A body is found just blocks from attorney Sarah Woolson's peaceful Rincon Hill home. Sarah is soon on the case, but nineteenth-century San Francisco is rapidly thrown into a state of panic as a gruesome crime spree begins to take hold of the city. Engaged in a life or death struggle to find the murderer, Sarah becomes embroiled in the erotic escapades of the town's infamous high-end brothels, a proper Anglican church, Darwin's shocking theory of evolution, and a vicious killer who will stop at nothing to achieve a scandalous objective.

Professional reviews

"Tallman's series features Sarah Woolson, a nineteenth-century San Francisco attorney who defends the downtrodden and oppressed when no one else will take their cases. In this fourth installment, the primary story concerns several inexplicable murders for which Sarah's clients, Chinese immigrants, are being blamed. Carrington MacDuffie's portrayal of Sarah is commanding yet personable. Her interpretation of the other characters is well defined and distinct although strong female characters are often portrayed as overly strident and shrill. MacDuffie is particularly adept at age-appropriate portrayals. Listeners should enjoy this entertaining whodunit. M.H.N. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
