A decent read. I've live in Vegas on and off since 1971 and know most of the places mentioned as well as knowing of many of the players. There is some repetition in the book but a lot of good accurate information. Personally I always thought Ted died of an OD without any foul play involved and that Murphy and Tabish simply saw opportunity knocking when it came to the silver.

Entertaining. I'd lived in Vegas for a couple of years and was interested in its history, especially the time before it became an adult Disneyland. By an odd quirk of fate, I ended up working on the film base on this story.

This was an awesome book. I bought two off Cathy Scott's books when they were on sale and both were great. After you read this one, you should read Murder in Beverly Hills, too because they have a lot of the same people in them.
