Killer In Pair-A-Dice
Killer In Pair-A-Dice is the story of a serial rapist and murderer operating in the Las Vegas Valley. Not far from the glitter of this world famous adult playground, the killer claims his victims. Driven by a deep hatred for women, he begins his reign of terror by seeking out those who remind him of someone from his past. Someone who caused him great pain. As the body count rises, the national news media pick up on the story. Pressure for a speedy apprehension is brought to bear by feminist groups and politicians. But the killer is both daring and intelligent. He leaves little in the way of clues or evidence that will lead to his being identified. His ability to attack in areas teeming with people without being seen leads the press to dub him the Phantom.
Four people, brutally murdered during the robbery of a Las Vegas convenience store. As the police investigation of the killings moves forward, the cops begin to suspect that robbery may not have been the motive at all. It appears more and more likely that the killer was really after one of the victims and the heist was only a diversion. But which one was the real target? Was it the young clerk? How about the Hispanic man who worked at the airport? Or maybe it was the tough guy who was employed as a bouncer at a drug-infested club. Then again, could it be the young woman from New York State who spent her nights playing video poker? Detectives Steve Garneau and Terry Bolton follow the clues they hope will answer their questions and lead them to the identity of the killer dubbed the One-Armed Bandit.
On Christmas Eve 2002, a 67-year-old woman is murdered in her exclusive Las Vegas home. Detective Steve Garneau learns the victim had a colorful past: In the 1960s she ran the best whorehouse in Sin City. Steve's investigation takes him back to the days when the mob ran Vegas --an era rife with corrupt politicians, crooked cops, and Wild West justice.
From burglary to armed robbery and murder, infamous bad guy Frank Cullotta not only did it all, in Cullotta he admits to it -- and in graphic detail. This no-holds-barred biography chronicles the life of a career criminal who started out as a thug on the streets of Chicago and became a trusted lieutenant in Tony Spilotro's gang of organized lawbreakers in Las Vegas. Cullotta's was a world of high-profile heists, street muscle, and information -- lots of it -- about many of the FBI's most wanted. In the end, that information was his ticket out of crime, as he turned government witness and became one of a handful of mob insiders to enter the Witness Protection Program.
