I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1994, after a 20-year career in investigations and law enforcement in New York State. I began writing my first novel, The Morgue, in 1996. In 2000, I started work on a Las Vegas-based trilogy of mystery/thrillers. Killer In Pair-A-Dice was followed by One—Armed Bandit. The third book, Vegas Vixen, was published in November 2008.
In 2001 I turned my attention to non-fiction, and began writing Policing Las Vegas – A History of Law Enforcement in Southern Nevada. This book follows the evolution of law enforcement in Las Vegas and Clark County, from the establishment of Las Vegas in 1905 thru 2005. It was released in April 2005 through Huntington Press.
My second non-fiction, The Battle for Las Vegas – The Law vs. the Mob, is the story of the Tony Spilotro era in Las Vegas, and was released through Huntington Press in 2006. CULLOTTA – The Life of a Chicago Criminal, Las Vegas Mobster, and Government Witness was published by Huntington Press in 2007. My most recent Mob book is Surviving The Mob - A Street Soldier's Life Inside The Gambino Crime Family, and was published by Huntington Press in January 2011.
In October 2012, House Party Tonight, the story of legendary saxophonist Don Hill, was published by Houdini Media. That book was followed three months later by Rogue Town, the true story of crime and corruption in Stamford, Connecticut, also by Houdini Media.
I am co-host of the popular Blog Talk Radio show Crime Wire, and serve as a consultant to the Vegas Mob Tour. I recently opened BEAR Media Consultants, which helps match true crime movie and documentary producers, writers and event coordinators, with potential technical consultants and speakers for their projects or events.
