Description

In "Satan's Circus" Mike Dash vividly opens up the world of 20th century New York, and tells the gripping story of Charley Becker's rise and fall, and the sensational murder trials that led to his gruesome death in the electric chair.

With a cast of colourful characters, from Big Tim Sullivan, the election-rigging vice lord, to future President Theodore Roosevelt and beloved gangster Jack Zelig, "Satan's Circus" brings to life an almost-forgotten Gotham - a raucous, gaudy and utterly corrupt city.
