    Subtitled "Fighting the Las Vegas Mob by the Numbers". Las Vegas, 1970's - a golden age of Glitter Gulch corruption. Dennis Gomes, the youngest division chief in Gaming Control Board history whipped a ragtag group of auditors into hardened, gun-slinging investigators and shattered clichթs about milquetoast accountant cops. Coming within a hair's breadth of death more than once, Gomes capped off his tenure with the famous bust of the Stardust skim, portrayed in the book and movie "Casino". In 'Hit Me!', there's action to fill a dozen Scorsese films: Midnight raids, heart-rending showgirl romances and deadly double-crosses. And the cast of characters reads like a roll call of gangster lore. But no matter how much evidence Gomes uncovered, or how many witnesses and informants were bloodied, Gomes was swept aside by a political system that was dirty to its core. It took nearly three decades, but in 2007, Gomes made a date with destiny at The Family Secrets Trial - the justice system finally taking out a "hit" on the mob. In a Chicago courtroom on July 30, 2007, Gomes, a key prosecutorial witness finally settled all scores. Indexed 267 Pgs. 2013 Hardcover
