In October 1931, a station agent found two large trunks abandoned in LA's South Pacific Train Station. What he found inside ignited one of the most scandalous tabloid sensations of the decade.


Inspired by this notorious true crime, Bury Me Deep is the story of Marion Seeley, a young woman abandoned in Phoenix by her husband. At the medical clinic where she finds a job, Marion becomes fast friends with Louise, a vivacious nurse, and her roommate, Ginny. Before long, the demure Marion is swept up in the exuberant life of the girls, who supplement their scant income by entertaining the town's most powerful men with wild parties. At one of these events, Marion meets-and falls hard for-the charming Joe Lanigan, a local rogue and politician on the rise, whose ties to all three women bring events to a dramatic and deadly collision.


A story born of Depression-era desperation and Jazz Age nostalgia, Bury Me Deep - with its hothouse of jealousy, illicit sex, and shifting loyalties - is a timeless portrait of the dark side of desire.
