His saga spans four decades - years in which a terrified Jewish peasant boy learned the art of murder-for-survival in the war torn firlds of Brest-Litovsky. Years in which the bootleg industry ruled the country with rotgut and blod. Years in which the Vegas casino owners played a deadly game for ultimate control. Years in which Hargett inherited the syndicate of Nathan Beckstein...ordered the castration of Trigger Joe Magiunto...raised a daughter...attended his own funeral. Years in which he slived a story splattered in blood.
