Written by George Tombs, an award-winning journalist and historian, this book gives a fascinating insider’s look at a complex, driven man who is never out of the news for long. The book will include key testimony and evidence from Black’s Chicago trial, as well as insights into his defence, strategies, hopes . . . and fears. Love him or hate him, Black is a fighter who never says die. Robber Baron tells the story of a modern-day Citizen Kane, helping readers understand why Black does what he does.
