Summary
R.J. Nelson, hired in 1987 to clean up rampant corruption on Chicago's waterfront, writes about his experiences, including the angry constituents, prying journalists, shell-shocked employees, and how he made it his personal mission to become a public servant who worked for the common good and followed the spirit--if not always the letter--of the law
