In the 1920s and 30s, Minneapolis was crime city. Gangsters and politicians were partners running the Twin Cities’ illegal gambling, prostitution, and liquor concerns. Stopping the Presses is a searing look at this corrupt time, told through the life of martyred journalist Walter W. Liggett by his daughter, who finally sets the record straight. “Stopping the Presses is a fascinating look at the dangerous world of newspapers in the 1930s. . . . Hats off to Marda Liggett Woodbury, [this is] . . . the kind of work Walter Liggett would be proud of. Stopping the Presses is an important book.” --Steve Thayer, author of Saint Mudd and The Weatherman
