From the Back Cover
In the four years since her husband's death, midwife Sarah Brandt has become an angel of mercy in the tenements of turn-of-the-century New York, helping the less fortunate bring new life into the world -- and with Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy, seeing that justice is done for them.
Now, out of his affection for Sarah, Malloy has taken up the task of solving the murder of Dr. Tom Brandt, though the odds of finding reliable witnesses are slim. He learns that the good doctor was treating several dangerously delusional women, which leads him to a plausible suspicion. But when he discovers what he believes to be the truth, the shocking revelation may destroy Sarah, as well as any hopes Malloy ever had for a future with her . . .

It isn't only Frank who cares, but, Sarah's Father, Mother, and Nanny Maeve, foster daughter, Catherine, and lastly, Mrs. Ellsworth her next door neighbor. Everyone loves Sarah and wants this open pain to heal so that she can move on with her personal life.
There is the very real fear that once the truth is disclosed, Sarah may not like the answers, however, it is too late to stop now. Frank has been given the aid of a Pinkerton Woman Detective. This was a rarity for the post-civil war agency.
This book, as does its earlier volumes, catches us up in the daily lives of NYC in the late 1890's. Teddy Roosevelt is about to leave the Police force for an assignment in the cabinet of newly elected, President McKinley. The future of Frank and the NYPD is up in the air. All Frank knows is that time is short to solve this very cold case.
We are also taught a great deal about mental illnesses and how they were treated at that time. Dr. Freud was a new name in the field.
I can't wait to see what happens next in this outstanding series.
