Forbidden Fruit: Sin City's Underworld and the Supper Club Inferno

Forbidden Fruit: Sin City's Underworld and the Supper Club Inferno - Peter Bronson

Forbidden Fruit: Sin City's Underworld and the Supper Club Inferno


The Beverly Hills Supper Club was Vegas before Vegas was cool. It was known as the "Showplace of the Nation" before it burned to the ground in 1977, killing at least 165 people-one of the worst fires in U.S. history. But few knew that the Beverly Hills had a violent past of deadly arson beginning in 1936, when it was taken over by the Cleveland mob that ran "Sin City" in Newport, Kentucky-an open city of prostitution, extortion, gambling and violence for decades, until new U.S. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy went to war on the mob in 1961. His first target was Newport. This is the story of a crime empire on the banks of the Ohio River, in the backyard of Ivory clean Cincinnati, and the war to clean it up that led to the assassination of Bobby's brother, President John F. Kennedy. It's a story of mobsters, hookers, murder and dice; dirty cops, crooked politicians and the underworld bosses whose power reached into the FBI, Congress and the White House.Given the context of history, what happened in 1977 and the cover-up that followed were no surprise. Survivors have spent four decades digging to unearth disturbing evidence that the fire was arson-just like the first fire in 1936. Their case is presented here, with the aid of FBI files obtained through an FOIA request, first-hand witness accounts and extensive research that uncovers new evidence and tragic stories of the victims and survivors.Readers say, "The research is beyond impressive " "Thank you for telling this story." "This fills in the blanks that the investigators didn't want the public to know." "Forbidden Fruit adds depth and history to the story that I never knew. I enjoyed every word."
