Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the tenements to the town houses of nineteenth-century New York, midwife Sarah Brandt and Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy never waiver in their mission to aid the innocent and apprehend the guilty. Now, the latest novel in the Edgar®-nominated Gaslight Mystery series finds Sarah and Malloy investigating the murder of a Knickerbocker club member who was made to pay his dues…

Sarah's father, Felix Decker, takes his position in society seriously. He refuses to accept his daughter's involvement with an Irish Catholic police detective. But when a member of his private club — the exclusive Knickerbocker — is murdered, Decker forms an uneasy alliance with Frank Malloy to solve the crime as discreetly as possible.

Malloy discovers that the deceased — Chilton Devries — was no gentleman. He's left behind his own unofficial club of sorts, populated by everyone who despised him. As Malloy and Sarah sort through the suspects, it becomes clear to her that her father is evaluating more than the detectives investigative abilities, and that, on a personal level, there is much more at stake for Malloy than discovering who revoked Devries membership — permanently.
