SBN 87000-096-9. 489 p. This is as highly dramatic and somewhat lurid biography of Johnny "J.T." Torrio, an Italian-born child brought to the U.S. by his widowed mother, and who had "an apprenticeship in evil" in New York City. Torrio was summoned to Chicago by a cousin married to Jim Colosimo, "Diamond Jim" of bawdy house fame, for help in the business. J.T. ulimately became the man behind the Capone gang, the creator of the National Crime Syndicate, the gangster of gangsters. The author was a Chicago newspaperman with the Chicago Sun-Times, an award-winning crime reporter, and the author of several books including two that inspired two major motion pictures. The book is well researched and includes photographs, bibliography, notes, a "Chronology of Crime," and index. First published in 1970, this edition was a 1971 selection of the Nostalgia Book Club. Black hardcover book is fine; the dust jacket has one very small chip. , Bookseller Inventory #
