But I had no idea of the scope and duration of mob activity in Warren and Trumbull County. This book is outstanding. It starts with bootlegger James Mancini ("Jimmy Munsene"), the mobster who lived in the house on South Tod my dad always pointed out and describes his nationally-reknowned nightclub, his trials where Clarence Darrow was his defense attorney, his dog-racing track at Milton Dam, and his sensational end. It largely focuses on the 30s, 40s, and 50s and perhaps most on the Farah brothers who ran "the rackets" in Warren for most of these years.
I'd never heard of the Jungle Inn and that part of the book itself is worth the price. But the story is much broader than just that one club. Great book.
As I got older, I learned a lot but by then it was closed down. Interesting history of the place.
