Publisher Description:
A slice of underworld life, '57, Chicago is a fact-based fictional thriller.


The banker's dead--a mob killing with repercussions. Money's tied up. Three men are on a collision course:


Al. He's a layoff bookie, thinks he can live as a middleman between his customers and the Outfit. His credo: Never take a position.


The Lip. Desperate and dangerous, he's a fight promoter trying to create the fight of a lifetime.


The Hammer. A great black hope. He's a boxer, thrust into an uncomfortable limelight. A potential heavyweight champ, his biggest fight is with himself.


The cops swarm. The gangsters rage. One night. One fight. No way they can all win. The heat's intense, the stakes are high and the outcome's impossible to predict. The mystery: Who makes it out alive? It's a bloody, savage night in '57, Chicago.
