   schema:description ""The catacombs of ancient Rome served as houses of worship for Christians. When surveyed in the early 1800s, the sewers of Paris yielded gold, jewels and relics of the revolution. And thousands of people lived in the subway and train tunnels of New York City in the 1980s and '90s. What secrets do the Las Vegas storm drains keep? What discoveries wait in the dark? What's beneath the neon? Armed with a flashlight, a tape recorder and an expandable baton for protection, Las Vegas writer and editor Matthew O'Brien sought to answer these questions. Beneath the Neon: Life and Death in the Tunnels of Las Vegas chronicles O'Brien's adventures in this uncharted underworld. He follows the footsteps of a psycho killer. He two-steps under the MGM Grand at three in the morning. He chases the ghosts of Benny Binion, Bugsy Siegel, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, and Howard Hughes. He learns how to make meth, that art is most beautiful where it's least expected, and that there are no pots of gold under the neon rainbow."--Publisher's website."@en ;
