about this book

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. And through this gripping indictment of Las Vegas, they uncover a national ethic of exploitation, violence, and greed, and provide a provocative reinterpretation of twentieth-century American history.

“Riveting.... A saga of underworld subculture that...ranges from Cuba to Dallas to Watergate.”–The Wall Street Journal

“One of the most important non-fiction books published in the U.S. in [a] half century.”–Los Angeles Times
