    In the early 20th century over 200 of New York's most glamorous socialites joined the suffrage movement. Their names - Astor, Belmont, Rockefeller, Tiffany, Vanderbilt, Whitney, and the like - carried enormous public value. These women were the media darlings of their day because of the extravagance of their costume balls and the opulence of the French couture clothes, and they leveraged their social celebrity for political power, turning women's right to vote into a fashionable cause.

    Press Corpse brings back the dynamic twosome of Jerry Knight, the “Night Talker” - the brash and opinionated right-wing host of America’s most popular all-night radio talk show - and Jane Day, a thoroughly liberated and just as opinionated leftist reporter for the Washington Post. Their philosophies are light-years from one another. From food to religion, politics to who’s going to win the Superbowl, these two can’t seem to agree on anything. Anything but murder, that is.
