In the midst of this misery, some folks explored unscrupulous ways to make money. Angel-faced John Partlow and carnival huckster Ginger LaFrance are among the worst of this lot. Joining together they leave their small time confidence scams behind to attempt an elaborate kidnapping-for-ransom scheme in New Orleans. In a different part of town, Curtis Mayhew, a young black man who works as a redcap for the Union Railroad Station, has a reputation for mending quarrels and misunderstandings among his friends. What those friends don"t know is that Curtis has a special talent for listening... and he can sometimes hear things that aren"t spoken aloud. One day, Curtis Mayhew"s special talent allows him to overhear a child"s cry for help, which draws him into the dangerous world of Partlow and LaFrance.
