About this title:

Synopsis: Twenty-five-year-old mechanic Bob Lowe was a hard working husband whose biggest concern was providing for his family. All that changed in the fall of 1972, when he became the sole witness to a murder on Chicago's West Side.

The victim was a neighbor, blown away by the blast of a sawed-off shotgun. The accused was Harry Aleman, cultured and charismatic-and one of the most notorious men in mob history. And Lowe could be the one man finally to put Aleman behind bars.

Promised refuge as a protected witness, Lowe agreed to testify. But through a tangled web of politics and payoffs, connections and corruption, Aleman was acquitted, putting Lowe's life in jeopardy. Disillusioned and depressed, Lowe spiraled into a world of alcoholism, drugs, and crime, losing both his family and his self-respect. Finally, after a quarter of a century, he emerged again to confront Aleman, and his own personal demons, in a dramatic, history-making trial.

Frightening, heart-wrenching, and ultimately triumphant, Everybody Pays combines the dark moral twists of James Ellroy with the kinetic jolts of a Martin Scorsese mob tale. Given unlimited access to courtroom transcripts and FBI reports, and with exclusive interviews with the key players, the authors deliver a riveting account of politics and power, of a poisoned legal system, of the revealing truths behind the Witness Protection Program, and of life and death inside and outside the mob.

Review: When Chicago's deadliest hit man, Harry Aleman, was brought to trial in the late 1970s, not a single one of the city's more than 1,000 mob-related murders had been solved. This time, with a witness willing to testify, prosecutors believed they had a foolproof case. But the mob was difficult to catch for more reasons than one--a strict code of silence, witnesses who turned up dead, and cops and even judges under their control. Bob Lowe, the lone witness to the murder Aleman was tried for, learned this the hard way. Aleman was acquitted the first time around, and wasn't retried (and convicted) until 20 years later. Meanwhile, Lowe and his family were forced to go into hiding not once but twice, and their lives were destroyed. Veteran Chicago Tribune writers Maurice Possley and Rick Kogan have written a searing portrayal of the mob's skewed moral universe, the legal system it corrupted, and a witness-protection system riddled with flaws. In this charged and ultimately redemptive story, only one man emerges a hero. --Lesley Reed
