This first season of Tenfold More Wicked is the real-life saga of America’s most intelligent killer, Edward Rulloff, a brilliant academic in Gilded Age New York City who murdered members of his own family in 1845. He escaped from prison and, while on the run for 30 years, he recruited a cabal of young men to whom he taught philosophy and languages by day and who robbed silk merchants at night. When Rulloff was caught and was sentenced to death, why did some of Manhattan’s elite citizens, Mark Twain, come to his defense?

When a lodger at Hare’s boarding house suddenly dies the pair meets Dr. Robert Knox, one of the world’s most sought-after anatomy professors.
