How Maher got Beverly / Danielle off with probation instead of prison for her kidnapping charges:
“Maher . . . bent the truth about one of the dealers.”
How Beverly / Danielle reacted to her light sentence which Maher’s helped orchestrate:
“She stared into Maher’s eyes in the dreamy way someone would regard a hero.”
Maher decides to move Beverly/Danielle away from all the coke dealers in Miami that she has sexed up in exchange for drugs, and relocate to New York. He sees this as a perfect strategy to keep her from sleeping with any more men, but immediately helps her get a stripping job at a coke dealer hang out in Queens. Maher’s jealousy rages when he finds Beverly getting some suspicious “deals” around town, including a quick promotion at work and a cut-rate apartment deal:
“You don’t become the featured dancer at Gallagher’s making six hundred a night unless you’re f****ing somebody.”
The night after Maher almost shoots up the strip joint where she works Beverly / Danielle lets him in her apartment:
“’You shouldn’t have done that, Kevin,’ she said with a smile. Beverly laughed. Maher laughed. Then they tore each other’s clothes off.”
When Maher’s wife Beth had finally had enough of all the drama and got herself and her son out of Maher’s life, Beverly slinked right in. The pair immediately started having a grand time:
“Cocaine and passion, endless weeks of delirious pleasure. Maher and Beverly floated into the charcoal days of autumn. By October, Maher had moved into Beverly’s Brooklyn apartment.
‘You know, Kevin,’ Beverly said one night, ‘I’ve been with probably a thousand guys and I’ve never felt this way about any of them.’
Maher looked at her in disbelief. A thousand guys?
Maybe it was the cocaine. Maybe Maher had just gone crazy. Whatever it was, Kevin Maher and Beverly Merrill were united in matrimony on October 20, 1988.”
Maher was still married to Beth at the time, but that was a minor detail. The chaotic fairytale romance of Beverly/Danielle and Kevin Maher continued as Beverly/Danielle attempted to best herself by sleeping with 10,000 men, Maher went on jealous rampages, and they end up in bed together.
