The November selection for the Radio Bookclub is Gangbuster: One Man’s Battle Against Crime, Corruption, and the Klan by Alan Prendergast.
This book tells the story of Denver District Attorney Philip Van Cise, who in the 1920s busted up a crime ring that had been thriving in the city. Van Cise then turned his attention to an even greater threat—the Ku Klux Klan, which was in the process of taking over state government.
This episode was broadcast on KGNU on Thursday November 23rd at 9.00am.
