79 Park Avenue

Robert Hale
8

Behind this memorable story of the turning point in the lives of two lovers, one risen from the gutter and the other unashamedly drifting towards it, lies the ugly background of the seamy side of New York life. In this book, Harold Robbins tells of the trial of Maryann Flood, a 'model' at 79 Park Avenue, who has been arrested on charges of procurement, bribery and blackmail; and of the dilemma of Mike Keyes, who is conducting the prosecution. For fate seems to have played against Mike in offering him a chance of advancement in his career, which he would dearly like to take, through the trial of the woman he loves and who loves him. Here is a brilliantly-told story of the love of two people trying to bridge the gap between the Law and the New York underworld, under the shadow of the sordid reign of prostitution.
