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.

I think theres a good story here , but the reading is DRY and monatone - it.s very to stay listening
Hire a professional reader
The story may be compelling if read by someone else
Little history tidbits were certainly interesting, but the narration made them less so
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.
