Blazing from the West Side, the Great Chicago Fire left nothing but ashy remnants of the developing city—leveling its landscape but certainly not its spirit. While the West Side was home to the infamous O’Leary barn, it was also where news of some of the city’s most gruesome and horrific crimes reverberated throughout the state and across the country. Read about the bloody end of Roger “The Terrible” Touhy, who, although he undoubtedly lived up to his name, met an ill-deserved fate. Troy Taylor also delves into the life of John Wayne Gacy—the depraved man masked by the clown costume—and yet again proves to be a master storyteller and historian of Chicago’s criminal underworld.
