More About Shocking Stories of the Cleveland Mob by Ted Schwarz
 
 
 
Overview

They are the dirty little secrets of Cleveland's past, mob guys so good—or so bad—that you rarely hear their stories. Men such as Micky McBride turned newsboys into sluggers, gave bookies a run for suckers' losing bets and created the Cleveland Browns when football was still a sport the players knew how to win. There was the Jewish Navy, taking laundry trucks to Canada and bringing back barges filled with booze. Then there were the rug joints—the Harvard Club, the Beverly Hills Club, the Mounds Club—where Moe Dalitz mastered the art of taking your money and helped build Las Vegas, the best "man trap" in America. Join author Ted Schwarz as he tracks wanted killers through the Statler Hotel and navigates the secret history of the Cleveland mob.
