Sergeant Greevy and Detective Logan investigate the death of a man found in Central Park. He was alive when found with a cracked skull but has had a heart attack as well. Oddly, his underwear was on backwards. They determine that he had booked himself into a nearby hotel and then arranged for a call girl to visit him. They locate the girl and it leads them the owner of a self-styled catering agency, well-known society hostess Laura Winthrop. ADA Stone wants to pursue her and the case certainly gets a lot of media attention. Her defense is that she was a responsible madam who took good care of her girls. Stone's intent is to show the damage she's caused. Written by

Based on the Sydney Biddle Barrows case. Better known as the 'Mayflower Madam', Sydney Biddle Barrows was a modern American madam. After her escort service was exposed and disbanded, she gained worldwide notoriety, in part because she was part of the upper-class Biddle family of Philadelphia and is a Mayflower descendant. In October 1984, her escort service was shut down and she was charged with promoting prostitution by the New York City District Attorney's Office. After she pled guilty, she published a best-selling autobiography, Mayflower Madam
(1987), which later became a television movie of the same name starring 'Candice Bergen'_. See more
