Summary
Before Vegas was big, Hot Springs, Arkansas was home to healing waters, art deco splendor, horse racing, nearly a dozen illegal casinos, countless bank rooms and brothels, and some of the country's most bald-faced criminals. Hill follows three individuals spanning the golden decades of Hot Springs: from the 1930s through the 1960s-- and the lavish casino whose rise and fall would bring them together before blowing them apart. -- adapted from jacket
