"The murder case John Glatt recounts in lurid detail is too bizarre
for a work of fiction. . . . a true crime story harking back to the
fabled era when stars like Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra
entertained the crowds at the front of the house while mobsters ran
the show behind the scenes." --"New York Times Book Review "on
