Product Description

The True Story Behind The Hit Film 'Casino' From An ‘Enforcer’ Who Lived It

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.

”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?”--Dennis N. Griffin, author of SURVIVING THE MOB

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never read a book as fast as I read "The Rise and Fall of a Casino Mobster." 23 May 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was amazing. I loved the first hand accounts of working with Anthony Spilotro. Frank Cullotta is an amazing storyteller, and Dennis Griffin did a fantastic job capturing these stories for print. I cannot recommend this book enough. Just when you think you've reached a shocking moment of Frank's life, you will be hit with the hein when you turn the page.
Forget about the movie and Nicky Santoro. This book explains the real Casino and the Outfit back in the 70's. I can't wait to read the next book by these two gentlemen .

A hitman's perspective--from living the "good life" or getting "whacked" to who killed Marilyn Monroe--all while history is being made.

Frank Cullottas books are very well written, unlike other good writers, he has a first hand knowledge of this subject due to him living it.

Tony the ant spilotro was a interesting character, to have a book written by one who knew and worked for him, is nothing short as valuble for separating fact from fiction.

If you want to know more about the real story behind the Scorsace movie casino, this is the book to read .

If you are interested in the mob, I think you will like. It did show more of the human side of Tony. I thought it was as good or better than Franks first book and repeated very little. It reall got into more details of the vegas crimes.
