Paperback: $22.53
Prints in 3-5 business days
On 25th December 1921, Santa Claus made the most drastic error of his career. A mistake in his chimney orientation meant that while intending to visit a tenement building in Chicago's poorest area,... More > he instead found himself face to face with the most notorious gangster in Chicago at that time. It was a mistake that was to change the very course of Christmas - and would nearly destroy the Christmas icon's very existence. Saint or Sinner? is the culmination of years of painstaking research. Through articles, interviews, official documents and a variety of other sources, the work explores Claus's rise through Gangland in the ten years that followed his fateful meeting. From humble beginnings, Claus's rise through Prohibition Chicago is meticulously documented. Prostitution, smuggling, theft, violence and even murder are seen not only to have been embraced by Christmas's most celebrated personification - but perfected by him, in the creation of Gangland's most brutal empire.< Less

The other must be satisfied with second place.< Less
