Anna Dotson is an icon female propriety --- the wife of a prominent doctor and city alderman, mother of two charming children, and member of the local ladies society. But inside her life is unsatisfying and lonely. Until she meets Charlie Cobb, a married man whose friendship and attention awaken the passion inside her. As the woman's suffrage movement marches on Washington, Anna will find herself drawn farther and farther from the role she is expected to play. And the consequences will be deadly.
Ripped from the headlines of the Tennessean, March 16, 1913, this is the true story of how Anna's betrayal led to a shocking public murder, and the killer's full confession to a local reporter. The only thing more surprising than the crime itself, is the verdict.
