Tony Kalkiewicz was a hardened career gangster. When he met the younger, up-and-coming bootlegger John Kwiatkowski, they hit it off. But when the smarter John took over his gang, Tony gave up the life. In the end they would need each other for one last, explosive heist that would be their undoing and send one of the gang to the chair.Set in Prohibition-era Buffalo, New York, "They Call Me Korney" is based on a true story and is full of never-before-seen photos and original research.
