Publisher Comments:

Edward G Robinson is in Las Vegas researching his new movie, The Cincinnatti Kid with Steve McQueen. Frank Sinatra puts him in touch with Eddie G., floor manager of the Sands Casino and friend to the Rat Pack who frequent it.

But rumour has it that Howard Hughes is also in town looking to buy a casino; and what Hughes wants he usually gets. Jack Entratter, the owner of the Sands tries to fight the takeover and sends Eddie G., to go and convince Howard Hughes not to pursue it.

Then, Entratter's secretary goes missing and Eddie G. is entrusted with looking for her, delving into the murky underworld of Las Vegas; a world he knows well . . .

Review:

"Las Vegas casino veteran Eddie Gianelli continues to reminisce about his adventures with crooks and celebrities in Randisi's entertaining ninth Rat Pack mystery (after 2013's You Make Me Feel So Dead). In 1964, Eddie G., a pit boss and problem solver for Sands Casino operator Jack Entratter, is asked by none other than Frank Sinatra to see that Edward G. Robinson, in town to prep for his poker-player role in The Cincinnati Kid, gets everything he needs. Eddie is also contacted by eccentric tycoon Howard Hughes for advice on investing in Las Vegas casinos. Meanwhile, Entratter's secretary, Helen Simms, has been found hanging from a ceiling pipe in the office restroom. Eddie manages to meet these challenges head-on and still find time to carouse with Frank, Dino, and the gentlemanly Robinson, in this breezy period romp. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary.
