Overview

In 1924, in the small ore-mining town of Hurley, Wisconsin, wife and mother Emma Sigler killed her abusive husband, Andrew, with a .32 caliber revolver in the Gogebic Hotel. She phoned Andy
Anderson and asked him to help her dispose of the body.
Andy drove the back roads until he came to a field and threw
Sigler's body across a ditch on the side of the road. Then he left town for a week. When he returned to Hurley, he was arrested for killing Sigler. After being jailed, he bragged to an undercover private detective that he killed Sigler. Andy was sentenced to life imprisonment at the state penitentiary.
Emma was arrested as an accessory and was locked up in the county jail for six months until her trial. Shortly before her trial, Emma confessed to murdering her husband in self defense, but she was convicted and received a life sentence in the state penitentiary, and her four children were sent to an orphanage. When she arrived at the prison, it was discovered that Emma was pregnant.
After more than 80 years, the circumstances surrounding the murder of Andrew Sigler and the convictions of Andy Anderson and
Emma Sigler are being told in this novel based on a crime that had been considered "solved".
