 The factual assertions in the Prologue are made by me, not by Riley or Cornelius, and are the results of my own review of non-fiction accounts. Thus, the descriptions given in the Prologue about the deaths of Frankie Yale, Alfred Loewenstein and Arnold Rothstein are historically accurate, according to sources that will be listed here as Suggested Reading. I find the mysterious meeting between Loewenstein and Rothstein to be especially intriguing.
