      I'm a Chicago native and the cool thing about this book is that it actually talks about old Chicago, I'm going back the mid 60's probably. But all in all it's neat to know things about your town or places that don't exsist (sp.) anymore.

      Nicely written. Touched critically on a major problem of our society. Not really violence focused, but exciting and nicely placed.Interesting character development. These are folks that you can imagine seeing in a big city. I would really like to see more of Nick Acropolis.
