Children Of The Whirlwind by Leroy Scott could possibly be the best book I’ve ever read. It takes place in New York City during prohibition. Its main focus is on two young people: the beautiful Maggie raised in poverty and forced to live among criminals and Larry the newly out of prison con man who just wants to go straight. It tells a story that is full of suspense as the characters lives interact with each other. Poor Larry is wanted by the police and is being hunted down by a gang of criminals while he desperately tries to prevent Maggie from beginning her own life of crime. I would recommend this book to everyone!
