The Virgin Crime is a murder mystery/romance poem set in the Deep South during the Great Depression. The story follows Ginny Sheppard, the bashful daughter of cotton tycoon Whitney Sheppard – he prefers to go by Stu- as she tries to unravel the mysterious death of her father’s despicable foreman Roy Earl Montgomery. Whitney’s tailor, a self-taught compassionate African American named Billy-Ray Jordan has been accused of the crime and sentence to death by hanging. The only person that knows Billy Ray is innocent is Billy’s secret lover Ginny. Ginny refuses to tell the court that Billy and her were together the night of the murder because she fears she would be killed for loving a black man. David Peck a perplexing calculating lawyer from the NAACP has travelled from the big city to defend Billy Ray. As cunning as he is, it becomes apparent that the courts are convinced Billy Ray is the real killer. Ginny decides to track down the culprit herself so she can clear her lover’s name.
