"Chicago's fabled underworld is famous for its high-profile gangsters such as Al Capone. Not as publicly known, but perhaps even more notorious, are the names of "Mushmouth" Johnson, Jeff Fort and Larry Hanover. These African-American gangsters were every bit as powerful, intriguing and colorful as the Windy City's more famous white gangsters. Now for the first time, journalist Ron Chepesiuk reveals their fascinating stories and that of the many other interesting gangsters from Chicago's black underworld."-- Provided by publisher.

Not as good as Ron's other books, a little too much of the Mafia instead of the Black Gangsters.
