Mark J. Price with Mafia Cop Killers in Akron (Dec 2)

From 1917 to 1919, terror struck the streets of Akron. As soldiers marched off to World War I and Spanish influenza ravaged the community, police officers faced a sinister threat. Murderous kingpin Rosario Borgia placed a bounty on officers’ heads for interfering with his criminal enterprises. Gangsters gunned down seven cops, killing five, in a series of brazen attacks over fifteen months. Author Mark J. Price chronicles the crimes, victims, gangsters and the relentless pursuit of justice in his new book, Mafia Cop Killers in Akron: The Gang War Before Prohibition.
