Mysterious manuscript unlocks door to a long-lost Chicago

Backstory with Larry Potash

One day in 2010 Chicagoan John Corbett is perusing a junk store’s final sale. A manuscript of loose, typewritten paper grabs his attention. He recognizes this might be something interesting and he buys it. And what he buys is like a key to a long-lost Chicago world. The world of La Cosa Nostra. The Mafia. The Outfit. The Mob.

Larry Potash has the backstory on this “encyclopedia of the immoral.”
