The book is about the author's childhood obsession with Frank Sinatra, how he formed his own Rat Pack in High School, picked up and saved the singer's cigarette butt while seeing him perform in the company of mobsters, to later developing a professional relationship with him as a journalist, which led to Sinatra giving the author what turned out to be the last formal interview he ever gave for publication. The YouTube audio link to that interview is included in the book.
