Or check out the Audible.com version of Vegas and the Mob
in its Audible Audio Edition, Unabridged!
Here's the set-up:
The Mob didn't take "no" for an answer, so when "Bugsy" Siegel and Moe Sedway grabbed a hold of a few casino bosses and told 'em they were now partners in their Las Vegas casinos, the old bosses glumly agreed. Within five years Las Vegas was the Mob's greatest venture and most spectacular success, and through 40 years of frenzy, murder, deceit, scams, and skimming, the FBI listened on phone taps and did virtually nothing to stop the fun. This book brings out the truth about the Mob's control of the casinos in Vegas like you've never heard it before, from start to finish.Early on, two of the nation's most powerful, dirty, and murderous crime family bosses went to prison in the 1930's: Al Capone, and Lucky Luciano. Frank Nitti took over the Chicago Outfit, while Frank Costello ran things for the Luciano Family. Both men were influenced by their bosses from prison, and both sent enough gangsters into the streets to influence loan sharking, extortion, union control, and drug sales.Bugsy Siegel worked for both groups, handling a string of murders and opening up gaming on the west coast, and that included Las Vegas, an oasis of sin in the middle of the desert - and it was legal. Most of it. The FBI watched as the Mob took control of casino after casino, killed off the competition, and stole enough money to bribe their way to respectability back home.By the 1950's, nearly every major crime family had a stake in a Las Vegas casino. Some did better than others. Casino owners watched-over their profits while competing crime families eyed each other's success like jealous lovers. Murder often followed.

    I am looking for the book by Upton Sinclair about the history of the Beef industry in Chicago. I am not sure of the title, and was wondering if you can help me find it. Thank you for yourhelp.

    Why is this piece of racial slander http://www.amazon.com/The-Synagogue-Satan-Uncensored-ebook/dp/B007UFOJ5A/%3Ftag%3dwwmtool1-20 on your website at all?

    • Kindle Nation on April 22, 2012 at 5:58 pm

      Our search tools can be used to call up any applicable book on Amazon’s website, and we exercise no censorship over Amazon’s website. We certainly would never promote such a book.

      Have you ever heard the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover?” Have you read this book? It isn’t at all a piece of ‘racial slander’, as you call it. It’s actually a pretty good book, and one of the issues covered in the book is narrow minded people.
