Baccano!, Vol. 1: The Rolling Bootlegs

Baccano!: Book 1

Ryohgo Narita

New York, 1931. The manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages is prohibited by law, but behind this prohibition, organized crime flourishes-so, too, do bank robbers, bootleggers, assassins, and homunculi. Some want money, some are chasing the secret to immortality, and others just want to have a really good time. You know what they say, though: You can't always get what you want.

A bright young bookeeper named Firo Prochainezo earns his place in an ancient organization. The flamboyant thieves Isaac Dian and Miria Harvent arrive in Grand Central Station with even grander plans. The Gandor mafioso brothers find themselves confronted with a problem. And small-time thug Dallas Genoard makes a very big mistake.

When the elixir of immortality hits Prohibition-era New York City, not even an undying amoral mastermind can control the chaos that follows. Turns out fortune favors the flat-out crazy!
