Overview

The true crime story behind the film Casino from the mob enforcer who lived it and the author of The Accidental Gangster.


Tony Spilotro was the Mob’s man in Las Vegas. A feared enforcer, the bosses knew Tony would do whatever it took to protect their interests. The “Little Guy” built a criminal empire that was the envy of mobsters across the country, and his childhood pal, Frank Cullotta helped him do it. But Tony’s quest for power and lack of self-control with women cost the Mob its control of Vegas, and Tony paid for it with his life.

From Dennis N. Griffin: “I was a little nervous before my first meeting with former mobster Frank Cullotta. It turned out we had a pleasant conversation that ended with an agreement for me to write his book. As I drove home, I realized I had made a deal with a career thief and killer on a handshake. What was I thinking?”

“Extraordinary insights.”—Nick Pileggi, #1 New York Times–bestselling author and screenwriter of Casino
