Summary
A big-shouldered, big-trouble thriller set in mobbed-up 1920s Chicago - a city where some people knew too much, and where everyone should have known better₇by the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of The Untouchables. Chicago is that rarest of literary creations: a book that combines spectacular elegance of craft with a kinetic wallop as fierce as the February wind gusting off Lake Michigan

Summary
Post-9/11 Chicago becomes the site of a cultural collision involving a sixties-style anti-establishment professor who is targeted for his relationship with an African-American woman, a veiled Ph.D. candidate whose traditional upbringing is challenged by her American experiences, and an émigré whose western values are countered by questions about his daughter's honor
