Description
Thunder Citypresents Detroit in the process of becoming the Motor City. Harlan Crownover, scion of a great family of carriage makers, battles with his father to invest in a company run by Henry Ford, who has failed twice before in the automobile business. Desperate for funds, Harlan turns to Big . Jim Dolan, the Midwest's most powerful political boss, and Sal Borneo, a visionary mafioso struggling to bring the commerce of vice into the new century. Allies at first, they soon will be mortal enemies. At the crisis, only Edith Hampton Crownover, Harlan's troubled, aristocratic mother, will be in a position to shift the balance of power.

display_descriptionIn the days of the horse-drawn carriage, two men fight against Detroit's power brokers for the promise of the automobile-and the future of a city 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. In the battle for its future, Detroit's streets will run with blood. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
