Bootleggers, gambling ringleaders, arsonists, narcotics dealers, and gang murderers—a variety of characters flourished in the era known as Prohibition, and Tampa, Florida, was where they battled for supremacy of the criminal underworld. With meticulous detail, Scott M. Deitche documents the rise of the infamous Trafficante family, ruthless competitors in a “violent, shifting place, where loyalties and power quickly changed.”
