Summary:

Immediately gripping and thoroughly harrowing, Storming Las Vegas tells the story of a remarkable true-life crime spree-a story that was previously squashed so as not to disturb tourism, in the ultimate proof of "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."On September 20, 1998, a Cuban-born former Red Army lieutenant named Jose Vigoa launched a series of raids on the Las Vegas Strip. During a sixteen-month spree, Vigoa hit five world-class hotels, three armored cars, and one department store. The casinos were: the MGM; the Desert Inn; the New York, New York; the Mandalay Bay and the Bellagio.Lieutenant John Alamshaw, a twenty-three-year-old veteran in charge of robbery detectives, was ordered to stop the robberies at all costs. He knew he was up against a mastermind. What he didn't know was that he was running out of time.

"This debut is a must for true-crime enthusiasts."-Publishers Weekly

    I almost gave up on this book in the first 5 minutes. I wasn't too interested in another shoot 'em up type of story even if it was for real. Fortunately, I kept listening and found this story totally engrossing. It was much more than the story of a bad guy (and he was a BAD guy). The history of the Cuban Revolution, the U.S. blockade of Cuba, the Mariel Boat Lift, the Russian invasion of Afghanistan all told from a personal perspective kept me interested and fascinated throughout. Definitely worth the listen!!
