Award-winning reporter Sally Denton bestselling presidential biographer Roger Morris here give us an eye-opening portrait of Las Vegas–a city that has become emblematic of America’s future.
Exposing the city’s surprising links to Mormon bankers, the CIA, and several presidents, they reveal a dangerous relationship between politics, business, and crime.
