Jess then goes on to tell Alex all about the group behind the murder of Charles Poole along with at least 49 others; the Black Legion. Who were it's members? What roles did they play in society? And what other discoveries did Ruth uncover in her life? Did she go on a ride in a space ship? Listen in and find out.
