about this item

A New York Times Bestseller
Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Winner in True Crime

Now in paperback, the critically acclaimed New York Times Bestseller about a championship city haunted by a deadly wave of racist terror

Detroit, mid-1930s: In a city abuzz over its unrivaled sports success, gun-loving baseball fan Dayton Dean became ensnared in the nefarious and deadly Black Legion. The secretive, Klan-like group was executing a wicked plan of terror, murdering enemies, flogging associates, and contemplating armed rebellion. The Legion boasted tens of thousands of members across the Midwest, among them politicians and prominent citizens—even, possibly, a beloved athlete. Award-winning author Tom Stanton has written a stunning tale of history, crime, and sports.
