AL CAPONE, JOHNNY TORRIO AND VIRGINIA – DANGEROUS ANGEL © Sten Nordland (Author)
The turn of the nineteenth century ... Immigration is rife in the whole of the USA.
On August 17, 1896, Virginia Crown was born … some twenty years later, a desire for a life beyond all dreams would affect the entire Chicago gangland.
Al Capone, Johnny Torrio and Virginia – Dangerous Angel portrays the American gangster life in the 1920’s, based on well-researched facts but cast in the form of a novel ... A sexually charged and violent historical perspective about an innocent, angelic young girl (although not that innocent) being able to infiltrate the power structures of the most dangerous gangs the world has ever seen, ending up wealthy beyond imagination.
Al Capone’s city was spelled CHICAGO … Chicago was like a lustful woman waiting to be seduced, and Al Capone wouldn’t lose his erection until she lay at his feet begging for mercy. It wasn’t a question of desire – it was rape, plain and simple.
Chicago was perfectly vulnerable to becoming the city of crime. A noisy, messy, pugnacious city, full of gambling dens, speakeasies and quarrelsome wills. A city where prostitution flourished and alcohol flowed … open to everyone with the money to pay for a few moments of happiness.
Al Capone, Johnny Torrio and Virginia – Dangerous Angel reflects a thrilling adventure during Prohibition in America, where the rules of the street replaced the rule of law and set the scene for a “Dangerous Angel”.
