Publisher's Summary

In this Gaslight Mystery from the national best-selling author of Murder in Murray Hill, midwife Sarah Brandt and Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy investigate foul play in the secretive high-society world of 19th-century New York City....
In the midst of Sarah and Frank's wedding preparations, Sarah accompanies her mother on a condolence call to the Upper West Side, where Charles Fairfax, the son of family friends, has died unexpectedly after suffering from a mysterious disease. It is a tragic and all too common story - or so it seems. Charles' father asks to speak with Sarah privately. He believes his son was poisoned and would like Sarah and Frank to look into the matter with the utmost discretion.
Putting their own personal affairs on hold, Sarah and Frank soon learn that not everyone wants to know more about Charles's death, particularly if he was murdered. As they unravel secrets that reach back to the War Between the States, they also discover that they are in the company of a very present danger....

EXCELLENT!

Good series. The plot was very interesting. With plots and subplots which I find very intriguing indeed. Victoria Thompson is a wonderful writer and Suzanne performed the different characters giving them individual personalities and voices. I am waiting patiently for the next book which will be published in November.

I loved it! they're finally married!

the way this whole story has developed with Frank and Sarah and all they've been through and falling in love and getting married is pure genius. I love this writing and will continue to read every one you ever write.
