I love a good mystery and found one in “Murder on St. Nicholas Avenue” by Victoria Thompson. Ms. Thompson has written seventeen more mystery novels known as the Gaslight Mysteries. After reading this one, I will certainly keep finding her novels to read.
Frank Malloy and Sarah Brandt are on their honeymoon. Frank is a former police detective who quit the force when he came into an inheritance. Their friend, Mrs. O’Neill’s daughter has married a wealthy man, Randolph Pollock, a few months previously. To her horror, her daughter, Una, has been arrested for the bludgeoning death of her husband. She has come to the Malloy home to request the help of Frank Malloy in investigating this murder and saving her daughter from prison or worse. In their absence, the Malloys’ servants decide to provide their assistance. Even Sarah’s parents get in on the act. However, all is not as it seems. You will be transported to turn-of-the-century New York and into a very interesting piece of detective work. I truly enjoyed this story and I highly recommend it.
I received a print copy of this book from NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest review.
