About the Book

Eddie Trascher was a gentleman gangster, but he never wanted to be part of the mob. For 50 years, from the pre-Castro Havana casinos to Los Angeles, Trascher stole from mob-owned casinos, scammed gangsters, and was one of the top bookies in the country. He capped his career as a confidential informant for Florida law enforcement and was the source for getting inside the Trafficante Mafia family. Balls is written by Ken Sanz and Scott Deitche. Sanz is a former Florida Department of Law enforcement special agent, and was Eddie’s handler and friend for more than twenty years.
