Giveaway: Mob Fest '29: The True Story Behind the Birth of Organized Crime

UPDATE: Carey won and should be contacted by the sponsor soon.

New from Byliner:

Mob Fest ’29
The True Story Behind the Birth of Organized Crime

by Bill Tonelli

In this brilliantly subversive work, Bill Tonelli investigates the long-standing myth of the mob’s founding—a legendary week in May 1929 in which a who’s who of American crime, led by Al Capone, are said to have assembled in Atlantic City, New Jersey, to make peace and divvy up the country’s illegal enterprises. But what really happened that criminally star-studded week? Tonelli sifts the facts from the malarkey, and in so doing reveals how and why the cops, the mobsters, and the writers who love them prefer not to get their stories straight. Mob Fest ’29 combines the thrills of a mostly true crime story with the madcap scholarship of a savvy Mafia investigator.
It's a $2 download at Amazon.
