This book recounts a famous turf war raged during Prohibition. Charlie Birger's outsized ambitions brought him from New York to southern Illinois in search of fortune as a bootlegger. He soon found that his dream to be "even bigger than Al Capone" faced a few hurdles-including the vicious Shelton Brothers and Helen Holbrook, a beautiful, alcoholic socialite from Shawneetown, whose simultaneous affairs with Birger and Carl Shelton fueled a bloody and bizarre gang war.
