"The depression of the 1930s led people to desperate measures to survive. The Marathon Dance Craze, which flourished at that time, seemed a simple way for people to earn extra money--dancing the hours away for cash. But, the underside of that Craze was filled with a competition and violence unknown to most ballrooms. [author's] classic American story captures that dark side in this powerful novel."--

Corruption city by Horace McCoy( Book )

A young law professor is hired to clean up a city strangled by corruption. Nemo Crespi's organization has a hand in everything from gambling rackets to hotels to newspapers. To combat him, the governor needs a special prosecutor he can trust, someone free of political ambitions ... someone like John Conroy, a twenty-nine-year-old law professor as unlikely for the prosecutor job as anyone. Cynical, hardscrabble Conroy is reluctant to accept, until he realizes that the work will put his theory - that all power corrupts - to a welcome real-life test. It will be a formidable mission, and not just because of the caliber of the enemy. Conroy's own father, a cop promoted to the role of chief investigator, has a close friend in Crespi's ranks, and he knows his fair share of dirty secrets. As the investigation gains speed, Conroy and those closest to him will have to grapple with the full reach of the vicious syndicate
