A tale of greed, deception, money, power, and murder occur between two best friends: a mafia enforcer and a casino executive, compete against each other over a gambling empire, and over a fast living and fast loving socialite.
Writer Nicholas Pileggi completed the novel after filming had already begun.
When you love someone, you've gotta trust them. There's no other way. You've got to give them the key to everything that's yours. Otherwise, what's the point? And for a while, I believed, that's the kind of love I had.
When Nicky shoots the lady in the kitchen his arm is placed directly in the gun's aim and is not hit by an exiting slug. However, since the bullets were .22 caliber, and quite likely shorts, they likely never exited the skull.
SPOILER: Nicky is about to finish his narration, he's cut short by the mobsters wanting to whack him.
