Description


All the Law in the World Won't Stop Them is the story of the darker side of Saratoga Springs. For over one hundred years Saratoga Springs experienced a battle between the forces of law and order and the forces of vice, crime and corruption. The Saratoga Springs of yesteryear would hardly be recognizable today. Gambling, violence, crime and the most blatant forms of corruption allowed gamblers and gangsters to take over the town and run virtually untouched by the law. Local criminals and national organized crime figures ran the town, often with the support of the local citizenry. These are their stories. Stories of crime, gambling and corruption in Saratoga Springs through 1921, and they are all true.
