The Man Who Invented Las Vegas

This book corrects a popular misconception and explains that it was W.R. Billy Wilkerson Jr., founder, and publisher of The Hollywood Reporter, and not Benjamin Bugsy Siegel who created the Vegas Strip. This compelling, richly-researched book was written by Billy’s son, W.R. Wilkerson III, and it finally uncovers the secrets behind the building of the Flamingo Hotel and the death of Bugsy Siegel.
