I hate to admit, but I have no recollection of when this interview occurred. It was early in the history of the podcast. My notes from this time period are long gone!
This was recorded right after I had been introduced to him and read his book “The Battle for Las Vegas, The law vs the Mob“. A very detailed, very factual read about Las Vegas during its Mob era. If you love true crime stories or the history of Las Vegas, this is your book!
One of his sources for the book was a man who knew the Vegas mob very well. In fact, Denny was helping to write his life story at the time. Las Vegas mobster Frank Cullotta
Denny was the second person we ever interviewed on the podcast and was a great man to have on. This was a fun interview because it was so free-flowing. Listening to how he became a writer than deciding to write about the Vegas Mob and then to meet the men involved in the Vegas mob scene. He worked with both the law enforcement side and getting the actual mobster’s point of view!
He became a very good friend to The Vegas Tourist.
