A frank novel of broken vows and secret sins in a New York suburb that everybody knows

I don’t know what kind of foolish art director decided to crop out the peeping tom from this cover, but at least he used it on the back cover.

She brought her best friend’s husband to the motel to prove to him that his wife and her husband were having an affair. But while they waited for their respective spouses to check into the hot-pillow hideaway, she decided that they too could play at infidelity!
This is a frank and revealing novel of manners and morals in the suburbs. With candor and brutal honesty, it lays bare the wild joys and heartaches, the fear and insecurity that drive suburban couples into adultery and deceit.

Novak could always find them…

He wanted money — but he wanted women even more. There was Denise, there was Ginny, there was Valerie; but there was also the boss’s provocative wife — and she controlled the bank account!

If You Dare — Share The Excitement Of These Couples Trapped In A Cozy Motel — Isolated By Storm, By Seduction, And By Their Own Utter Lack Of Morality!

From the back:

It was one of those motels so common along the turnpike, but it had its special features. Pretty Vinnie, for instance, who attracted men like Joe Stacy more than their wives did. Naturally he stopped by often. So did couples like Jane and Bruce, both married — but not to each other. On the night the blizzard burst over the highway, all were marooned — and the isolation killed inhibition. A pair of travelers, Virginia and Sally, found themselves sharing a single bed. Lydia Lane was ready to spend the night with anyone. Even Barbara, Joe’s beautiful wife, showed up — with another man.

1972’s Bloodiest Search For Sunken Riches

The prize was a million dollars in mercury. But he was surrounded by enemies — the sea, the sharks, hijackers, and then the most unexpected enemy of all…

By the 70’s, these men’s magazine covers had devolved to stereotypical (i.e. boring) girly-photos, but the interior illustrations were often still awesome.
