The Gaslight Mysteries series by Victoria Thompson features Sarah Brandt, a midwife and Frank Malloy, a Police Detective. In the Murder at Astor Palace, Sarah Brandt, was about to participate in something unusual-searching for justice.

Sarah meets Sergeant Frank who was a cop in the city of New York. Frank Malloy has never known any other life apart from that of being a cop. During those latter days, cops were poorly paid and they only preferred to investigate crimes of those who could manage to give a good reward.

Frank had dreams of becoming an officer in the army, a position which he had to pay a substantial amount of bribe and so he was busy saving money wisely for that purpose. He didn’t have the time to expose the crime concerning the killing of a young girl whose family could not afford to pay him but Sarah Brandt didn’t want to let him shun away from his duty.

Changing the mentality of a man like Frank was not an easy task but Sarah managed to convince him. The two later realize that they have had trouble in their past which involved the demise of a loved one. In addition, they both wanted success in life. Despite their different backgrounds as well as their social class, they both learn to respect one another and soon they discover that they can work together.

In the second book of the Gaslight Mysteries-the Murder on Saint. Mark’s Place, Sarah who had experienced both birth and death, suffering and joy and even murder as a midwife on the crime prone streets of the city of New York. While thinking that she had been hired by the German citizen Agnes Otto to welcome a new life, Sarah is welcomed by shocking news about an untimely death. It emerges that Agnes’ young sister Gerda had developed the attitude of extravagance.She would occasionally trade her company fortunes for luxurious gifts and evening’s entertainment. As a result of her sudden death, it was suspected that it was one of her boyfriends.

No one seemed to care about the death of a careless girl like Gerda except Sarah. She vowed to expose her killer. To actualize this, she turns to Frank Malloy for help. As the two started out their investigation which led from the bright lighted streets of the Island of Coney to the beautiful homes on Fifth Avenue, they soon discover that their common passion to seek justice for the oppressed could cost them dearly one day.

Through her books, Victoria has earned worldwide recognition. Her book Murder On The Fifth Avenue was nominated for the Agatha Award in 2013 as the Best Historical Mystery. Even though the book didn’t win the major award, the nomination by Malice Domestic was a milestone. Additionally, Victoria Thompson has won the RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award of 2011 for her outstanding work in mystery fiction. Her book the Murder on Saint. Mark’s Place was nominated for an Edger Award in 2001 by Mystery Writers of America. Again, Murder On Astor Palace was nominated for the best First Mystery Award in 1999 by Romantic Times Magazine Reviewer’s Choice Awards. Lastly, her novel Murder in Chelsea was also nominated for Agatha Awards for the best Historical Mystery.

In conclusion, Victoria is still in writing and all her fans are bound to expect more inspiration and motivation from her works of art.

    I love your books! Your Gaslight mystery books are a pleasure to read. Really gets me thinking about what might be to come. Thank you for writing such great books!

    Started me reading again thankyou so mich

  4. JoAnn Ruehl: 2 years ago

    I agree w/JN all the way. Have read all the above and have started Murder on Wall Street. BUT I have a problem – I was reading one on the newer books on Kindle – the one about the cigar store girl who married Poldack who was killed and also his partner. I accidentally deleted it w/o knowing who did it and what Frank & Sarah thought about Frank’s new business and what they brought home for the children for Xmas. I can’t remember this title. Can you help? It’s driving me batty. Love this series

    In the 3rd book in the gaslight series they mention about Sarah having attended the same hose before and discovering a body in the room on the right. Neither of the previous 2 books mention Sarah discovering a body in an upper class house.
    The first book the girls body was in a lodging house, the grooms body was in the stables, the abortionist was a lower class and the father and daughter were struck by lightning. In the second book the victims were low class. Is there another book between murder in St Marks Place and murder on gramercy Park.

    • Graeme: 2 years ago

      Hi Michele – just want to confirm there are no books in between those two. The above is the correct order.

    • Michelle W: 2 years ago

      I was puzzled by that too, then I remembered the woman who was an abortionist was found murdered in a higher class neighbourhood.

  6. Lorraine Hardman: 2 years ago

    IV just started reading your book, now i want to keep reading. the gaslight series are great. but do i have to start at the beginning?

    • Graeme: 2 years ago

      Not completely necessary but recommended.

  7. JNWesner: 5 years ago

    Frank was saving to buy a position in the New York City police department, not the military services. And it’s “Murder on Fifth Avenue” without “the.”
    As anyone who has read this far might figure out, her Gaslight series is exceptional. Her characters are appealing and realistic, her settings and details are meticulously researched. I strongly recommend reading them in sequence, as events in one book impact subsequent novels. I just read the summaries of each book in the series (on her own website) and found to my delight that we have nine books yet to read!
