Description


New York City, 1894. The Democratic Party headquarters at Tammany Hall is a hotbed of cronyism, corruption, and intimidation. Private investigator Pamela Thompson's close colleague at Jeremiah Prescott's law firm, former NYPD detective Harry Miller, has had his own career tainted by scandal. Seven years ago, while investigating a case connected to Tammany Hall, he was falsely accused and wrongfully convicted of extortion.
Miller's conviction continues to cast its long shadow into his current life, so he seeks Pamela's help in exonerating him. The key to uncovering the truth lies with the murder of a cabdriver and a missing portfolio with the potential to incriminate certain city aldermen of taking backroom bribes. But as Pamela and Miller follow the money trail to expose the conspiracy, they find their own lives in jeopardy...
