Palm Beach is manicured to the max - people and places. This is a story of the cracks behind the facades - we know of the gap between the haves & have nots, but here's the divide between the old haves & the new haves in all its detail: from old men with trophy wives and their corollaries - gold-digging "walkers" who escort the rich widows, to aggressive New Yorkers (think the Donald) who've changed the culture of a place that once defined the cream of culture. Perfect for a vacation read while in (where else?) Palm Beach.
