Publisher's Summary

Sarah Brandt is shattered when she learns that a woman has inquired at Hope’s Daughters Mission for Catherine, the abandoned child she has taken as her daughter. The woman claims she was Catherine’s nursemaid, now acting on behalf of the girl’s mother to reunite them. Unwilling to simply hand Catherine over to a complete stranger, Sarah asks Malloy to investigate. But when he goes to interview the woman at her tenement in Chelsea, he finds she has been murdered. Though her death leaves Sarah’s claim to Catherine unchallenged, her sense of justice compels her to work with Malloy to find the killer. Their search takes them from the marble mansions of the Upper West Side to the dilapidated dwellings of lower Manhattan and into the deepest and darkest secrets of Catherine’s past. And while Malloy helps Sarah determine the fate of the child she loves, he faces a challenge of his own - and his decision could change both their lives forever….

Best of the series

I'm not entirely sure what has happened in both the writing and the narration with this series, but it has been very uneven. There have sadly been several where the plot and narration were terribly disappointing. But this one makes up for that on every level. The story is great, and miraculously, the narration is very good as well. (Odd, because the same narrator didn't do such a good job in a couple of previous episodes). Kudos to author and narrator!

This has been the best story in the series, in my opinion. There are more characters who have previously been somewhat peripheral taking an active role (especially Sara's parents). This makes for a better, more well-rounded story. But this one is good for other reasons. This story concerns the fear the Brandt/Decker family feel when little Catherine's long lost (and mysterious) family surfaces--which threatens the possibility that she will be able to remain with Sara. And we see Frank Malloy being increasingly accepted by Sara's family, as well. The mystery is quite good--kept me guessing.

The characters are well-drawn, the plot engaging, and I heartily recommend this as a great listen!
