"A great read and a fascinating retelling of a long-forgotten murder, that still resonates to this very day... for anybody interested in the history of the Silk City " -Mark S. Auerbach, City Historian, Passaic, New Jersey

At the dawn of the 20th century, the social unrest in Paterson, New Jersey was palpable. Thousands of Dutch and Italian immigrants flocked to the city, hoping for a job in Paterson's famous silk mills. The burgeoning population ushered women into the workplace, grew suffragist sympathies, and produced an anarchist movement.

In this charged environment, Jennie Bosschieter, a 17-year-old Dutch immigrant and mill worker, was murdered. Sorrow turned to shock when four wealthy, influential citizens were accused of killing her. The resulting criminal trial held the city - and eventually the nation - transfixed.
