"A must read for folks following organized crime in America." --Ray Gibson, Chicago Tribune "Richard Cain embodied the symbiotic relationship of Chicago's legendary Outfit and the political machine that ran the city. . . . Great stuff for a look at the reality of life in the Mob and a window on how the 'city that works' really worked." --Booklist
