Terror in the City of Champions


"Mid-1930s Detroit:  As the city basked in its unrivaled sports success, the nefarious Black Legion spread through the region's underbelly.  The secretive, Klan-like group was murdering enemies, flogging associates, and planning armed rebellion--all while the city celebrated boxer Joe Louis and three world championship teams.  The Legion boasted tens of thousands of members across the Midwest, among them politicians and prominent citizens--even, possibly, a beloved athlete.  Award-winning author Tom Stanton has written a stunning tale set at the confluence of hard luck, hope, victory, and violence."
