‘Whale hunter’ Steve Cyr: Still in search of Las Vegas’ biggest bettors

sun_masthead2Robin Leach explores the current lifestyle of “whale hunter” Steve Cyr and Whale Hunt in the Desert written by Huntington Press author Deke Castleman.

Writer Deke Castleman, who wrote seven editions of Compass Las Vegas from 1991 to 2003 and six editions of Nevada Handbook from 1988 to 1999, is the author of the third edition of “Whale Hunt in the Desert: Secrets of a Vegas Superhost” just published by Huntington Press and its LasVegasAdvisor.com.
