"Blood Aces," The Story Of Benny Binion
There is definitely some kind of spiritual connection between Texas and Las Vegas. And that could be traced back to one particular murderous crook named Benny Binion. There’s a statue of Binion today in Vegas with him high on a horse with his cowboy hat tilted in a cocky fashion.
Doug Swanson has written the incredible story of this gamble cowboy - "Blood Aces: The Wild Ride of Benny Binion," the slam-bang thrill ride of a biography by Doug Swanson of the Dallas Morning News.
