I have believed that this series was getting progressively better with each new book. While this one was still good, I just could not get as enthusiastic about it as some past ones. In this story, Sarah Brandt is called to the Little Italy neighborhood in NYC to deliver a baby. However, the child's birth quickly opens up a family crisis and murder, and Sarah is drawn in, along with her friend Frank Malloy of the police department, in having to try to sort out what has happened.
I will say that this narrator has greatly improved, so that helped the book move along at a good pace. But even that did not make up for what was missing. This book had a lot of good focus on the characters involved in the crime, but there was little--almost no-- interaction with the characters I have come to enjoy in the other books. I especially missed the interactions with Frank's son and mother. The story if a good one--if you have never listened to a book in this series you would not miss much by starting here, at the 8th one. But I guess I'll just say that it was not my favorite in the series. I hope future ones will return to the more usual mix of Sarah and Frank's personal lives mixing in more with the rest of the story.
