Editorial Reviews

Norm Clarke
“Stu Michaels is one of those gifted storytellers–a Las Vegas character by way of Brooklyn-who went from a street-smart detective to the upper tier of Sin City’s security ranks. He reveals it all in chapter after chapter of celebrity encounters, thanks to a disarming gift for gab.” — Norm Clarke, Las Vegas Review-Journal Celebrity columnist and author, Vegas Confidential: Sinsational Celebrity Tales
