When you and your brother Tony need work in prohibition-era Chicago, you find yourselves helping the police force by going undercover in an infamous Chicago gang. As a 'gangster' you'll go from rigging slot machines to running a protection racket, all the while risking your life. This exciting title details the ins and outs of the criminal mind in the 1920's, leading to an explosive finale in which the good win out and the bad guys are rumbled. Humourous cartoon-style illustrations and speech bubbles bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in. A complete glossary and index featured in every title makes "The Danger Zone" an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
