I have read all of the Gaslight Mysteries ans have enjoyed the building of the characters. This one is the first after Frank has inherited money which changes everything for him and Sarah. While glad for the romance to move on into marriage, I was concerned it would not have the same interesting plotlines and settings as the previous ones. However, this book maintained the enjoyment as the others. I look forward to the next and the next books.

This series keeps getting better and better. Mr. Malloy's life has taken a big change for the better (although it is not easy), allowing him and Sarah to keep doing what they do best - help solve murders while saving lives and reputations.
The idea of keeping women captive has been in the news which makes this plot even more frighfully real. The details of how the crime unravels is handled well to the very end which is somewhat happy and very just.
This is a can't put down until you are done book. It's well written and well edited which is gettting to be harder find these days.

I have read all the books in this series. My grandmother was born on Mulberry Street in Little Italy in April 1892 and I loved hearing her stories about her early life in Manhattan. So I patiently waited for this latest book and I was as pleased with this one as with all the others. I like how the author linked a current issue-- the kidnapping and abuse of women-- to the past, showing how the same crimes we have today were present over 100 years ago. Ms. Thompson has frequently linked women's issues from past to present indicating how these issues were treated in the past. Sad that some things have not changed very much for women. While this book was a bit darker, it was a crime that needed greater exposure. We can't avoid the seamier side of life because it exists and women have suffered and Ms. Thompson has portrayed them well.
The relationship between Frank and Sarah has moved along seamlessly and I can't wait to see how the Malloy's begin their life together and also develop their private investigation business. I can't wait another year for the next book.

Just enough mystery, action and interactions among the characters. I loved it. Explained everything and didn't leave you hanging. Looking forward to reading about them again when they go on the next adventure!

Here in this book Thompson tries to tackle a topic that is both dark and disturbing with as much sensitivity she can while creating a compelling mystery. While she wins on one end she doesn't succeed at both. After being bombarded with violent sexuality that seems to becoming the norm in almost every genre of books, I was very happy to discover that while the disturbing topic she uses here as her foundation is both tragic and disturbing she does not give into the temptation to make it overly graphic. Thank you Ms. Thompson. However, I was hard pressed to believe some of her characters motivations and actions. The dialogue seemed a bit stale and I found myself bored by both the mystery and the ongoing romance of Sarah and Frank. In the past I read the books as much for Sarah and Frank's relationship as for the mystery. Both often were satisfying with the romantic tension between the two being craftily woven into the storyline so that both the relationship and the mystery seemed seamless. Not so here. The developments from the last book which affect both Frank and Sarah the movement forward in their relationship seem tacked on to the mystery and a bit slow in both development and romantic tension. People seemed more cardboard cut out than the well developed characters of past books. This mostly was reflected in the dialogue that seemed listless and uncreative. I didn't believe the characters would say certain things or do certain things and so ended up skimming ahead to see if I should care enough to even finish the book. I did finish but not with the satisfaction I have had when I ended with the other books in this series. For the price of the book, even the Kindle edition, I would not recommend it.

This is the kind of book I anxiously wait every year for publication .I love the story of Sarah and Frank, and the wait they interact which each other and their families and friends. And how New York City looked like in the late 1800's. The horrible misery of the disposed and the tremendous wealth of the very rich. The middle class was almost none existing, and they have to work very hard to keep themselves above falling back into abject poverty.
Additionally, it's so hard to imaging the way the police conducted their investigations and seldom punished the well to do. But, above all I enjoy the way that the author puts everything together to create a very interesting story of old New York and of the eternal need of people's need for love, understanding and justice.

Format: Hardcover
Don't let the period setting fool you, this series does not shy away from depicting some truly horrific crimes. And so it is that Sarah Brandt and Frank Malloy, now finally betrothed, find themselves once again facing man's darker nature. The mystery, setting, and characters are all top notch once again, cementing this series as my second favorite historical mystery series (the Sebastian St Cyr books by [author:C.S. Harris|22067] take first place). I am deducting half a star only because, after the momentous life-changing event that happened in the last book I was expecting to see Sarah and Frank spend a little more time alone in this book. But I expect that there will be plenty of time for that in books to come as the author has promised that married life will not deter Sarah and Frank from solving crimes together. Because as genuine as the setting feels and as wonderfully plotted as the mysteries are, it is the characters and how they relate to each other through the highs and lows of life that really keeps me coming back for more. So while I look forward to seeing Sarah and Frank continue to solve murders, I am chomping at the bit to see this blended family come together into one, stronger whole.
