This is the tale of the murder of Stanford White, one of America's leading architects at the turn of the century, and also of the search for the truth behind that murder, by the victim's great-granddaughter.

The story of Stanford White--his scandalous affair with the 16-year-old actress Evelyn Nesbit, his murder in 1906 by her husband, the millionaire Harry K. Thaw, and the hailstorm of publicity that surrounded "the trial of the century".
