[previous owner's signature at upper corner of front pastedown, otherwise a tight copy with no discernible wear; jacket has just the teensiest bit of wear at a couple of corners]. A woman in her late fifties, finding in difficult circumstances after a lifetime of misfortunes, recalls "her fabulous -- and not so fabulous -- glamorous life with 'the boys,' the big shot racketeers of 1940's Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Jamaica, Cuba and Florida [including' Ben [Bugsy] Siegel, Meyer Lansky, Johnny Reata and others." Errol Flynn pops up as a character, too.
