Publisher's Summary

From the blockbuster author of The Godfather comes this bold international best-seller about the feverish world of a big-time gambler.
Merlyn and his brother, Artie, obey their own code of honor in the ferment of contemporary America, where law and organized crime are one and the same.
Set within America's golden triangle of corruption and excess—New York, Hollywood, Las Vegas—the novel plunges into the glittering and ruthless worlds of gambling, publishing, and the film industry, where greed, lust, and violence hold sway. As high rollers, hustlers, and scheming manipulators use power, sex, and betrayal to win, the strongest survive—but fools die.

Great story, lousy audio

This story is really fun. The audio is perhaps the poorest effort from audible.com.

Puzo is a master of the tale and Tabori is the cream voice that transports us.

This tomb is a great proof and repudiation of Puzo as only a mafia writer. He is a writer's writer, a critic's writer, a film maker's writer, a gambler's writer, a lover's gossip and such a truthful liar. Once you get into the thick of this one you're indebted throughout. All the things you're busy with in life will be colored by the magic of this book; by its magician, by the brandishing of Puzo's wry wit and honesty. And Tabori pours it all like such honey into your ears. You're hooked like a fool fish on a buttered line. Everything is felt, because nothing should be missed. We all live as such glorious fools and Fools Die.
