Bugsy Siegel built Las Vegas, but it was Tony "The Ant" Spilotro who ran the show. Now William F.

As incredible as any work of fiction -- but it's all fact!

The most decorated agent in the FBI's history continues his account of war against the Chicago mob. With all the personal detail he brought to War of the Godfathers and Roemer: Man Against the Mob, the man who played hardball with the most celebrated and feared criminal kingpins paints a bloody portrait of the rise and fall of Tony Spilotro.

    a good reference

    This book fills in all the details of the Spilotro saga, including lots of info not found in the book Casino. However, Roemer isn't much of a writer and his prose is pretty awful. The information is solid and this is a great reference work for mob buffs, but Roemer's incessant self~praise and leaden prose is pretty difficult to work one's way through. He could have benefited greatly from a ghostwriter, or at least a better editor. Ivan Rorick

    Very interesting!

    The book is hard to put down. It really is shocking and amazing when you get a real feel and idea of just how brutal the mob was.

    Great Mob book!

    Very informative on topics that have not been presented in any other book documenting the mob's activity.
