Casino Chronicle is one late-blooming whistleblower's scathing account that sends a message of caution to the underhanded machinations of the gambling industry. Aside from the allegations against this casino, the author of this novel takes it a step further with actual evidence to strengthen his argument.
This book will leave you speechless many times over by the egregious circumstances the man at the center of this memoir found himself in with a company he should have been able to trust. But the best part about this book is it is not just a story of woes detailed by a person who was wronged by his own employer, but rather a cautionary tale for anyone who might find themselves in a similar situation in the future.
The US Review of Books:
The puzzling question is why this case, with documented evidence to prove its merit, has neither shown up in court nor in the local media. Batieufaye explains his reluctance to seek a lawyer, which is the same reason he refused to get notary validation for his submissions.
His written submissions were well-formulated and business-like. Whenever passion takes over, word choices seem adapted from current media.
As an ingenious and thoughtful man who is committed to his job, Batieufaye wanted his employer to prosper in a manner benefitting the company and its employees. An insight into the life of a dedicated yet “unrecognized and unappreciated” worker is portrayed throughout the book; I could feel his disappointment and sadness. With an imaginative writing style and creative analogies, the book unveils the self-serving roots and wolfish nature of one of “the world’s largest casinos from the 1990s to 2013.”
