Overview

It's 1961 and Las Vegas is still the place to be. Eddie Gianelli, pit boss at the Sands Casino, now considers the Rat Pack his friends. And this time, his friend Frank Sinatra wants him to help Sammy. Someone has an embarrassing photo of Sammy and wants twenty-five grand for it. All Eddie has to do is make the pay-off and collect the photo. Easy, right? But at the rendezvous, in place of a blackmailer, Eddie finds a dead body greeting him instead. Pretty soon Eddie and New York torpedo Jerry Epstein are up to their elbows in bodies. There's a double-cross going on. Could the presence of the Secret Service mean that JFK is somehow involved?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

After rescuing Dean Martin in Everybody Kills Somebody Sometime(2006) and Frank Sinatra in Luck Be a Lady, Don't Die(2007), Vegas pit boss Eddie Gianelli and New York gunman Jerry Epstein reunite to save Sammy Davis Jr. in Randisi's breezy third Rat Pack mystery, set in the gambling hubs of Nevada (Tahoe, Reno, Vegas) in 1961. Davis, anxious to recover an embarrassing photo stolen from his home, hires Eddie to handle the exchange. When the transfer produces only a corpse, Eddie and Jerry end up in a lethal high stakes game with blackmailers, hit men, cops, federal agents and politicians-possibly including the newly installed president, JFK. Randisi shows both respect and affection for his historical characters as he highlights the antics of the Rat Park, who made the burgeoning gambling and entertainment empires of Nevada their playground. No doubt the Rat Pack could have used a real Eddie G. (Dec.)
