      Gangsters have played a shady role in shaping Greater Boston's history. Authored by Boston Globe reporter Emily Sweeney and packed with photos, Gangland Boston reveals the hidden history of these places, bringing readers back in time to when the North End was wrought with gun violence, Hanover Street was known as a "shooting gallery", and guys named King Solomon, Beano Breen, and Mickey the Wiseguy ruled the underworld. Books will be available for sale and signing.
