Death in the Desert: The Ted Binion Homicide Case

Multi-millionaire Ted Binion, son and heir to the estate of cowboy gangster and gambler Benny Binion who helped mold Las Vegas, was found dead in his million-dollar home on September 17, 1998. Binion's girlfriend, a one-time exotic dancer, and her lover, Rick Tabish, a contractor from Missoula, Montana, each were convicted, then, in a second trial, acquitted of killing Binion by forcing him to swallow a mixture of black tar heroin and the sedative Xanax.

Publisher's Summary

Multi-millionaire Ted Binion, son and heir to the estate of cowboy gangster and gambler Benny Binion who helped mold Las Vegas, was found dead in his million-dollar home on September 17, 1998. Binion's girlfriend, a one-time exotic dancer, and her lover, Rick Tabish, a contractor from Missoula, Montana, each were convicted, then, in a second trial, acquitted of killing Binion by forcing him to swallow a mixture of black tar heroin and the sedative Xanax.

Death in the Desert: The Ted Binion Homicide Case takes you inside this incredible case surrounded by drugs, gambling, mobsters, and a $14 million silver stash. It explores whether it was murder, as the prosecution contended, or an accidental overdose, as the defense claimed. The book includes never-before-seen historical photos of the Binion family.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story may be compelling if read by someone else

    Little history tidbits were certainly interesting, but the narration made them less so

    Story
    "Sounds like a student reading a book report"

    I couldn't listen to this book. I made it through one disk and stopped. The reader sounds like an amatuer. He faithfully maintains his monotone and low energy narrative.
    I listen to a lot of books but this is poorly done.
    I have no comment on the story, it may be fine for all I know.
