It is February 1927 and Schenectady, New York, proud home of General Electric is booming with prosperity. Rodney Longworth, handsome and debonair assistant manager at the elegant Hotel Van Curler, experiences firsthand the explosion of violence when two women are brutally murdered in Cucumber Alley, not far from the home he shares with his parents in the historic stockade district.
Soon yet another victim is found. It seems no one is safe. As his suspicions and apprehension grow, Rodney elicits the assistance of Sloane Sheppard, a private investigator. Long held secrets, surprising family revelations, open hostilities and another murder attempt confound Sloane as he races against time to resolve the crisis occurring in the otherwise placid neighborhood.
Amidst a backdrop of flappers, speakeasies, jazz music, beguiling scientists and the newfound expedient of television, Murder in Cucumber Alley continues to a shocking denouement when Sloane Sheppard unmasks the culprit behind the horrendous murders in Cucumber Alley.
