Casino: The Rise And Fall Of The Mob In Las Vegas

The Stardust...The Fremont...The Marina. They ran them all. And they lost. Big time. No one knew more about casinos than Frank 'Lefty' Rosenthal, the gambling mastermind who, along with his best friend and partner, Anthony 'the Ant' Spilotro, virtually ran Las Vegas for the mob. For years it was the perfect arrangement - Lefty provided the smarts, while Tony kept the bosses happy with weekly suitcases filled with millions in skimmed cash. It should have lasted forever but Lefty's obsessions with running the town - and Tony's obsession with Lefty's beautiful showgirl wife, Geri - eventually led to betrayals and investigations that exploded into one of the greatest scandals in mob history. Casino is the shattering inside account of how the mob finally lost its stranglehold on Las Vegas, the neon money-making machine it had created.
