Summary
"They say behind every great man, there's a woman. Or, in the case of Judge Crater, three. Stella, his wife, is the picture of propriety. Ritzi, a leggy showgirl, thinks the judge's bed is the first step out of the chorus line. And thanks to the judge, dutiful maid Maria Simon's husband is promoted to detective in the NYPD. Crater himself is indebted to both Tammany Hall and a notorious gangster. As rumors circulate about widespread political corruption, the Honorable Joseph Crater steps into a cab and disappears forever. Or does he?"

Summary
A steamy reimagining of the scandal-marked 1930 disappearance of Justice Joseph Crater explores events decades later from the perspectives of the three women who knew him best, including his Chanel-draped wife, his showgirl mistress and his dutiful housemaid
