Terror in the City of Champions

Murder, Baseball, and the Secret Society that Shocked Depression-era Detroit

2016 INDIES Winner
Gold, True Crime (Adult Nonfiction)

A stunning tale of history, crime, and sports. Richly portraying 1930s America, Terror in the City of Champions features a pageant of colorful figures: iconic athletes, sanctimonious criminals, scheming industrial titans, a bigoted radio priest, a love-smitten celebrity couple, J. Edgar Hoover, and two future presidents, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. It is a rollicking true story set at the confluence of hard luck, hope, victory, and violence.
