"In my profession, one learns not to say what goes on between a man and a woman."
With a saloon and brothel located in the center of Five Points, Eva Heissen, the Madame of Eva's Paradise, is a shrewd businesswoman. A long list of patrons including Corcoran, Maguire, and several other coppers from the Sixth Precinct, help Eva maintain control over her employees with stern precision. Slow to trust, her suspicious nature helps her stay one step ahead of her clients and maintain a successful business. Despite her tough-as-nails exterior, she shows her gentler side when she is with Corcoran – who finds comfort in Eva’s arms while his heart yearns for his missing wife.
