    Like nowhere else in America, Detroit flourished during Prohibition. The constant flow of liquor from across the Canadian border made Lake Erie a war zone, and lined the pockets of the men who ran the Purple Gang, the Unione Siciliana, and the Little Jewish Navy. But Prohibition was more than just a boon for gangsters. For newspapermen, it was a dream come true. It’s 1928, and the Detroit Times’ Connie Minor knows every thug, moll, and triggerman south of Eight Mile.

    Would you listen to Whiskey River again? Why?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the performance. The fact that he didn't take the time to learn the pronunciation of ANY of the Michigan locations is maddening. It hurt my ears to listen to him pronounce some of them. Street names I grew up knowing were transformed into grotesqueries.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Only the bad pronunciation
