Publisher Comments:

Twenty-one short, sizzling, behind-the-headlines stories about the men, the Mob, movie stars, and missing money that made early Vegas such a hot spot in the Nevada desert in the early â??40s to â??60s.  From Bugsyâ??s Flamingo to beheadings at the Riviera, from the Rat Pack to Sinatraâ??s sucker punch. Diagrams of mob events and photos of mobsters and celebrities are included.

Book Gobbler 3, December 16, 2006 (view all comments by Book Gobbler 3)
I have given this book to several people -- an 24 year old that loves the Sopranos and has recently gone to Vegas for the first time (bachelor party), a 66 year old for his birthday, and a 52 year old business associate. All have absolutely loved the book. The comments were: "Loved the short stories and the fact that they are all independent of one another."
"Gave them a new perspective on a town they love."
"Fun to read."
"Felt like they were chatting with the author in a coffee shop at the Riviera."

All in all -- I would definitely give this book again. Especially to the person who has everything. I also enjoyed the book and I'm a 45 year old gal who's been to Vegas a dozen or so times.

GREAT Gift -- Highly recommended!
