Before Al Capone became a household name, a German immigrant named George Remus quit practicing law and started trafficking whiskey. Within two years he was a multi-billionaire. Combining research with novelistic flair, Abbott uncovers the story of a rags-to-riches entrepreneur and a forgotten heroine, the excesses and absurdities of the Jazz Age, and the infinite human capacity to deceive.
