Saving Sin City: William Travers Jerome, Stanford White, and the Original Crime of the Century by Mary Cummings
English | 2018-05-01 | ISBN-10: 1681777460 | 336 Pages



An operatic story of jealousy, obsession, vast fortunes, and moral crusaders set against the glittering backdrop of Gilded Age New York City. When Stanford White, one of the most famous architects of the era―whose mark on New York City is second to none―was murdered by Harry K. Thaw in 1906, his death become known as "The Crime of the Century." But there were other players in this love triangle gone wrong that would play a part in the incredible story of White's murderer. Chief among them was the ambitious district attorney William Travers Jerome, who had the opportunity to make―or break―his career with his prosecution of Thaw. Award-winning journalist Mary Cummings reveals a new angle to this incredible crime through Jerome's story―a story that is ripe for our post-"Serial" era. Thaw was the debauched and deranged heir to a Pittsburgh fortune who had a sadistic streak. White was an artistic genius and one of the world's premier architects who would become obsessed with a teenaged chorus girl, Evelyn Nesbit. White preyed on Nesbit, who, in a surprising twist, also became a fixation for Thaw. Nesbit and Thaw would later marry, but Thaw's lingering jealousy and anger toward White over his past history with Nesbit would explosively culminate in White's shocking murder―and the even more shocking trial of Thaw for a murder that was committed in front of dozens of eye witnesses. The promising young D.A. would find his faith in himself and the law severely tested as he battled colorful crooks, licentious grandees, and corrupt politicians. Cummings brilliant reveals the social issues simmering below the surface of New York that Jerome had to face. Filled with mesmerizing drama, rich period details, and fascinating characters, Saving Sin City sheds fresh light on crimes whose impact still echoes throughout the twenty-first century. 8 pages of B&W illustrations
