Forget OJ. The real "crime of the century" occurred decades earlier, when playboy millionaire Harry Thaw murdered famed architect Stanford White in the middle of a Madison Square Garden crowd. The motive? Thaw was convinced that White had raped his wife, Evelyn Nesbit, when she was just sixteen years old.
But was Nesbit telling the truth? And was Thaw sane -- or a violent madman? Simon Baatz tells the story of the love triangle and murder trial that electrified the USA at the dawn of the twentieth century in THE GIRL ON THE VELVET SWING.
