From 1937 Ireland to petty theft as a teenager in London, Sydney Gottfried grew into a high-life of international double-dealing. Owner of a casino and nightclub, his many deals involve fake scotch, violent Soho hookers, counterfeit money, mobsters, diamonds, Swiss banks and scams against the American public. Gottfried is resolutely crooked and his scams-some explained in detail-are at times darkly humorous. Yet the vicious gravitas of his lifestyle draws him tragically, inevitably, to bloody murder.
