The latest Gaslight Mystery from the bestselling author of Murder in Morningside Heights finds Sarah Brandt and Frank Malloy searching for a connection between a murdered newsie and a high society woman with dangerous habits.

Frank Malloy’s latest client is the well-dressed Will Bert. He’s searching for his brother, a newsboy named Freddie, so he can share his new financial good fortune. Frank makes quick work of the case and locates Freddie, but a happy reunion between brothers is not in the cards. 

When Will’s name is mentioned, Freddie runs off—only to be found dead a short time later. Suspicious, Frank tracks down Will who spins a tale of lust and deceit involving a young society woman, Estelle Longacre, also recently deceased.  Frank can’t be sure if Estelle’s risky behavior and the company she kept was to blame, or if her own ruthless family had a hand in her death.

Frank will need Sarah’s help to unearth the dark secrets of the wealthy Longacres and to discover if there is a connection between Estelle and Freddie’s death. Together they must navigate a perilous underground web of treachery to find the truth.

This is a solid addition to the Gaslight Mystery series. It is interesting to see the investigative duties begin to rest more on Frank and Gino's shoulders rather than mostly on Sarah's. Show character development through the series. Looking forward to seeing what happens next for Sarah's new venture and for Maeve and Gino. I also enjoyed seeing the Newsboy strike featured as well as the orphan trains and the tours that were offered through the Bowery. Like reality television, actually. If you like historical fiction and mysteries, this series is for you.

Absolutely one of the best in the series. I think Ms. Thompson has found her stride writing Frank and Sarah and the supporting cast. They have all become a team who solves crimes at the turn of the century. Wonderful use of historical facts woven into the story. Although I had guessed the unspeakable crime hidden in the background, if was fun to see it unfold in the story. There was actually even some passion between Frank and Sarah, even if it was subtle. Looking forward to seeing the Maternity Hospital take flight and it would be nice to see more of Catherine and Brian in the next story. Really nice addition to the Gaslight series.
