Publisher's Summary

Thinking that she has been summoned by German immigrant Agnes Otto to usher a new life into the world, midwife Sarah Brandt is greeted by the news of an untimely death instead. It seems that Agnes' beautiful younger sister, Gerda, had fallen into the life of a "charity girl". Caught up in the false glamour of the city's nightlife, she would trade her company and her favors for lavish gifts. And now she was dead - victim, no doubt, of one of her "gentlemen friends".

No one cares much about the fate of girls like Gerda, but Sarah does. To find her killer, she turns to Sergeant Frank Malloy. As the two pursue an investigation that leads from the bright lights of Coney Island to the stately homes of Fifth Avenue, they find that their shared passion for justice may cost them dearly.

    "great book"

    My mom has been telling me for years to read this series. Thought would be boring but have really been enjoying. Good writing, plot and listening.

    "gaslight mystery series"

    great story. I didn't figure out who the bad guy was until very close to the end. suspense kept me turning pages, and when listening, kept my steps slower so I could hear what happened next! if you enjoy clean (no R rated scenes) this is a cozy mystery you will enjoy.

    "Promising!"

    I’m glad I decided to keep going with this series, I can honestly say I liked book 2 much more than book 1!

    I like the relationship between Sarah and Frank along with their respective back-stories, and the fact that the books are set in turn-of-the-century New York City; these are the elements that will keep me going with the series.

    As for the actual crime / murder plots: I remain underwhelmed. The set-ups are simplistic and solving them feels like a series of lucky coincidences… however based on the way book 2 ended I am hopeful that things will become more interesting in future instalments.

    "predictable plot"

    i'd hoped for a bit of a plot twist, but the killer was utterly predictable from the first time they appeared in the story. boring.
