This was another good story in the ongoing Gaslight series. We started reading this series in 1999 with the first book Murder on Astor Place. Ms. Thompson started with a delightful group of characters and has developed them masterfully over the years.
Sarah Brandt is a plucky heroine, and Detective Sgt. Frank Malloy is intrigued by this independent, smart woman. Sarah's husband was killed and in those times the police force was just being formed, without too much of a spoiler, Frank's perseverance has finally payed off and he has solved the mystery of who killed Sarah's husband. Now with two more books in the series already published we will see how Ms. Thompson carries on with the interesting lives of Sarah and her companions.
