While Sara, Moore and Kreizler struggle with decisions about their future paths, New York is in the grips of an all-out manhunt for the hugger, and the team must overcome the wrath of the police and an underworld gang on the rampage.
Set in 1896, a series of gruesome murders of boy prostitutes has gripped New York City. Newly appointed police commissioner Teddy Roosevelt calls upon Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychiatrist, and John Moore, a newspaper illustrator, to conduct the investigation in secret. Joining them in the probe is Sara Howard, Roosevelt's headstrong secretary, as well as twin brothers Marcus and Lucius Isaacson, both detective sergeants in the New York City Police Department (NYPD).
