The daughter of one of New York's most powerful political figures is a stunningly beautiful, well-educated blonde, who is also a very high-priced call girl. Sent on a date to the Plaza Hotel by the shrewdest--and perhaps the richest--madam in Manhattan, she is brutally murdered. Because of his reputation for solving sex crimes, the Sixth Precinct's Lt. Ben Tolliver is assighed to the case, and finds himself caught up in a maelstrom of intrigue, fostered by a wildly ambitious assistant district attorney, mambers of he NYPD's top brass, and the dead woman's coldly authoritarian father-- who has a secret agenda of his owh. Meanwhile, other gorgeous call girls fall victim to the same killer, each murder more bizarre than the one before. Tolliver puts both his career and his life on the line as he tracks down the murderer.
A follow-up to the much acclaimed By Reason of Insanity, Painted Ladies peels the hide off the political workings of the New York Police Department, and tells how the top echelon of the city's sex -for-pay industry really works.
