Mystery on Main Street

Girl on the Velvet Swing

By Simon Baatz

A chronicle of the events surrounding the 1906 murder trial of millionaire Harry Thaw details the scandalous victimization of teen actress Evelyn Nesbit and Thaw's vengeance-fueled, public murder of legendary architect Stanford White, a case that tested the limits of the free press and raised awareness of the disproportionate power of Gilded Age tycoons.
