A book was published early this year, " The Purple Gang ", by Paul Kavieff. It
discusses the Jewish gangster era in Detroit. The Purple gang began as
bootleggers, and continued on to murder and mayhem. Many criminals connections
to other other cities and gangs are noted. This book may be of value since
Detroit is across the river >from Windsor, Canada.
