Sarah Woolson has always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. The trouble is that, in 1880, everyone believes a woman belongs in the home, married and taking care of babies.

Sarah's sure of her client's innocence, but with the discovery of her secret lover, it becomes nearly impossible to prove. When four more victims fall prey to the killer's knife, Sarah fears she's bitten off more than she can chew.
