A Fictional Story of 'The Missingest Man in New York'


The Wife, the Maid and the Mistress by Ariel Lawhon


During the early part of the 20th century, dozens of public figures rose to power that were barely more than puppets for the many gangsters that flourished. From this time comes the story of Judge Joseph Force Crater and his mysterious disappearance on August 6, 1930. The investigation and speculation that followed for decades afterwards, garnered him with the title of "the missingest man in New York." This cold case has now been fictionally re-opened from a new angle - that of the women in Crater's life.

"The Wife, the Maid and the Mistress" by Ariel Lawhon released January 28, 2014 by Doubleday Books of Random House is available from Amazon.com, Amazon UKBarnes & Noble, other eReader formats from Kobo, as an iBook or audiobook from iTunes, in paperback from The Book Depository (free worldwide delivery), or from an IndieBound store near you. I would like to thank the publishers for sending me the ARC of this book via NetGalley.
This is a slightly revised version of my review on Curious Book Fans and Dooyoo, which also appeared on {the now defunct} Yahoo! Contributor Network.
