I did like a lot of the detail in this book, especially some of the more "lay of the land" type descriptions of how gambling and prostitution were viewed at the turn of the century, but at times I just felt like it took a really long time to get through certain parts of the trial and retrial pieces. I just never really looked forward to reading this or got lost in it, but when I did find the time to read it, I felt like I was learning something about history and I liked the detail on the legal procedure.
