9780615348445: Monk and Me

It's 1926: the heart of the Golden Twenties. Under the heavy hand of Prohibition, the legendary gangster Al Capone has lined his pockets dealing in black-market booze. For Monk Harpinski and his eccentric Uncle Izzy, the chance to get rich quick is too good to pass up. They embark on a series of increasingly harebrained schemes to provide Big Al with product smuggled across the river from Canada to Detroit City - and to make their fortune. But tangling with the law and men like Capone, Frank Nitti, and the infamous Purple Gang can be a dangerous game... Paddy O'Brian is Monk's childhood friend who recounts these adventures from the distance of nearly a decade. He always thought the risk was too great, and tried to draw his buddy back to the straight and narrow. But Paddy has secrets of his own... Monk, Paddy, Uncle Izzy, and a host of other characters - the men they meet and the women they love - come to life in these pages. Their world is richly constructed with stunning historical detail, and their story is chock-full of hilarious antics and heart-pounding action. Monk and Me is a wild ride through one of the most fascinating eras in American history.
