Abstract:

This is the true story of a double murder that occurred in March, 1873 off the New England coast. The event was followed closely by newspapers across the country for months. It is unique because of the circumstances surrounding the crime and the controversy it raised. Reconstructed from old newspaper articles, court transcripts, the Internet and other source materials, it is as factual as I have been able to make it. Names and places are real, as is trial testimony. Where facts and dialogue were available from research and documented sources, they are accurate. Where they were scant or sustained by rumor yet necessary for the flow of the story and capture of emotions, the interpretations are mine. --author.
