War of the godfathers : the bloody confrontation between the Chicago and New York families for the control of Las Vegas by William F Roemer( Book )
8 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Traditionally, territory west of the Mississippi was controlled by the Chicago Mafia family; territory east of the Mississippi by the New York families. In the late seventies, the Mob's ruling commission agreed that New York would have exclusive control of Atlantic City in exchange for hands-off of Chicago's interests in Vegas. The agreement proved to be short-lived when Atlantic City turned out to be a relative bust compared to the enormous take from the Vegas boom of the eighties. In this book, 30-year FBI crimefighter Bill Roemer tells how two underworld legends--New York godfather Joe Bonnano and Chicago godfather Tony Accardo--waged an all-out war for the huge source of illicit profits that is Las Vegas.--From publisher description
