The LA nightclub world is often described as a “dirty, dirty business,” with its top brass adept at navigating the murky waters of power, money, and fame.

The late 1990s witnessed scandalous events that shook Hollywood’s high-profile nightclubs, including The Viper Room. Among the mysteries that unfolded during this time, one stood out: the disappearance of Anthony Fox, business partner of Johnny Depp, in 2001.

During this time, Cliff Cantor departs Dragonfly to become a professional poker player in Las Vegas, living a life reminiscent of a character from a Quentin Tarantino film. 

We uncover potential connections between Brett’s murder and other notorious unsolved crimes, witnessing the dramatic twists of fate that ensnare the key players from Hollywood’s club scene in 1993.
