Sarah meets Sergeant Frank who was a cop in the city of New York. Frank Malloy has never known any other life apart from that of being a cop. During those latter days, cops were poorly paid and they only preferred to investigate crimes of those who could manage to give a good reward.

Frank had dreams of becoming an officer in the army, a position which he had to pay a substantial amount of bribe and so he was busy saving money wisely for that purpose. He didn’t have the time to expose the crime concerning the killing of a young girl whose family could not afford to pay him but Sarah Brandt didn’t want to let him shun away from his duty.

Changing the mentality of a man like Frank was not an easy task but Sarah managed to convince him.

It emerges that Agnes’ young sister Gerda had developed the attitude of extravagance.She would occasionally trade her company fortunes for luxurious gifts and evening’s entertainment. As a result of her sudden death, it was suspected that it was one of her boyfriends.

No one seemed to care about the death of a careless girl like Gerda except Sarah. She vowed to expose her killer. To actualize this, she turns to Frank Malloy for help. As the two started out their investigation which led from the bright lighted streets of the Island of Coney to the beautiful homes on Fifth Avenue, they soon discover that their common passion to seek justice for the oppressed could cost them dearly one day.
