A book bought at an estate sale in Oklahoma City is actually written by a former city manager of Oklahoma City.

The book contains "all the dirty history of early Oklahoma City," says the owner of the book.

The author, Albert Mcrill, was the city manager from 1931-1933. And the book was published in 1955.

According to antique expert, Matt McNeil, unsigned copies of the book go for about $100-$150.

This specific book has been reprinted, so the value has gone down. However, the book is still worth about $175-$200 because it has been signed by the author.
