* BrokenPedestal: After Helen becomes a murder suspect, the attitude of Det. Frank Valento, who initially acted as an ally to Helen to help her investigate the murders and aided her after her assault, [[TookALevelInJerkass turns cold and hostile towards her]]. Probably justified due to the alleged victim being a missing infant.

** While racial prejudice in Chicago was not unheard of in the late 19th Century, a lynching in or near the city - which was known for being more welcoming to African-Americans than the South, where lynchings were most common - would have been a rare event, if it happened at all. (The sequel tries to fix this by moving the action to New Orleans, located in the Deep South.)
