Grace Mae is living in an insane asylum in Boston. When her father learned that he had impregnated her, he placed her in the asylum to hide the pregnancy. After she loses the baby, she is sent to the cellar where she encounters a doctor who is interested in criminal psychology. Dr. Thornhollow recruits Grace as his assistant when he sees that she has a brilliant mind. Grace is smuggled out of the asylum to Ohio to live in another asylum, though this one better than her previous. While there, Grace helps Dr. Thornhollow in observing crime scenes to help hunt down killers. Grace must eventually face her own demons, while trying to keep her own sanity.
