Synopsis

The plot of this gripping murder trial drama involves Bjorn Faulkner, who has swindled millions of dollars from investors by fraudulently trying to control the trade in gold. In the wake of a financial crash, he is facing bankruptcy despite the infusion of money from John Graham Whitfield, a prominent banker whose daughter, Nancy Lee Faulkner, married Faulkner shortly after the loan was made. On the night of January 16th, Karen Andre, Bjorn's mistress of ten years, and Faulkner are in the penthouse atop the Faulkner Building. He falls to his death in what may have been a suicide, or may have been murder. Karen Andre is arrested, charged with murder and placed on trial. She is being prosecuted by District Attorney Flint and represented by defense lawyer Stevens. During the action of the play, a number of witnesses are called to testify, including a private investigator, the County Coroner, and a notorious gangster. The testimony they give produces a complex and contradictory story. The jury, selected from the audience, must decide the guilt or innocence of the defendant.
