Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978816722, Hardcover)An intimate study of how the lives of Geoffrey Hawley Chapman, his young bride Cora Rapp Chapman, and his private aide Herbert Searvant were dramatically altered by a strange and mysterious extra-marital affair that ended with an attempted murder. This is the author's second book, a compilation of hundreds of articles covering this mystery that appeared in local newspapers. This history recounts the sensational attempted murder trials of 1891 in which the author's great-grandfather was found guilty of assault on his paramour after getting involved in a frightful love triangle. Herbert Searvant was sent to Sing-Sing Prison where he obtained early release four years later in 1895.
