About the book:

1931 is an epic, riveting Great Depression crime saga and a classic American novel, from the time of the grenade and the tommy gun and the bloody, undeclared, no holds barred war on the streets and shores of the United States, when the Mafia ran bootlegging with an iron fist and the Special Agents of the Bureau of Investigation took on the Mafia from coast to coast.
