From the cover: “Five foot six, plump, and balding, Danny Lehman is both unprepossessing and ordinary; a dealer in coins and foreign exchange, who is not above making a shady transaction now and then. For when it comes to business Danny is very sharp, and in 1964, when the American economy is beginning to feel the shock waves of the Vietnam War and investors are seeking a safe haven for their money, Danny makes a lucrative move into silver bullion. Then, through distinctly unorthodox channels, he acquires a casino on the edge of bankruptcy and is fired with an ambition to beat the big boys at their own game. His dream: to create the most luxurious, most successful, and outwardly most respectable casino Las Vegas has ever seen, and to restore Atlantic City to its former glory as the world’s leading entertainment resort.
