Abstract:

At the turn of the twentieth century, Detroit is still decades away from becoming the "Motor City." The budding manufacturing town is little more than a confederation of tightly knit ethnic enclaves, ruled over by men like Abner Crownover III, horse-coach baron, and James Dolan, a portly politician who runs the city government from behind the scenes. They had thought their grip on this young city was secure, but internal combustion is about to destroy their empire. An industrial wizard named Henry Ford has come to Detroit with a dream of making a fortune from horseless carriages. Twice bankrupted, he has lost the faith of every investor in town, save for Crownover's son Harlan. When Dolan and his father refuse to finance Harlan's new business venture, Harlan turns to the Mafia for the money.
