I did not know much about Liston's career before I read this book. I feel that through this book I got to know Liston as a person. A very interesting man not afraid to take on some pretty scary jobs in Las Vegas and in the drug world. Unfortunately that life can lead to dire consequences. His life in LV was interesting and dangerous.
