Murder on Astor Place: a Gaslight Mystery by Victoria Thompson

Reviewed by Claire Daley

Murder on Astor Place is a gaslight mystery that introduces Sarah Brandt — a midwife who came from the upper classes of Manhattan society. It takes place at the turn of the century in the tenements of Manhattan. If you like the history of New York (Manhattan) and the way society treated the classes, you will enjoy this read. Of course, a murder is involved and the romantic sparks between Sarah and the police officer Frank Malloy. Easy read for the summer or anytime.

How many stars does the book deserve?: ☆☆☆☆
