Book was left on the Brisbane Palace Backpackers BC bookshelf and has been registered for tracking purposes.

Blurb from back of the book:

"Within the interconnecting worlds of bigtime gambling, publishing and the film industry, the power of corruption and the corruption of power are nowhere better explored. From New York to La Vegas, Merlyn and his brother Artie obey their own ode o honour in the ferment of contemporary America, where law and organised crime are one and the same ..."

Journal Entry 2 by BookCemetery on Wednesday, November 2, 2005
Yet another victim of the pandemic of "loosepageitis" that is sweeping the bookworld on wings of villainy. The remnants of this poor depleted Reading Companion arrived at the Book Cemetery today (Wednesday 02 November 2005) amid much sadness and chagrin on the part of the Resurrection Team who gave a unanimous thumbs down to any attempt to try and save the book. Cremation was ordered and carried out post haste, followed by a very moving Memorial Service held in the Chapel of Sighs. The Book Cemetery Choir gave a most moving rendition of "Fools Rush In" in dirge time. The Memory of our poor friend was released into the ether down by the Pool of Reflection while the Book Cemetery Band played "What Kind of Fool Am I" and the Facility Flags were lowered to half mast.

Chief Mourner was aleonblue, who had to be supported throughout the entire event, her distress at not backing the winner of yesterday's Melbourne Cup evident to all, especially the Cemetery Bookkeeper, who had to threaten legal action with regard to the account (I mean, who accepts losing TAB tickets nowadays?). An "arrangement" was made concerning the "we will if you don't" part of the discussion. The Management and Staff of the Book Cemetery extend sincere condolences to all those who, like aleonblue, are losers following yesterday's activities to the South of here. We, as members of the Working Horse Association, were privvy to certain informations concering certain things. We SHALL be having a vacation this year, and Provence is looking pretty damn good.
