Within The Law

The tale of a good girl done wrong...and out for revenge.
Mary Turner is suspected of theft from the department store where she works as a shop girl. Sent up the river for three years, she comes out determined to give Society its just deserts, and she discovers ingenious means of doing so while always staying within the law. Can a life of legitimate crime pay? Certainly not without complications: logistical, ethical, and romantical. A twisting and turning melodrama with a light-fingered social conscience from the Progressive age.
