SIN IN THE SECOND CITY Madams, Ministers, Playboys, and the Battle for America's Soul

by | Read by Joyce Bean

History • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Chicago has never sounded so dark or exciting as in this lively and detailed account of the Everleigh Club, a brothel in the city's Levee District. Delving deep into the history of vice, this production reveals the underworld activities of Chicago in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. As the story focuses on the famous Everleigh sisters, Joyce Bean delivers an engaging narrative. Her serious tone manages to lighten up when quoting characters or discussing some of the more interesting events of this history. Abbott's prose is well suited to audio in that it avoids complicated sentences and includes dialogue to liven up the material. L.E. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
