My friend Adam Higginbotham writes amazing narrative non-fiction. This story about a bomb plot in a Lake Tahoe casino from the early 1980's would make a fascinating 5-6 part mini series. But by time the public could read the story, Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips had already optioned the material for development. Us little guys can't compete with folks like Cooper and Phillips.
Here's the story at The Atavist.
Update January 2018: Warner Brothers/Phillips/Cooper let the option lapse. The project is available again.
