The legendary Edgar Nominated author writes the Gaslight Series , set in the turn-of-the city of New York and featuring midwife Sarah Brandt.

Victoria Thompson has worked on stage both in Los Angeles and around the United States. She says that she became enchanted by New York City and specifically the Greenwich village while one of her daughters attended NYU’s school of Arts. After reading many books about the village and spending many hours enjoying shopping, dining and wandering the streets of the city, she became permanently hooked.

Mark’s Place published in March 2000 and the Murder in Chelsea published in May 2013.

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 am currently reading your Gaslight series, Murder on Pleasant Avenue. As a general rule I go to our local library that has an excellent selection of your books, but I have recently discovered they do not have all of them. I will be requesting the last three of this series which will include your newest one coming out end of this month. While reading Murder on Pleasant Avenue, l was reminded of the small community I am currently living in which has a huge salute to the Italian community as immigrants. There is a small Park with statues of immigrants coming in, I don’t know the entire history of this area but it was initially fully native American and one of the main streets leading through downtown was part of the “Trail of Tears” (possibly) we are surrounded by two Rivers on either side of us and had a major immigrant explosion in the area due to these rivers bringing in immigrants and the beginning of the railroad era. I have family who grew up here and an uncle and his father who may or may not have had Italian ancestry that were very big into the railroad in this community, at that time. I grew up about 25 minutes down the road and a smaller community which has an equally huge history but very different. It has a giant history a Circus lore and the community still annually has a circus in July. It was initially started for the children of the community to keep them occupied in the summer and has grown to have one of the largest parades in the US, as well as a very well-trained children’s circus originally trained by former professional circus performers. Something I recommend everyone visiting at least once in their lifetime. We also have connections with Chicago and the gangster area as John Dillinger managed to rob our police headquarters and who stayed at a now non-existent “fancy hotel” downtown, which by the way is a newer building and houses the current police headquarters! As a almost 77 year-old woman I definitely have stories to tell handed down from my father who was a child during the depression and visited John Dillinger at his hotel room (who also told me as a child, got to see those “fancy ladies” in Dillinger’s room at the card table with the guys!) and sold him candy so that he could buy groceries to put food on his mother’s table! This is an interesting area between these two towns and not that far from Chicago. There may be some story lines in these communities you might be interested in and I thought I’d let you know. You can Google Logansport,Indiana on their Italian immigration and railroad history and you can also Google the tiny community of Peru Indiana and their circus history. They have a wonderful festival in July and two museums dedicated to the circus history and the community. Sorry this is so long but I just wanted you to take a peek at these two communities you might find some good stories! We are after all just a few hours away from Chicago a day trip as it were! Loving your books, keep on writing!

    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!

  4. Joan owens: 2 years ago

    Started me reading again thankyou so mich

  5. JoAnn Ruehl: 3 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: 3 years ago

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

    • Michelle W: 3 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.

  7. Lorraine Hardman: 3 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: 3 years ago

      Not completely necessary but recommended.

  8. JNWesner: 6 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!
