Publisher's Summary

The Prodigal Son Mission on Mulberry Bend stands as a refuge for girls who otherwise would have to live by selling the only thing they have of value - themselves. The work being done there so impresses midwife Sarah Brandt that she volunteers to help out however she can - with clothes, with medical assistance, and with the organization of a benefit dinner. And when one of the girls is found dead and refused burial because of her former life, Sarah's passion for justice is aroused. Reluctantly, Sergeant Frank Malloy agrees to look into the death, if only to keep Sarah from endangering herself by pursuing the matter. But Sarah cannot be kept out of the investigation, and, just as Malloy feared, her attempts to find the cause of the unfortunate girl's death put her in deadly danger - from an unexpected source.

I just love this series!

The background story of Frank and Sarah is what has me hooked. I admit it wasn’t an instant connection as of Book 1, but I have grown to love the characters and I can’t wait to know what happens next in their lives.

Book 5 moved their story along nicely, but I wish it were a little faster!!! Of course the author does have to drag it out a little, we can’t get their ENTIRE story over and done with in one volume – we need a reason to keep coming back for more.

Being the impatient person I am, I want more and I want it NOW! I am diving into Book 6 right away.

Consistently excellent...

Where does Murder on Mulberry Bend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have happily listened to books 1 through to 5 and enjoyed every moment. On Book 1 it took me a while to get used to the reader's accent, but now her voice is a familiar friend.These are excellent historical crime stories, evoking a New York of the past and studded with splendid characters.Dear Audible, I sincerely hope that books 6, 7 and more are on your planning chart!

Which character – as performed by Callie Beaulieu – was your favourite?

Sarah Brandt, of course - brave and unconventional, sensitive and clever.
