More About Gangs of St. Louis by Daniel Waugh
 
 
 
Overview
St. Louis was a city under siege during Prohibition. Seven different criminal gangs violently vied for control of the town s illegal enterprises. Although their names (the Green Ones, the Pillow Gang, the Russo Gang, Egan s Rats, the Hogan Gang, the Cuckoo Gang and the Shelton Gang) are familiar to many, their exploits have remained largely undocumented until now. Learn how an awkward gunshot wound gave the Pillow Gang its name and why Willie Russo s bizarre midnight interview with a reporter from the St. Louis Star involved an automatic pistol and a floating hunk of cheese. From daring bank robberies to cold-blooded betrayals, Gangs of St. Louis chronicles a fierce yet juicy slice of the Gateway City s history that rivaled anything seen in New York or Chicago."
