The Bourbon King: The Life and Crimes of George Remus, Prohibition's Evil Genius

Love, murder, mountains of cash, and rivers of bourbon...the tale of George Remus will take readers into the dark heart of Prohibition. On sale now.

Author Bob Batchelor breathes life into the largest bootlegging operation in America—greater than that of Al Capone—and a man considered the best criminal defense lawyer of his era. Remus bought an empire of distilleries on Kentucky’s “Bourbon Trail” and used his other profession, as a pharmacist, to profit off legal loopholes. He spent millions bribing officials in the Harding Administration, and he created a roaring lifestyle that epitomized the Jazz Age over which he ruled.

That is, before he came crashing down in one of the most sensational murder cases in American history: a cheating wife, the G-man who seduced her and put Remus in jail, and the plunder of a Bourbon Empire. Remus murdered his wife in cold-blood and then shocked a nation winning his freedom based on a condition he invented—temporary maniacal insanity.

October 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Volstead Act, which put the enforcement teeth into Prohibition. But the law didn’t stop George Remus from cornering the boozy, illegal liquor marketplace and amassing a fortune that eclipsed $200 million (the equivalent of $4.75 billion today.) As em...

I just finished reading Candace Robb's Apothecary Rose. It was a very complex novel full of history and mystery that told a good story. The characters were well developed, the plot moved at a good, steady pace, and the history that was laced throughout made for a good read.
