Summary Key players in the duo's inner circle unravel the untold story of how two youngsters founded a friendship, a franchise, and a tempestuous on-and-off love affair that would last a lifetime. From their humble beginnings in war-torn Germany, Tiger Kings Siegfried & Roy roared into Las Vegas and tamed Sin City like no act before them. Their illusions broke box-office records. In just one decade at The Mirage, their magical extravaganza, featuring rare white tigers, lions and elephants, grossed an astounding half a billion dollars. Then, in one tragic instant, their world came crashing down: on October 3, 2003, Roy Horn was attacked onstage by his 600-pound white tiger, Montecore. After he literally "died" on the operating table, Roy fought for survival as partner Siegfried watched and prayed. Suddenly, the show was over--or was it?--From publisher description.
