Críticas:

Advance praise for Storming Las Vegas
"[A] lurid, foot-to-the-floor account of the life and career of [a] master criminal. [Huddy] cranks up the volume early in this neon-saturated chronicle of violence and vice in Sin City. Bullets spray, glass shatters, metal pings...Writing in the nail-biting present tense, Mr. Huddy reconstructs Mr. Vigoa's crime spree minute by minute." -- "The New York Times"
"Like a real-life Danny Ocean, Cuban-born gangster Jose Vigoa ransacked Sin City's strip during a two-year crime spree in the late '90s...Huddy draws surprising sympathy for the meticulous crime boss...a thought-provoking, demented Horatio Alger story." -- "Entertainment Weekly"
"In Cuban-born Jose Manuel Vigoa Perez and his two-year Las Vegas crime rampage, John Huddy found the perfect story for his first book...[Huddy possesses] the perfect blend of skills and experience to tell the story." -- "The Seattle Times"
"An elaborate true-crime account that achieves standard-bearer status in the genre...[A] captivating cat-and-mouse tale of robbery, murder and eventual incarceration. Unlike most true crime tales where the author must reconstruct from secondary sources the likely motivations and executions of particular crimes, Vigoa gave Huddy complete access in the aftermath of his crimes, going so far as to reconstruct maps and plans for each heist..."Storming Las Vegas" unwinds like the perfect crime novel...Meticulously researched, cunningly portrayed and ultimately a stirring look at the hubris and vanity of a criminal and killer who thought he could stay one step ahead at all times, "Storming Las Vegas "is a major work of crime and detection." -- "Las Vegas City Life"
"Aclassic Vegas brawl: a murderous Soviet-trained mercenary with heavy weapons versus an American cop with smarts and style. A bloody winner-takes-all shootout for control of the Strip. John Huddy insures that this tumultuous Vegas story doesn't stay there."
-Van Gordon Sauter, former president of CBS News, CBS Sports, and Fox News

Reseña del editor:

On September 20, 1998, Jose Vigoa, a child of Fidel Castro’s revolution, launched what would be the most audacious and ruthless series of high-profile casino and armored car robberies that Las Vegas had ever seen. In a brazen sixteen-month reign of terror, he and his crew would hit the crème de la crème of Vegas hotels: the MGM, the Desert Inn, the New York—New York, the Mandalay Bay, and the Bellagio. The robberies were well planned and executed, and the police–“the stupids,” as Vigoa contemptuously referred to them–were all but helpless to stop them. But Lt. John Alamshaw, the twenty-three-year veteran in charge of robbery detectives, was not giving up so easily. For him, Vigoa’s rampage was a personal affront. And he would do whatever it took, even risk his badge, to bring Vigoa down.
