Add to Wish List
Sarah Brandt is surprised when the son of her
superstitious next door neighbor asks for her professional
advice. She is even more surprised to learn mild-mannered
Nelson Ellsworth has a mistress and has gotten her with
child. When the young woman later turns up dead under the
infamous hanging tree in Washington Square, Nelson is the
prime suspect. Sarah knows he must be innocent, and she
enlists the help of her friend, Detective Frank Malloy, to
help her find the real killer.
When the crime becomes public knowledge, Sarah and Frank
must battle a legion of scandal mongering newspaper
reporters who are intent on trying and convicting Nelson
before he has even been charged with the crime. With the
help of Nelson’s mother and an ambitious reporter, Sarah
must prove that, in this case at least, the victim may
have been the victimizer.
