This book, Frank Goes to Vegas, will tell the story of Frank Balistrieri and his connection with the Vegas Skim. This will be a continuation of the story that we begun in The Life and Times of Frank Balistrieri: The Last, Most Powerful Godfather of Milwaukee by myself (Wayne Clingman) and Zack Long. While that book (and the movie Casino [1995]) make for a great story, there is still so much more to tell about the Vegas Skim.

With Frank Goes to Vegas, we will be doing far more research. This will come both through documents obtained by using The Freedom of Information Act, as well as interviews with individuals in the know. On top of research, the book requires top notch editing to ensure that you, the reader, get the best product possible. All of this, unfortunately, costs money.

All funds raised will be used in the production of the book or the marketing thereof.

The goal is to begin research in February, beginning with getting our hands on copies of the documents in question. In order to make this a reality, we need to have funds and this is why we are asking for your help now.

Be it five dollars, thirty dollars or even just a dollar, it means the world to us to have your support. Even just sharing the link to this campaign fills our hearts with joy.

Donate a dollar to get a shoutout on Twitter and a listing on 

Donate five dollars to receive a sticker, as well as the shoutout listed above.

Donate thirty dollars and receive a Chicago Blood on the Street tee-shirt (sizes S to XXX), as well as the above. Tee-shirt is only available to US addresses.

Thank you for your support, you’re going to love this book.
