Overview

"Called to attend a birth in Little Italy, Sarah finds an anxious family: Young Nainsi Ruocco's baby is being born too early. But when he proves to be a fat, lusty lad, their concern turns to fury - the child was obviously conceived before the girl and her husband had even met. Mama Ruocco, already suspicious of her Irish daughter-in-law, is ready to throw her and the infant into the street, until Sarah intervenes to stop her." "The next morning, Sarah returns to check on the new mother, and finds Nainsi dead in her bed. The family insists that the death was from complications of childbirth. Sarah thinks not. Neither does Nainsi's mother, who spreads the story that the girl was murdered by the Ruoccos - a story that inflames tensions between the Italian and Irish immigrants." Police Commissioner Roosevelt wants Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy to find out the truth before a full-scale street war develops. But the Ruoccos, related to the leader of the notorious Black Hand, aren't about to turn against blood - and certainly not to an Irish cop. Malloy realizes that once again, he is going to need Sarah's help to unravel the secrets of this troubled family, bring a killer to justice, and restore order to the volatile community.

    Good but predictable

    This novel is the 8th installment in the Gaslight mystery series. The Gaslight series is set in New York in the mid-1890s, and they are all excellent "period pieces." This one is no exception. The characters are believable and the historical aspects of the book are great. Once again Sarah Brandt the midwife teams up with Frank Malloy the detective to find a murderer -- this time, of a girl for whom Sarah has just delivered a baby.

    This novel shares many strengths with its predecessors, but it is a bit more predictable. I figured out who the murderer was, and why, by about the third or fourth chapter, if not sooner. I've predicted it early in other Gaslight novels but here it was simply too obvious to a reader in the year 2010. The author had to walk a fine line here: situation in which the characters find themselves is very modern, but would have been unthinkable to people in 1896. The trick, which Ms. Thompson usually pulls off wonderfully, is to make it a mystery for both 1890s and 21st century people. This time it was really only shocking and mysterious to the people of the past; you could see a story much like it on almost any soap opera of today.

    That said, although I knew who did it, watching Frank Malloy and Sarah Brandt struggle with the problem and figure it out was entertaining as always. I enjoyed the cameo appearances by Teddy Roosevelt (she writes him much as I imagine him acting), and I very much liked Officer Donatelli, who assists Frank for the entire time in this novel. I haven't read the later books (9 and up) yet but I sincerely hope Donatelli is brought back in the future -- he's a great character.

    This is a solid installment to the Gaslight series, if not quite as mysterious as the rest have been. I strongly recommend it to anyone who likes the other novels in the series, or who likes historical novels, and also to anyone who likes strong, well-written characters.

    Intrigue!

    I bought this book because it was on the bargain list and am so happy that I did. I loved Victoria Thompson's writing style and found this book to be thoroughly engaging. The characters were well thought out and the plot interesting. I am thrilled to find another historical fiction mystery writer! I have read all of Anne Perry's novels and will now begin the journey through Ms. Thompsons!

    Fabulous!

    This is yet another great mystery with a twist. You might think you know who the killer is but do not be so sure Ms. Thompson always has something up her sleeve.
