Publisher's Summary

Tenacity chronicles the evolution of entrepreneur Ron Coury, a major business figure in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the surrounding western states. 

As Coury, a former US Marine, climbed the ladder toward his success, he faced a barrage of constraints including political and police corruption, bribery, coercion, and even death threats. Along the way, he also had a few offers to settle matters discreetly, with a few well-placed bullets. His choices would have life altering consequences for many. 

How does one retain a sense of ethics amidst an atmosphere so rife with corruption? Coury details the struggles he faced and the losses he endured in this eye-opening look behind the curtain of business during the "Good Ol' Boy" days of Southern Nevada.

Audiobook read by Michael Madsen.
