In the company of author Troy Taylor, pull off the trick of coming back alive from some of Chicago’s most infamous “one-way rides.” Meet the deadly womanizer Johann Hoch, who would propose to a woman within twenty minutes of meeting her and then poison her within a week. Follow “Terrible” Tommy O’Conner as he eluded the gallows for more than fifty years, until the city finally grew “tired of waiting” and dismantled them for the final time. Learn how even flower shops and cathedrals weren’t safe from gangland violence, and relive the tragic fire at the Iroquois Theatre, where a “fireproof ” curtain was made of cotton and did little to stop the blaze that killed more people than the Great Fire of 1871.
