              In an age of rampant corruption and violence, Richard Bo Dietl was the strongest cop on New York's meanest streets -- and he did things his way, no holds barred. In fifteen years he made over 1,400 felony arrests compared to the average cop's career total of 180. But after 75 med...als and awards, and countless brushes with death, he broke the city's most notorious case -- the Harlem convent rape -- and faced a blue wall of police department resentments and politics. He knew his time was coming to an end. The Bo Dietl Story From his rookie days to the dangerous work on the police decoy unit to his moonlighting as a bodyguard for Arab sheiks, this is the true story of the maverick cop who made the busts, the headlines and the controversies. Now Bo Dietl tells what it's really like inside the raw and deadly world of a big-city cop -- and how one man became a legend from the station house to the streets.

              Casino: Love and Honor in Las Vegas (EPUB ebook)

              By Pileggi, Nicholas

              The true story behind the Martin Scorsese film: A "riveting ... account of how organized crime looted the casinos they controlled" (Kirkus Reviews). Focusing on Chicago bookie Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal and his partner, Anthony Spilotro, and drawing on extensive, in-depth interviews..., the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Mafia classic Wiseguy-basis for the film Goodfellas-Nicholas Pileggi reveals how the pair worked together to oversee Las Vegas casino operations for the mob. He unearths how Teamster pension funds were used to take control of the Stardust and Tropicana and how Spilotro simultaneously ran a crew of jewel thieves nicknamed the "Hole in the Wall Gang." For years, these gangsters kept a stranglehold on Sin City's brightly lit nightspots, skimming millions in cash for their bosses. But the elaborate scheme began to crumble when Rosenthal's disproportionate ambitions drove him to make mistakes. Spilotro made an error of his own, falling for his partner's wife, a troubled showgirl named Geri. It would all lead to betrayal, a wide-ranging FBI investigation, multiple convictions, and the end of the Mafia's longstanding grip on the multibillion-dollar gaming oasis in the midst of the Nevada desert. Casino is a journey into 1970s Las Vegas and a riveting nonfiction account of the world portrayed in the Martin Scorsese film of the same name, starring Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone. A story of adultery, murder, infighting, and revenge, this "fascinating true-crime Mob history" is a high-stakes page-turner (Booklist).
