A Library Journal True Crime Bestseller
"Perry entertainingly takes us inside the glittering underworld of Jazz Age Chicago, where Al Capone sold bootleg liquor to millions and a booming 1920s media eagerly covered celebrities and sensational scandals. In this freewheeling world of daring, glamorous flappers and unrestrained organized crime, no story was bigger than the seemingly made-for-Hollywood murder trials of 'Beautiful Beulah' Annan and 'Stylish Belva' Gaertner, both accused of killing the male leads in their lives. For true crime buffs, history fans or anyone interested in the roaring 1920s, this one's a sure-fire hit."

"Perry takes a sturdy foundation of murder, sex and Chicago’s scandal-happy newspapers and builds a nonfiction marvel."
