9781401048013: Lords of Corruption: A True Story Based on the Life of Jack Portock- Legendary Police Officer Who Led the Four Horsemen of Atlantic City

Long before casinos became legal in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a powerful political machine known as "The Organization" sanctioned and operated gambling establishments throughout the resort. Mobsters aided by corrupt politicians and cops-on-the-take controlled the city's businesses, both legitimate and shady. In the early 1950s, four honest policemen, led by determined officer Jack Portock, battled the corruption and illegal operations in the name of the laws they'd sworn to uphold. Their efforts earned them nationwide prominence and powerful enemies, including the leader of "The Organization," New Jersey State Senator Frank "Hap" Farley. Farley and his minions would stop at nothing to discredit and defeat the intrepid officers. From the resort nicknamed the "World's Finest Playground" to the Kefauver Crime Commission's televised hearings on organized crime held in Washington, D.C., "Lords of Corruption" tells the gripping true story of the legendary Jack Portock and his fellow officers who came to be known as "The Four Horsemen of Atlantic City."
