Copyright 2009 and 2010
Synopsis: Blind, Salvation Army bell ringer, Rosie McGinty, suffers a grievous bodily assault and robbery of her kettle outside Brindle-Halls department store when she is struck from behind by what may have been a boomerang. A concerned Doctor Scofield pits his persistence against Captain Underhill’s initial reluctance in getting him to take up the case. Lacking any eyewitnesses, including the victim herself, Underhill devises a clever plan to entice the mugger, or muggers, into striking again. When his trap succeeds it leads to a shocking courtroom confrontation that both Sherlock Holmes and Perry Mason would have been proud to be part of.
