When Harvard professor and forensic scientist Will Hewitt autopsies the victims, he discovers that Munro was murdered. Dr. Hewitt needs help navigating the city and its complex society to find the killer. He turns to governess Nell Sweeney, who understands the world of the rich and how their power can be used to hide their secrets. The investigation leads to the conclusion that these men were concerned more with keeping some things hidden than with the loss of their money. How they were tied together makes for a chilling climax to a mesmerizing mystery.

1869 Gold Crash, the Haves and the Have Nots
Probably the best so far in the series, book four, brings Will and Nell together to investigate the death of two prominent Boston men . . . Noah Bassett and Philip Munro . . . Will, now having taken a job at Harvard as a forensic scientist and professor, has done the autopsies and is not satisfied that they did indeed kill themselves over the gold crash and loss of their fortunes . . . on first blush, the two men do not appear to be connected . . . but upon further investigation, Will and Nell find that the two families are joined in more ways than one . . . Noah, an old friend of Viola's, Will's mother, was a kind and gentle man, the father of two grown daughters, had become a rather sad and depressed man over the years, particularly since the loss of his son in the war and then his wife to cancer . . . Philip Munro was a financial adviser . . . flush with money . . . and forever on the lookout to enter the world of "old Boston money" and society, which theretofore had rejected him . . . a good friend with Will Hewitt's younger brother, Harry, Philip and Harry were birds of a feather . . . drinkers and carousers . . . the atmosphere of 1869 Boston are brought to life by the author . . . the gentle interaction between Will and Nell as they work together, solve the case and their visits with Grace (Will's daughter) are increasingly heart warming . . . fluctuating between hopeful and sad . . . loved the end of the book . . . but I'm REALLY hoping for the next one to come to Audible SOON!!!

Another incomplete series
If you could sum up Murder on Black Friday in three words, what would they be?
I have never written a review and fist I would like to say I did love the books available in this series. This is a review of audible and the lack of so many complete series. Many are missing the first or some in the middle or like this one all after number 4. If there were bad reviews I could better understand but with at least a 4 star rating this should not be an issue. Thank you for letting me vent. Carry on
