KIRKUS REVIEW

A crime reporter (formerly of The American) trusted by the underworld and its rulers gives his warning of the stranglehold the racketeers have acquired since they have taken to Big Business methods. It reads like an incredible outline for the films, higher-ups whose fingers never get dirty and yet who gather in fantastic profits from their affiliations with pin ball games, ""numbers"", race tracks, trade in women, loans, night clubs, unions and industrial shakedowns, real estate, diamonds, stocks and bonds, gambling, foodstuffs, garages and automobiles, abortions, gun running and counterfeiting, narcotics. This is the expurgated edition -- the original is said to have been more or less dynamite. Much less impersonal than The Run For Your Money (page 371) this is sensational reading -- but J. Edgar Hoover has commended Mooney's work.
