The Ghosts of Eden Park Karen AbbottKaren Abbott brilliantly pieces together this page turner through meticulous resource and without any fictional dialogue With so much chronicled information I suspected this might be a dry journaling of events but no far from it It is a rich narrative a captivating story about a volatile time in American history that involved widespread corruption amongst a who s who of politicians judges law enforcement and civilians So many wanted a piece of the bootlegging action Each major character either good or bad was masterfully depicted by Abbott and fascinating to follow Day to day business included maneuvering extortion bribery backstabbing and an incomprehensible volume of money mind boggling It was difficult choosing my favorite character as I was as fascinated by the good guys as well as the bad Mabel Walker Willenbrandt the First Lady of Law was an inspiration George Remus pharmacist lawyer and bootlegger was one heck of a visionary A genius with unpredictable anger insane jealousy and misplaced trust I was gobsmacked by his story One of the best non fiction books I have read
