For anyone who thought political corruption in Chicago started with the first Mayor Daley, or Al Capone introduced the Windy City to organized crime, do I have news for you! This book catalogs a time before either of the names were even a whisper and Chicago was home to the most famous brothel in America. Well-researched and a fun read!
