About The Book

In The Eighties, Las Vegas was an amazing, glitzy, non-stop human circus fueled by booze, gambling, drugs and sex. This amazing scene is the lush backdrop for the story of an eighteen-year old girl walking into a den of thieves with eyes wide open, but oblivious to it all. The story begins with a counterfeiter in Chicago and chronicles his rise to Las Vegas high roller. In his thirties, he is busted for counterfeiting by the first African-American Secret Service agent, Abraham Bolden, appointed to the White House detail by JFK himself. The twisted tale of their connection is chronicled along with the gangster’s rise to major earner for the Chicago Outfit. When the gangster’s son meets the wide-eyed eighteen-year old girl, the story really begins.

Her name is Cyn. In 1984 she arrived in Sin City and walked directly into a web of deception where nothing was as it seemed and no one was who they said they were. In this shadowy world, the barely-legal sex industry was a major source of cash business for the Chicago bosses. Mafia Madame tells the story of the Spilotro’s killers and the bloody trail of mayhem that occurred in the power vacuum left by their death. Vegas was up for grabs and Chicago, Detroit and New York families were locked in a territorial struggle to stake their claim in the Gold Rush that was Eighties Vegas. Cyn and her New York Mafia business rival are locked in a struggle to control the lucrative Vegas sex industry when Cyn comes up with a brilliant plan. Her series of dangerous and bold choices lead to a rich and surprising odyssey of love, family and loyalty.
