In Old New York, Teddy Roosevelt seeks answers to a cartoonist’s killing, a missing woman, and an impending bomb plot
As a newspaper war flares between Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, noted cartoonist Evan Crandall is murdered in his apartment. When police officer Dennis Muldoon finds the body, he also discovers a naked, sultry beauty blindfolded and tied to the bed. She pleads with him to free her, but after he unties this mysterious “Pink Angel,” she steals his gun and escapes. Meanwhile, anarchists are planning to blow up the Croton Reservoir during a millionaire’s nearby wedding reception. Enter the police commissioner, Theodore Roosevelt.  With the help of Officer Muldoon, Roosevelt is on a mission to set the city in order, and that will mean putting a stop to escalating crime, and locating the mysterious Pink Angel.
