Summer is the season for sin. When Ted Clinton arrived at the vacation inn, he found that it featured some unexpected diversions. Like sleek Ruth Henderson and her bevy of hostesses whose job it was to please male guests. Lady vacationers, too, starving for love and excitement, did their share to turn summertime into playtime.
It's 1959. The town of Clinton, just a short train ride from the Big Apple, is awash with sexuality. There's Olive, who feels the urge to merge with her married neighbor Sally, but fears her lesbian lust is an abomination. Olive's long-suffering husband, Jerry, seeks solace in the arms of his bombshell sister-in-law. And why did Sally's husband, Fred, disappear with Ruth Archer at the hottest party on Morris Drive every Saturday night? Pulp sleazemaster Orrie Hitt hits a bull’s-eye with this shocking tale of tawdry affairs.
