Adelaide is seeking her father, Ford Magee, who abandoned her when she was a small child, but their first meeting does not go well. In an effort to mend their relationship, he pens a letter to her explaining the circumstances of his absence and how he secretly kept a watchful eye on her as she grew up. But a secret diary reveals that Ford disappeared at the same time the murders were occurring. Suspicion falls upon Ford. Jess and Adelaide team up to unravel the mystery in order to prove Ford's innocence. Step by step they encounter corruption, treachery, and family secrets.
Beautifully presented, the story was interesting with fascinating characters. The romance between Addie and Jess unfolded tenderly, realistically, and without the melodrama one usually finds in the romance genre. The twists and turns added to the story's unrelenting suspense as the hero and heroine face one difficulty after another. I enjoyed the unique setting of 1890's New York where the author added wonderful descriptions of landmarks and period facts. For a nice cozy mystery, this is definitely a great read!
The Devil's Dime is Book One of the Samaritan Trilogy, so keep an eye out for Jess and Addie to return!
I need not have worried ... this book works perfectly as a stand-alone story; with an enticing opening; a richly crafted, suspenseful plot; and a defined, thoughtful and unrushed conclusion ... which leaves you wondering just enough, to be pleased that there might be more adventures to come for our hero and heroine.
It was especially rewarding to see that a US author, has centred her story around the New York City of the turn of the twentieth century, rather than have me find our characters in London, or some other UK location, as is so often the case with historical romances. The background information for the period, appeared thorough and almost lovingly described. I had some great times spent researching authentic American, period words and terms of which I was unaware and I had a real sense of `being' on the streets along with Jess and Addie, as they traversed the deprived, ravaged and gang controlled areas, which were home to the seedier elements of society and those in the dubious employ of the corrupt few amongst the upper echelons of society, who sought to profit and gain from others misery.
This, in direct conflict with the the more glamorous, decorous circles in which Jess and Addie were becoming used to circulating; Jess with his increasingly sought after journalistic and investigative skills and Addie in her aspiring career as a virtuoso violinist.Read more ›
A talented author's work that is worth the time taken to read.
I fell in love with these characters and this first book in Bristol's Samaritan Files trilogy, and can't wait for the next book in the series!

I love reading stories about the 1800's early 1900 eras but this one got a little slow towards the middle. Read morePublished on September 24, 2012 by Valerie A. Strunk
if I understand correctly, the author is a modern writer who writes in a style to mimic authors of the late 1800's era. The story seemed well-written. Lots of historical detail. Read morePublished on September 6, 2012 by Thatch1120
