This is the 9th book in the series.

This book is one of the later books in a series, but this is the first audiobook. If you haven’t read the first books I can’t imagine too many people liking this book. If this is the first book in the series that you've read then I think it would be boring to some since you wouldn't have the background of the character. If you like the other books then you’ll like this one. I enjoy her books but they aren’t for everyone. In each book it’s been very easy to determine who committed the crime long before the characters in the book figure it out. What I enjoy about the book is the interaction between the two characters. There’s no sex or language in her books, I think it’s what some people call a “cozy mystery”.

A new mystery writer to follow! Not only did I get to learn more about the Chinese/American experience in early New York, I got involved in a good mystery about a young Chinese/Irish girl's murder. I did figure out who done it but not until almost the end. I want more! More mystery! More info on a detective who works under Teddy Roosevelt! More about the midwife who seems to get involved in his cases!
