Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jonatha Bayse
Detective Frank Malloy is searching for answers. Four years ago, Dr. Tom Brandt was murdered and his killer never brought to justice. Malloy has since befriended Brandt's widow, Sarah, and believes that it is his duty to solve the case. Sarah has taken it upon herself to continue her late husband's practice by providing midwife services for those who are less fortunate. Sarah has also helped Malloy on several occasions. The bond between them is strong even though they are both afraid of getting too close. Malloy wants to ease Sarah's mind by solving the murder, but what if his search uncovers a truth not even Sarah can comprehend? This novel is another addition to Thompson's Gaslight Mystery series. Those readers who are familiar with the series will not be disappointed. Readers new to Thompson's series might want to read previous entries. Having some background knowledge of Sarah and Malloy will make the story flow more easily. Thompson does an excellent job of shifting the narrative between the two, enabling the reader to see both points of view throughout the novel. Readers will appreciate having a male and female perspective on the same subject. The characters are very well-written, and the story moves quickly. Mystery lovers will thoroughly enjoy this book.

    Delightful historical mystery

    In 1893 New York City, widow Sarah Brandt still hopes to learn who murdered her husband Dr. Tom Brandt four years ago although she knows the case is cold as so much time has elapsed. Back when Tom was killed, the police refused to investigate because they only handled cases when they were paid to do so. However, with Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt¿s approval, Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy has conducted some inquiries mostly because he is attracted to Sarah and admires her courage and intelligence she has worked with him on his investigations.------------- Frank visits Sarah to allegedly update her on his investigation, but he knows he just wants to see her even with her two ¿chaperones¿, her ¿adopted¿ daughter Catherine and teenage nanny Maeve Smith. He thinks the motive has to do with Dr. Brandt treating young women but hides the fact that one of their fathers believes the saintly doctor seduced his offspring he probably killed Tom in a rage. He fears his progress will emotionally hurt Sarah, who has the late Tom standing on a pedestal and devastate his hopes for a romantic relationship with her. However, he also knows if she learns the truth from another source, he will be kicked to the curb.--------------- Fans of the Gaslight Mystery series have waited a long time to learn who killed Dr. Tom and why MURDER ON BANK STREET answers these questions and much more as readers will agree the wait was worth it. The story line is fast-paced especially the last quarter while also providing insight to 1890s New York. Fascinatingly Maeve plays a much greater role in this novel and brings youthful freshness to the mix. A terrific entry, fans will want to know if Frank solves the case as to who and why and if so will he tell Sarah.------------- Harriet Klausner

    A cold case that will keep you guessing

    This 10th novel in the Gaslight Mystery series is the best one of the set to date. The star of the Gaslight Mysteries is Sarah Brandt, a midwife who gets tangled up in murder mysteries far too often. Sarah is a widow whose husband was murdered 3 years before the first Gaslight book, and whose murder was never solved. This is one of the main reasons why Sarah injects herself into murder investigations.

    During the nine books leading up to this one, little by little Sarah and her friend and reluctant mystery-solving partner, Sergeant Frank Malloy, have learned about the murder, which by the time of the books is what we'd call a cold case, bit by bit. Frank starts by looking at the murdered doctor's files in an earlier book, and works with Sarah's father and some private detectives in later books, to slowly narrow down the suspect list to four. That's the way the stage is set when this novel begins.

    Murder on Bank Street finally concludes the story, solving the now-four-year-old mystery for the reader. There are many ups and downs, twists and turns, as you come to believe first one suspect, then another, must be the guilty party. I must have changed my mind at least as many times as there are murder suspects, and at one point I guessed right, only to be convinced by new evidence that I had been wrong, and change my mind. Victoria Thompson kept me guessing until the end, as she has in most of the Gaslight novels.

    If you enjoy a good period piece and a novel with strong and likable characters, then the Gaslight Mysteries are for you, and especially, Murder on Bank Street is for you. I strongly encourage people to read the books in order, however. You will have a hard time keeping up with the facts of the case and the character interactions otherwise. (Plus, they're all good books.)

    Finally!

    I am a Victoria Thompson fan, but until this book, I was frustrated with the "Who Killed Dr. Brandt?" storyline that was pervasive throughout her most recent books in this series. MURDER ON BANK STREET finally brings a believable conclusion to that story, bringing it full-circle. Now readers can immerse themselves in the relationship between Sarah and Malloy and see where the next murder leads them.

    Great series!

    I've been working on reading this series and this is number 10. I'm currently reading number 14 so I can get to the 16th which was released in May, 2014. You can enjoy any one of these novels by themselves BUT I have really enjoyed the background stories that you get from reading them in order! If you like historical fiction (lots of well researched tidbits) and crime and mystery, this series set in 1897 NYC is for you! These are quick reads and I find myself wanting to do nothing but reading and getting my hands on the next one!

    Great series

    Thompson makes each book in the series fresh, yet she slowly tells the tale of two unlikely lovers. You need to read and find out how Frank grows to feel worthy of Sarah and how Sarah realizes he is the man for her.

    Satisfying Entry

    I have read all entries in Ms. Thompson's gaslight series and this one is right up to par. Even though it took 10 installments, we finally discover who killed Sarah Brandt's beloved Tom and I have to admit the killer and motive did not disappoint. The storyline was heartbreaking in more than one way. And the introduction of Maeve as an investigator was refreshing. Is it possible she may get a series of her own?

    I enjoyed all of this Gaslight series I have so far

    Sarah Brandt, Malloy, her neighbors, and her wealthy family during the late 1800's make for VERY interesting and enjoyable mysteries. I am completely hooked.
