Narrator Cassandra Campbell delivers a story of sexual violence in 1890s Brooklyn that resonates with events of today. Detective Mary Handley Lloyd gets involved in the investigation of the drugging and rape of a 15-year-old girl by a group of high-society men. Not surprisingly, Mary's dogged pursuit of justice leads her into danger. Using a strong sense of timing and well-done expression, Campbell captivates listeners, keeping them riveted to the fast-moving story. Listeners will find themselves becoming just as furious as Mary, not only at the violence faced by women, but also by the way no one takes seriously the charges that lower-class women attempt to bring against upper-class men. A powerful listening experience. V.M.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
