    "This is the 9th book in the series."

    This book is one of the later books in a series, but this is the first audiobook. If you haven’t read the first books I can’t imagine too many people liking this book. If this is the first book in the series that you've read then I think it would be boring to some since you wouldn't have the background of the character. If you like the other books then you’ll like this one. I enjoy her books but they aren’t for everyone. In each book it’s been very easy to determine who committed the crime long before the characters in the book figure it out. What I enjoy about the book is the interaction between the two characters. There’s no sex or language in her books, I think it’s what some people call a “cozy mystery”.

    "maddeningly mundane"

    I do not like "edge-of-seat" thrillers, but this was positively edge-of-sleep material.

    The basic mystery was good, but too obvious to all except the sleuths. A good period cozy compensates by richness of period detail. While the author provides some information on the period, it's not woven well into the text. The characters and especially dialogue were very modern day, not turn of the century. The narration somehow reinforced that modern feel.

    I'll give the author credit for not relying on gratutitous violence or sex to tell her tale, though. I'd try a mystery written by her set in modern day but will not download any more of her period mysteries -- She doesn't have that touch, at least not in this installment in her series.

    "An author to follow"

    A new mystery writer to follow! Not only did I get to learn more about the Chinese/American experience in early New York, I got involved in a good mystery about a young Chinese/Irish girl's murder. I did figure out who done it but not until almost the end. I want more! More mystery! More info on a detective who works under Teddy Roosevelt! More about the midwife who seems to get involved in his cases!
