U.S. prohibition laws in the 1920's led to lucrative dealings between business-savvy Canadians and big-time hoods from south of the 49th parallel. Underground operations literally flourished, such as the stash of booze and cash hidden beneath the streets of Moose Jaw by the notorious Al Capone and his Canadian partner Diamond Jim Grady.

Mobsters and Rumrunners of Canada is a collection of true stories that are the stuff of legends, complete with brutal slayings and Keystone Cop misadventures. Read about rumrunners from across Canada who used elaborate tricks and ruses to sneak booze past the long arm of the law on both sides of the border. You'll meet such colourful characters as Rocco Perri, the Purple Gang, Dutch Schulz and many more.
