Chicago in the Roaring Twenties: crime is rampant, it is a world of violence, intimidation, bribery and treachery. Rival gangs are locked in violent power struggles as each ambitious hood looks to become the King of Chicago. Amidst this war our heroes, the investigators, must face the rum-running gangs of the Windy City to solve a murder.
Marseilles is a colorful port city in southern France. Here within the Casbah international gangs vie for control and profits. The discovery of a golden statuette leads investigators to the heart of Marseilles where they get caught up in more than they bargained for.
This book is mostly a scenario compilation, but it also includes two short articles providing source material on the 1920s.
