From the author of the best selling Mafia exposé Wiseguy comes this inside story of the billion dollar gambling industry and the secret. This is an overrated book But don t worry all is not lost It just needs to be re purposed and moved into a different genreI am putting in a recommendation to officially change the title to The Encyclopedia of Mafia Run Casinos If you are looking for a well told story then go somewhere else Preferably back into Mario Puzo novels On the other hand if you want to read a hastily put together story built by stacking facts and miscellaneous information on top of one another then look no furtherIt reads like a mixture of an MTV True Life episode mixed in with some History Channel narration than it does like a story about an ambitious mobsters rise and fall in the land of ol Las VegasThe story and the characters are there but you ll have to go digging for them if you want to find the bones of things
