The advertisement, complete with box number, appeared in New York newspapers: "Will anyone having information about an infant abandoned in Manhattan twent-eight years ago please communicate."
Katherine Derwith had placed the advertisement. In love with a very proper lawyer, she had refused to marry him until she solved the mystery of her parentage. Somehow she had to find the answers to questions that had haunted her for years; Who had left her, a young baby, in a shadowy corner of a Hudson River warehouse? Why had she been abandoned?
Among those who answered her advertisement was Carl Dietrich, a television newsman. Although he disclaimed any knowledge of her origins, he offered to help her in her search. Katherine, however, had an uneasy feeling that he was not dealing straightforwardly with her. Her instinct was correct. He had his own reasons for not wanting her to learn who her parents were...reasons that involved a secret so sinister that it could mean death to anyone who stumbled on the truth!
