Midwife Sarah Brandt and Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy's most disturbing case to date begins not with a murder, but with the pregnancy of a young woman-who is mentally still a child herself. And when suspicion falls on a beloved minister, the sordid affair could take its toll in innocent lives
In Victoria Thompson's Murder on Lenox Hill: A Gaslight Mystery, the well-crafted seventh entry in this late Victorian historical series (after 2004's Murder on Marble Row), midwife Sarah Brandt and her detective friend, Frank Malloy, look into the murder of a popular New York minister, the Rev. Oliver Upchurch, who may have impregnated a lovely but mentally deficient 15-year-old girl. Good plot twists and a highly satisfactory wrapup mark this as the work of a master of the period mystery. Agent, Nancy Yost. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
