The central figure, Frank Rosenthal, is interesting although hardly the reticent gentleman portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the movie.

This is the Las Vegas when the mob was there and the police were none too polite if you showed a shady side.


As it is this, the book is very interesting at parts, but also felt a bit slow.
