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."
