In the Summer of 1963, cultural change was sweeping America, but George Whitmore Jr. was one of the hapless people who was caught in its wheels. On August 28th, the very day that Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington, two young professional women were brutally killed on Manhattan's Upper East Side. The so-called "Career Girl Homicides" plagued police for six months until city officials announced that they had not only solved the case, they had a confession to prove it. The Savage City by T.J. English (Havana Nocturne) focuses on a case of injustice that made legal history, but he places it within the social context of the time.
