The American Chronicles, Book 3 of 9
In this, the third, explosive volume of Robert Vaughan's AMERICAN CHRONICLES, prohibition and gangland wars define the era. The 1920's were perhaps the most exciting and glamorous decade of the century, as America leaves behind the strife and deprivations of war, while the Jazz Age brings the young, dissolute, and decadent into the smoky interiors of basement speakeasies. Idealistic young journalist Kendra Mills risks her career--and her life--to expose the criminal underside of American society. Novelist Eric Twainbough finds himself thrust into the limelight when his work unexpectedly becomes successful. Gangster Kerry O'Braugh, an Irish-Sicilian immigrant, finds a way out of a harsh reformatory so that he can to become the kingpin of St. Louis gangland.
