The Bookstore of Anthony Curtis' Las Vegas Advisor



From burglary to armed robbery and murder, infamous bad guy Frank Cullotta not only did it all, in Cullotta he admits to it—and in graphic detail.

“Frank Cullotta is the real thing,” says Nicholas Pileggi (Casino) in the book’s Foreword. This no-holds-barred biography chronicles the life of a career criminal who started out as a thug on the streets of Chicago and became a trusted lieutenant in Tony Spilotro’s gang of organized lawbreakers in Las Vegas. Cullotta’s was a world of high-profile heists, street muscle, and information—lots of it—about many of the FBI’s most wanted. In the end, that information was his ticket out of crime, as he turned government witness and became one of a handful of mob insiders to enter the Witness Protection Program. Some of that information has since been responsible for solving a decades-old cold case double-homicide.

"For those who can stomach it, Cullotta: The Life of a Chicago Criminal, Las Vegas Mobster and Government Witness is a must. Few crime authors have such intimate access to key figures such as Cullotta, so savour Griffin’s book while you can: Other than meeting the man himself, there’s really no other way to gain such intimate knowledge of one of Vegas’ most dangerous and interesting criminals." —

“Griffin’s book is pretty hard to put down.”
Las Vegas Life

“…Griffin’s flat, unemotional yet potent writing makes the bloodletting, murders and mayhem chilling and unnerving throughout.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“Cullotta is a MUST READ if you like true crime or Las Vegas history”
