Are you going to write my story of my life, the truth? Some things they sound bad, they look bad, they were bad. You can put it in there but the truth not fiction. I don’t want any fiction.

Part crime expose’ that lays bare the underworld of one of America’s most notorious couples: Joseph and Sally Conforte, the king and queen of vice and owners of the world-famous Mustang Ranch brothel, near Reno, Nevada. And part biography that’s gritty and at times raunchy, full of twisted love and betrayal.
MR. MADAME depicts the life of Joseph Conforte, starting in November 1974 at age 47 with his dream of becoming a casino mogul and the social acceptance that follows, and ending in January 1981 with his becoming a fugitive of U.S. justice and disgrace, leading to a new chapter in his long running game with the Feds.
Based on author’s interviews of eyewitnesses, visiting locations, and finding hidden documents, court and police records, FBI records, and much more. Many details introduced have never been printed.
