"A delightful romp through the theatrical courtrooms, seedy back alleys, and elegant parlors of Gilded Age New York." -James McGrath Morris, author of Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power "Only Dickens could have done more with this fabulously rich material. Terrific stuff." -Eric Homberger, author of Mrs. Astor's New York Cait Murphy, author of Crazy '08, is back with Scoundrels in Law: a witty, irreverent book that details the life and outrageous times of the law partnership of Howe and Hummel-quite possibly the most colorful one that ever was-and in the process gives a whirlwind tour of the Big Apple at the end of the 19th Century.
