Murder in Morningside Heights by Victoria Thompson

Midwife Sarah Brandt and private detective Frank Malloy return to investigate a death in the field of higher learning in this Gaslight Mystery from the national bestselling author of Murder on St. Nicholas Avenue...
After spending his first few weeks as a private detective by investigating infidelities of the wealthy, Frank has a more serious case at hand.
Abigail Northrup of Tarrytown, New York, was her parents’ pride and joy. After graduating from a prestigious women’s college in Morningside Heights, she took a job there as an instructor. She also joined the ranks of the New Women, ladies planning for a life without a husband in which they make their own decisions and make a difference in the world. Unfortunately, her murder ended all that.
When the police declare the incident a random attack and refuse to investigate further, Abigail’s parents request Frank’s help. Of course, he’ll need Sarah’s assistance as she’s more familiar with the world of academia, and it will be far easier for her to interview the lady professors. Yet difficulties arise as they learn that although Miss Northrup may have been an exemplary student and teacher, she lived in a world of secrets and lies…

I've read them all. I love the historical backdrop to this series. As a history major, I have found that Victoria Thompson ' s social topics that are woven into the stories, add a richness and depth to her mysteries. I feel like Frank and Sara are friends, as I've watched the development of their relationship . Can't wait for the next story in the series.
