I love historical fiction and nonfiction history books that read like novels. Five Points, The Gangs of New York, When Corruption Was King, The Devil in the White City, Sin in the Second City. Yum. I love it when photographs of the period are included like they are in Sin in the Second City. Also, all the raciest topics are covered: Levee district, prostitution, alcohol, drugs, corruption. And to know it all took place here in Chicago and involved some of the most prestigious names at the time. Great book, especially if you live in Chicago.
