Mobster Takes Cover As Summerlin Rabbi In New Novel

Writer Tod Goldberg lived in Summerlin for several years near the turn of the century. So he turned it into the setting of his new novel about a gangster in hiding, who finds himself disguised as a rabbi in suburban Las Vegas.

So can a cold-blooded killer convince people he is a spiritual man? And will the experience change his nature? Goldberg tackles all these questions in a new novel released earlier this month.
