    author of THE BLACK DAHLIA FILES, who, in that book, advances a very peculiar conspiracy theory around Bugys Siegel and Elizabeth Short and an LA Police cover-up. Apparently several future writers grew up in close proximity to the mansion owned by Virginia Hill Where Siegel was murdered 5 months after Short's melodramatic demise. I wonder if anybody left alive really knows anything about these crimes that has not been brought to light?

    I think the great Luciano movie by Francesco Rosi goes into this in some detail, though it's been years since I've seen it. As I recall, Lansky and Luciano made a deal to bump off Siegel. I don't know about the police and the coverups. Nobody was too eager talk, I assume.

    That is a movie I have to see again. Volontè was fantastic in it. I also remember a great Italian book on Luciano's career. I am almost sure that I lost the book in some move or other.
