Chicago author and historian Richard C. Lindberg will take you on a tour of famous crime scenes and introduce you to a rogues' gallery of crooks, killers, corrupt politicians and n'er-do-wells spanning nearly 150 years of Chicago history. From the 1870s, when gambler-politician Michael C. McDonald helped forge a criminal empire and the underpinnings of Chicago's Democratic Machine, through the heyday of the old South Side "badlands" known as the "Levee," to the era of John Dillinger, Al Capone, and some modern day criminals, Lindberg weaves city history and infamy into a compelling story. Lindberg has appeared on many cable television programs including Cities of the Underworld, American Justice, Deadly Women, Masterminds, and many others. He is the author of 15 published books.
