When Prohibition ruled America in the 1920's, it produced a lawless decade and lawless citizens. A mob boss like Al Capone became not only the era's leading bootlegger but also a pioneer and kingpin in the union extortion racket, a golden source of easy money and underworld power.

Is it how the skim worked at the Stardust and how millions of dollars walked out the door uncounted? Or what really happened when Frank Sinatra threw a chair at the casino boss of the Sands? Did you ever hear the story about how some very bad Vegas guys rigged the gin rummy games at the Friars Club and took a bunch of famous people to the cleaners?
