When a well-connected Minneapolis organized crime member asked the author of Hidden History of the Minnesota River Valley and Twin Cities Prohibition to write the history of the local underworld, she simply couldn't refuse Through newspaper articles and court documents, Johanneck fleshes out the rackets and the racketeers who ran them from the mid-1800's through the 1980's. But don't expect the city's crimes to be committed by the usual suspects. Avarice knows no bounds. Minneapolis' twin city has got nothing on her.
