In 1923, Annalee Spain, a black college professor, leaves Chicago for Denver to investigate the murder of her father. Can an amateur detective solve a cold case mystery? What she finds is a city full of crime, bribes, murders, cover ups and more. Her life is in danger but she vows not to give up. One discovery she makes is the cover up of murders of mixed blood babies by the higher social elite. But she also finds love and friendship for black Christians. A good picture of the treatment of African Americans following the Civil War.
