Las Vegas, NV, June 11, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Frank Cullotta, the Chicago criminal, Las Vegas mobster and Government witness breaks his silence and speaks first with Las Vegas podcasters Mark Anthony and Sazzy on http://www.TheVegastourist.com podcast.
With the release of his biography
"Cullotta: The Life of a Chicago Criminal, Las Vegas Mobster and Government Witness," Frank Cullotta talks with a certain nonchalance. That's simply the way he lived. He is very straight and very open about his life of crime, his career as one of the top thugs in Las Vegas as made man Tony Spilotro’s right hand, and life after turning Government witness.
Along with Frank, Mark and Sazzy talk with the other half of an unusual friendship: his co-author, the man who first debriefed Cullotta for the FBI and was his contact while in hiding, retired FBI agent Dennis Arnoldy.
In the 1995 movie Casino, (in which Cullotta played himself in one of the scenes) Frank was hired as technical director, and helped tell part of the story. Now Frank Cullotta sits down and tells Mark Anthony and Sazzy the rest of the story.

From burglary to armed robbery and murder, infamous bad guy Frank Cullotta not only did it all, in Cullotta he admits to it—and in graphic detail.
This no-holds-barred biography chronicles the life of a career criminal who started out as a thug on the streets of Chicago and became a trusted lieutenant in Tony Spilotro's gang of organized lawbreakers in Las Vegas.
Cullotta’s was a world of high-profile heists, street muscle, and information—lots of it—about many of the FBI’s most wanted. In the end, that information was his ticket out of crime, as he turned government witness and became one of a handful of mob insiders to enter the Witness Protection Program.
“Frank Cullotta is the real thing,” says Nick Pileggi in the book’s Foreword, and in these pages, Cullotta sets the record straight on life, and death, in mobbed-up Las Vegas.
