Less obvious than perhaps Al Capone, but perhaps even more vicious are the names of John Mushmouth Johnson, Jeff Fort and Larry Hoover from the Chicago underworld. Ron Chepesiuk reveals, for the first time, the stories of these African American gangsters who were every bit as powerful, intriguing and colorful as the Windy City's more famous white gangsters. Each page is more exciting than the previous as Ron Chepesiuk exposes never-before-known facts about the black gangsters that once ruled the Chicago streets.
