Murdered By The Mob
Al Kaseltzer, the owner of the Rumbling Tum speakeasy in Chicago, was found shot dead late last night in the bar's office. As leader of The Misfits mob in Chicago, he had many enemies, and suspicion has naturally fallen upon members of The Red Hand Gang.
Al's right-hand man, Levi Malone, has assumed leadership of The Misfits, and is attempting to find out who is responsible for Al's death so that retribution can be paid. He's less certain that Al's death was a mob hit.
During the prohibition of 1928, where organized crime, prostitution, protectionism and illegal alcohol distribution flourishes, tensions and the probability of further bloodshed is high.
