The Ghosts of Eden Park summary Ú 109 Karen Abbott Ø 9 free read Glamorous second wife Imogene host at their Cincinnati mansion with party favors ranging from diamond jewelry for the men to brand new Pontiacs for the women By the summer of 1921 Remus owns 35 percent of all the liuor in the United StatesPioneering prosecutor Mabel Walker Willebrandt is determined to bring him down Willebrandt's bosses at the US Attorney's office hired her right out of law school ass. Competently executed yet disappointingly dull I have greatly enjoyed Abbott s other work and expected this to be a slam dunk Unfortunately I found myself bored of the narrative and apathetic about the subject matterGenerally speaking bootlegging and Prohibition are not topics that lend themselves particularly well to narrative nonfiction They certainly seem like they should largely because fiction has done such a good job with this topic but the sad fact is that money and temporary criminal success don t necessarily make a subject worthy of being immortalized on the proverbial pageSuch is the case with the subjects of this particular narrative Remus is certainly a savvy businessman but he s also mentally unstable and not much of an intellectual even if you concede he had some decent street smarts Even that feels worthless though since by the end of his tale he s barely comprehensible Imogene seems like a nasty opportunist rather than the clever con woman who finally snaps that the book seems to want her to beAbbott s writing and research are both good but the choice of subject matter feels ill advised While the story has some interesting moments it simply isn t compelling enough to warrant an entire book This could have been a great long form article but as a book it feels indulgent and excessiveI received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
