I must have turned to my husband many times during this listen and said, "Wow, are we lucky we weren't around during prohibition". An incredible read and an amazing peek into NYC at a pivotal time. The story of the dialpainter girls is enough to make you buy this book!
overall, a wonderful listen. skillfully researched and written. i admire the author's ability to capture this world and its bizarre characters with clarity and compassion.
Riveting, eye-opening, a true crime beautifully written. This listen gave birth to my turn of the century true crime fascination.
This is my pick for my audible book of the year. Mesmerizing. A perfect listen.
It wasn't until I realized that this was probably the actual taping of the A&E episode that I understood why music was constant in the background. Distracting.
I was surprised by how much I was engaged by this book. Bugliosi must be THE world's best lawyer turned author. Really, an amazing writer.
