Retired agent Dan DeSimone reviews "Operation Thin Crust," a long-term undercover operation (UCO) conducted in 1998. He played the undercover role of the manager of an escort service, covertly set up by the FBI to gather evidence of attempts by associates of the New York Gambino crime family to enter the lucrative Las Vegas escort industry, also known as the outcall industry. Dan and the case agent had to act quickly when, while monitoring electronically intercepted conversations, they learned that three mob enforcers were planning to kidnap, torture and maybe even kill competitors. Dan DeSimone served in the FBI for 23 years.
