Anne Legate was born out of wedlock and at the turn of the twentieth century these circumstances of her birth were not only considered disgraceful but caused society to shun her. After her mother’s death, young Anne was forced to play the role of servant in order to live in her grandfather’s house. Anne kept her level-headedness even though she suffered cruel abuse from her grandfather and her narcissistic cousin Ramona. She had two people in her life that made life worth living, Perry Sawyer whom she had loved from an early age, but could never share her feelings for him, because of her illegitimate birth and Sally Lancaster, her dear friend and the house housekeeper for the Sawyer’s.
One day when Anne happens upon a murder scene in the alley near her home, her life changes from one of drudgery to one of terror. Who is mysterious man in the overcoat that is playing menacing games with her? Will she be his next victim?
