Lilly re-opens the 1929 case of a woman found dead in a ravine on Christmas Day when the victim's great-granddaughter comes in asking for help. Meanwhile, Lilly's estranged mother shows up, hoping to re-connect with her daughter, and telling her she's getting married... for the fourth time.


It was 1929 and vivacious, plucky Violet Polley was a promising singer and songwriter attempting to support herself. She draws the attention of affluent Nick Bartleby. Initially scoffing his attentions, his charm wins her over. The difficulty of the depression and its affect on his family's wealth had him overwhelmed. When Violet Polley shows up with the baby carriage of little Rose Polley, their love child, at the family mansion requesting assistance or marriage, she and baby were cruelly rebuffed by him. Violet is bludgeoned to death within minutes outside the Bartleby's mansion and hidden in the bushes. No one was prosecuted. At that time was a pretty theatrical lover of Nick's, Carmela LeFleur, who had come around to being more cordial to Violet. Hearing the baby Rose's cries she rushed outside, seeing no one, took her to an orphanage.
