Abstract:

New York City, winter 1888. A jewel thief dubbed "Robin Hood of the Lower East Side" has been stealing from the city's wealthiest and giving to the poor. Genevieve Stewart, who forged a life of her own as a reporter, decides to chase the story. But she gets more than she bargained for: a murder victim sprawled in a dark alley in the dangerous Five Points neighborhood. A tough comes to her rescue, but she encounters the same man at a glamorous ball a few nights later. He is society scion Daniel McCaffrey. As more murders rock the Knickerbocker world, it becomes apparent that something much more sinister is afoot than a few stolen diamond necklaces. Genevieve is determined to prove that Daniel is Robin Hood - but she's loath to believe he is a killer as well. --
