The Bishop and the Butterfly. A conversation with author Michael Wolraich.

Season 8,   Apr 08, 11:00 PM

In this special bonus episode of Once Upon a Crime, I speak with Michael Wolraich, the author of a new true crime book, The Bishop and the Butterfly: Murder Politics, and the End of the Jazz Age. 

In 1931, Vivian Gordon’s body was found in a gully in the Bronx’s Van Cortlandt Park. She’d been brutally strangled, her body dumped.  The investigation into her murder would uncover blackmail plots, sex scandals, and corruption at the highest levels of the New York government.  

The Bishop and the Butterfly is a fascinating look into this true-life murder mystery from the Jazz Age.
