The story of Senator William Sharon, "King of the Comstock", and Sarah Althea Hill, who claimed that his attraction to her resulted in a marriage contract making her Mrs. William Sharon, entitling to her half of his fortune. The claim inspired litigation in civil suits ranging from divorce to libel and slander, criminal prosecutions from adultery, perjury and larceny to murder. The author, a California Superior Court judge, sets out the history in meticulous detail based on the complete transcripts of the trials.
