"Karlen offers a colorful and impressively researched account of the Minneapolis underworld and his fascinating relative that feels right out of Damon Runyon's Guys and Dolls." —Star Tribune

"Deliciously snappy." —American Jewish World

"Karlen brings back the days when Peggy Lee walked into Augie's straight off the bus from North Dakota, when mid-century celebrities like Frank Sinatra visited Hennepin Avenue, and when the most powerful crime lords in the land checked their guns at the door when they visited Augie's." —MinnPost

"Augie's Secrets is filled with stunning, stylish prose that captures the flavor of the Jewish underworld of downtown Minneapolis down to its last rubout and pastrami sandwich." —Paul Maccabee, author of John Dillinger Slept Here: A Crooks' Tour of Crime and Corruption in St. Paul, 1920–1936
