Casino: Love and Honor in Las Vegas

Front Cover
Pocket Books, 1996 - Social Science - 363 pages
From Nicholas Pileggi comes this tale of love, marriage, adultery, murder, and revenge Mafia-style, at once a love story and a bigger than life business story, the business being Las Vegas's multibillion-dollar casino gambling industry - and how the mob finally lost its stranglehold over it. It is a real-life love story set in America's favorite never-never land, a Mafia tragedy of Shakespearean dimensions, as well as the inside account, in never-before-published detail, of just how the mob lost its control of the neon moneymaking machine it created, in which everything ran like clockwork - except for the little fact that Tony Spilotro was sleeping with his best friend's wife.
