Once Upon a Time in Chicago

Once Upon a Time in Chicago

It's the roaring twenties and the world is in the grip of Prohibition! 


In the gritty ganglands of Chicago, Al Capone and his Outfit have a stranglehold on the city. Sicilian-American Sal Scavuzzo takes full advantage of the underground activities, drinking at the speakeasies, gambling, and wooing the dames. But when he gets in too deep with the gangsters, Sal's pleasurable lifestyle is threatened. Will he continue his reckless ways, or will he settle down and go the straight and narrow? 


If you enjoyed The Godfather or Boardwalk Empire, you'll love this thrilling novel of 1920s gangster life in Prohibition Chicago.

    Ray P - Mary Walsh takes the reader on a tour of Prohibition/Depression era Chicago as it impacts a struggling Italian family. Executing the perilous balancing act of being true to the facts while producing an interesting narrative, Walsh keeps the reader involved and looking forward to reading more.As a former Chicagoan who also grew up in a family where foreign accents were common and money came sometimes in buckets, more often in dribbles, Walsh's book took me back to places that only exist in memory today.
