Richard Lindberg is one of the foremost authorities on Chicago history. He’s written multiple, fine books on some of the lost history of this city. In his latest book, Gangland Chicago, Richard talks gangsters. From the organized crime outfits to vice to booze and gambling and all that these endeavors entail, this is the book you need to read if you’ve ever been interested in crime. Chicago’s done it as well as any other city. Lindberg tells this fascinating story from the beginning, when Chicago was a nothing town, all the way up through the modern-day street gangs and organized cartels involved in the drug game.

Joining Lindberg is one of our favorite guests, John Drummond. John is a legendary newsman who knew of all of the crooks and bosses during his day and is still keeping up with it.
