"The people and the story are magnetic; the background is the city of dreams that almost came true. Atlantic City is revitalized as a resort when gambling is legalized. But the new industry also brings unsettling changes. For Lou, forty years a bodyguard-boyfriend to aging beauty queen Grace, his number-running sideline escalates to mob involvement. A drug-related slaying leaves him a small fortune, a new car and a new girl, Sally, who is the perfect completion of his fantasy"--Container.
