Not in Our Town is the amazing, untold story of the Mob in the Heartland and the gritty, dangerous battle to keep Cincinnati clean and safe. Career newsman and vivid storyteller Peter Bronson has done extensive research and interviews to reveal what you didn’t know about…

  • The underworld network in Ohio cities
  • The Mafia bosses who lived in Cincinnati
  • The silent partner in Larry Flynt’s empire of porn
  • Police corruption and stag parties with hookers
  • How the media was played by the porn Mob
  • The plot to blow up the U.S. Supreme Court
  • The CIA spy linked to the JFK assassination who worked for Larry Flynt
  • The “Wizard of Odds,” Jerry Springer, the Mapplethorpe meltdown and more...

Fascinating pictures from the past and firsthand accounts make the wild history of the 60s and 70s come alive. Follow the battle as Cincinnati takes a stand against the Mob and vows, "Not in our town," backing it up with Thompson submachine guns, prosecution, and a national crusade against porn that extended into the 1990s. This fresh look at recent history sets the record straight on the heroes and villains of the war on porn.
