Publisher's Summary

In Victoria Thompson's Murder on Waverly Place, midwife-sleuth Sarah Brandt is surprised by her mother's desire to attend séances in an undesirable section of New York City. During one dark session, death strikes a participant while all are holding hands around the table. Now it's up to Sarah - and her detective sergeant friend - to deliver her mom from scandal and ferret out the murderer.


What the Critics Say

"Strong characters, clever plotting, and the hint of the supernatural that comes with a story centered around spiritualism make this page-turner a must for both fans and readers new to the series." (Booklist)

Not Great

The story could have been so much better but it was bogged down by too much sitting and talking. The narriator also didn't help. She spoke very fast at odd times, had a cliche Italian accent and child's voice and for some reason, one of the older characters talked with a high-pitched trill. Not cerebrial, not exciting, not well-narriated, not worth it.
