(From the publisher):
When the twentieth century was in its infancy, two inventions spawned the biggest industries in history: the automobile and organized crime.
Harlan Crownover, scion of a great family of carriage makers, battles with his father to invest in a company run by Henry Ford. Desperate for funds, Harlan turns to Big Jim Dolan, the Midwest's most powerful political boss, and Sal Borneo, a visionary mafioso struggling to bring the commerce of vice into the new century. Allies at first, Harlan soon discovers how quickly friends can become mortal enemies...
