"McDonald was warmly welcomed into the White House by two sitting presidents who recognized him for what he was: the reigning 'boss' of Chicago. In a colorful and often riotous life, McDonald seemed to control everything around him--everything, that is, except events in his personal life. His first wife, the fiery Mary Noonan McDonald, ran off with a Catholic priest. The second, Dora Feldman, twenty-five years his junior, murdered her teenaged lover in a sensational 1907 scandal that broke Mike's heart and drove him to an early grave."--The publisher

"In October 1955, three Chicago boys were found murdered, their bodies naked and dumped in a ditch in Robinson Woods on the city's Northwest Side. A community and a nation were shocked. The public was tranfixed as local and national television stations aired stark footage of the first hours of the investigation. Life and Newsweek magazines published exclusive stories the following week. Forty-seven years later, when Kenneth Hansen was convicted and sentenced for the murders, the case was considered solved at last--until questions were raised about Hansen's guilt."--Dust jacket flap
