Open City: True Story of the KC Crime Family 1900-1950 by William Ouseley
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
"Open City" is a nearly comprehensive account of the mafia in Kansas City. The city was truly corrupt, especially during the heyday of the 20's and 30's, permeating into politics. I would only recommend this one to a true history die-hard because Ousely's writing is all over the place.
