Synopsis: [This is the Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]
The exhilarating true life story of one of America's most nefarious criminals, the man who fixed the 1919 World Series, and Boardwalk Empire's baddest bad guy.
Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award and read by Grover Gardner
The model for The Great Gatsby's Meyer Wolfsheim and Nathan Detroit from Guys and Dolls, Arnold Rothstein was an underworld genius, racketeer, rumrunner, political fixer, and criminal mastermind who, as F. Scott Fitzgerald observed, played ''with the faith of fifteen million people with the single-mindedness of a burglar blowing a safe.'' David Piertrusza unearths the canny way Rothstein fixed the 1919 World Series and unravels the mystery of A.R.'s November 1928 murder in a Times Square hotel room.
Transporting listeners onto Jazz Age Broadway with its thugs, bookies, denizens of the race tracks, showgirls, political movers-and-shakers and stars of the Golden Age of Sports, this is a biography of the godfather of organized crime in America, who reigned supreme when the fast buck ruled and violence stalked the streets of Gotham.
About the Author: DAVID PIETRUSZA has written or edited over three dozen books. An expert on the 1920s, he works as a public information officer. He lives in upstate New York.
