Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're an organized crime buff or a fan of the movie Casino, Strawmen is a must read. Author and retired FBI agent Gary Magnesen reveals the scope and details of the investigations that broke the Mob's control over several Las Vegas casinos and brought mobsters from across the Midwest before the bar of justice. I'm sure you'll find it as enlightening and entertaining as I did.

I have read many books about the Silcian based Mafia. This book is well written, in that the language is direct and without excessive use of adjectives. Probably the result of the author's F.B.I. training. Mr. Magnesen was a witness to the downfall of the Midwest based Mafia. I have read other books containing this history and this book was the most informative. If you want to learn about the most important Mafia investigation in the U.S. read this book.

I know Gary and many of the FBI Agents and mob characters in the book. I really like this book and it is a must read for anyone interested in learning the truth about the mob. Gary Magnesen has created an FBI Agents view of the mob and the effort it took to help eradicate this arcane society
