Addie is abducted, her father is about to be hung, all because of Jess Pepper’s investigative reporting in 1896 New York City.
All Jess wanted to do was show a good Samaritan a city’s gratitude. Instead, he signed the man’s death warrant with one of his first articles as investigative reporter for the New York Times.When his story re-opened a twenty-year-old criminal case, it unleashed the anger of Deacon Trumbull, a corrupt precinct chief who thought his old crimes long buried.
Beautiful and talented, Addie came to the city with little more than a violin tucked beneath her chin and enough moxie to launch her dream – and find the father she hadn’t seen in sixteen years. And she did find him – just days before Jess’s article put a noose around his neck.
Now, in the darkest corner of the city, corruption and greed bring Addie and Jess to the brink of terror, and Jess must discover not only who wants this good man dead, but how to save the woman who has stolen his heart.
