A documentary told in the best tradition of Irish storytelling. Fred's documentary starts with the "flight of the starving Irish" seeking "sanctuary" from Ireland's Great Potato Famine of the mid 1850s. Four generations and 100 years later, Fred's documentary takes us on a entertaining and dramatic tour through the Detroit's legal landscape as we visit "Courtrooms and Barrooms" and spend time with everyone from Detroit's "elite" to Detroit's murderous gang members. Fred finishes up with "a flurry of Fightin' Irish uppercuts" as he pulls back the curtain and exposes the American Oligarchs and other Wizard of Oz establishment figures. In between Fred introduces us to all manner of colorful characters from Wall Streeters to Street fighters, from CEOs to Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn look-alikes, from Hall of Famers to Hall of Shamers, from legit entrepreneurs to "blind pig" operators, from President Lincoln to President Trump and from Mona Lisa's to Mad Hatters. As Michigan's long-time Supreme Court Justice says, "If you like drama and entertainment, Fred's book has your name on it."
