The case of the notorious Charlie Lucky Luciano and his $12-million-a-year prostitution ring rattled and intrigued New York City during the Great Depression. Charlie Lucky eluded the police for years, until rackets-squad prosecutor Thomas E. Dewey connected him with the operation and he was finally convicted of compulsory prostitution. This book takes readers through this infamous case from a unique slant -- from the amazing case histories of the prostitutes who served as material witnesses. It includes confiscated letters that desperate prostitutes sent to their district attorneys and rare photos of material witnesses, including the legendary Cokey Flo.
