Finally ...the truth of Harry and Nevada - and their reach. Was handed the book at an event or I wouldn't have known about it. Yep, it's unpolished and reads a bit rough but it's laid out clearly and has solid documentation. And Reid's quotes from his own book haunt in light of 'the rest of the story'. Watch 'em try to bury this. The author must be an insider because it's true - and insider Nevadans know it's true. It's time someone blew the whistle for the rest of us to know it too. Thanks Mr. Brown, whoever you are.

Daxton Brown has taken on an ambitious project. His book is a great idea, but could have been executed better. Definitely needs an editor. However, editing books takes a lot of work, and since this book is self-published, Daxton did not have the luxury of an editor. There is a lot of good information in this book, but it is a slightly difficult read, given its wordiness and lack of organization. Daxton is prone to rhetorical flourish, which reflects his love of the written word. I hope he will at some point rewrite this book, to clean up the prose so that the book is easier for readers to understand and follow. However, I will re-read this book carefully to make sure I understand everything. Daxton has potential and I would like to read more of him. Given the good information, but slightly disordganized writing style, I would rate this book a C. What could have been a searing indictment of Harry Reid comes across as a partisan hit. But there is substance behind the rhetoric, however. Give this book a chance.

If you thought the movie Casino was just entertainment, you'll soon realize that it was basically a documentary after reading this book. With sources ranging from Harry Reid's own autobiography, where he brags of being schooled and pampered by mafia pimps and union thugs, to murderous gangsters living in exile in Brazil, Daxton Brown peels back the lily white facade of the rot and filth that is the daily modus operandi of corruption at its finest.

From mafia political-buying, electioneering, Gaming Commissioner appointment of Harry in the 70's, faked assassination attempt against him, and the wave of Mafia attorneys that took over their former clients' Vegas empire, this work will leave you with an inner look into the dirty Nevada organized crime syndicates' evolution, with current cases of massive corruption fully exposed, including the waste management scams, and derailing of the bullet train project that would have connected Las Vegas to Anaheim (Disneyland), California.

"Mr. Cleanface", as his Mafia handlers called him, will be viewed in an entirely different light after pouring through the pages of this unique expose.

I have lived in Las Vegas for almost fifty years and this book was a very good summary of Harry Reid's past dealings. I read newspaper accounts of everything in the book throughout my years in Las Vegas and it was good to see everything so well documented. I only wish the book had come out a year sooner.

Finally a book that brings to light all of the underhanded dealings orchestrated by Harry Reid and his Las Vegas pals. Whether you agree with the Mormon approach in Las Vegas or not, Harry certainly goes over the line. The amazing part is that he still get such warm welcomes from the Mormon church when in reality he does not in truth live his religion.
