About the Author

Jeff Coen is a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, covering federal trials and investigations from the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in downtown Chicago.

"[A] revealing, shocking book ... superbly crafted." --Publishers Weekly "A telling look inside the twisted world of organized crime, sure to interest those who follow mob mayhem." --Kirkus Reviews "[An] authoritative account ... indispensable to truly knowing how Chicago works." -- Chicago Tribune "Painting a vivid picture ... riveting ... one of the best accounts on record." "[Coen has produced] a careful account." -- Bloomsbury Review "(An) episodic telling ... a useful and lucid history ... [the book] teems with disturbing local color." --Gaper's Block "The book reads like a fast paced crime thriller and, indeed, though it is nonfiction, it makes for fascinating reading." -- The Times Coen's narrative is compelling even when covering materials where we already know the trial's outcome and gives the participants--from lawyers to prosecutors to defendents--a rich, full rendering which is no easy feat."
