In "Three Times Murder," a woman is blackmailed by the attorney who knows she is a murderess.
Laura Starling Morton, accused of murdering her husband, is taken to trial but not convicted of the crime due to insufficient evidence. The assistant district attorney who tried the case knows that she did it, and he is determined to profit from that knowledge, one way or another. After the trial, Laura moves on with her life in a new city and soon remarries. She thinks that her troubles are behind her, but they aren't.
