Description by OLDIES.com:
Return to the violent years of the Prohibition Era in these true stories of New York's notorious gangland bootleggers, bookmakers, thugs and killers -- straight from the man who arrested them all. Based on the memoirs of Detective Barney Ruditsky, commanding officer of the city's famed Gangster Squad, "The Lawless Years" focuses on organized crime and high-profile gangsters, as did "The Untouchables," which debuted the very same year.
ARTIE MOON: A small time hit-man who has made millions after taking over a distillery, plans to seize sole control of Manhattan's mob.
JONATHAN WILLS: Detective Ruditsky is determined to bring down a crooked lawyer who has grown wealthy and powerful defending mobsters.
MILES MILLER: A jewelry robbery leaves a police officer shot dead, and Detective Ruditsky's investigation leads to a brilliant and cultured mob lawyer.
VICTOR GORDIDO: Ruditsky's probe of a brutal double slaying is thwarted when an eyewitness is too terrified of mob retaliation to testify.
