      Finally, the murder of Dr. Brandt is solved! I say it every time, but this series is just the best.The character development in this book was so great - I loved learning more about Maeve and having her step up as a main character. I know there are only good things to come with this series and I can’t wait to read them all! Good thing I accidentally maybe purchased all the books already😬

      In Murder on Bank Street, we finally find out who killed Sarah's husband. These are not the most complex mysteries, but are perfect for a quick weekend read after a hectic and draining week, and do offer some surprises. The familiarity is comforting, and I like to see how the relationships develop, and I like that there are different types of relationships that are explored. Although, this is possibly the slowest developing romance I've ever read, and I'm really impatient for that to finally hap [...]

      Ok, this book was incredibly anti-climactic and the series is frustrating me to no end in terms of the romantic escalation.First, the plot was good and well looked forward to - I mean we've been with Sarah for the last 9 books and were curious as to kill her husband and wanted closure for her. I wanted the closure so that she could move on.BUTI thought she'd be involved! Of all the cases for her to be involved in it was this one. But no, Maeve was the one who did all of the investigating and all [...]

      3 1/2 starsYes, this book had some problems… but I still enjoyed it.While I appreciated the methodical detective work that was being done to solve the murder of Dr. Tom Brandt, I was having a hard time with it because it was all so unnecessary! Wouldn’t it have made much more sense just to have the witness ID the guy? Instead, everyone seemed to be running around, spinning their wheels. (view spoiler)[Why didn’t Malloy just have Danny identify the man he took Dr. Brandt to meet in that all [...]

      This is the 10th book in the Gaslight Mystery Series. All take place in different areas in New York City, this one during the 1890's. Sarah Brandt is a widowed midwife who serves the poorest of the city. Her presumed boyfriend is Police Detective Frank Malloy. (I say presumed as this is the slowest developing romance I have ever read in any series.) In this book, there is no new murder. The focus is on solving the 4 year old murder of Sarah's husband Dr. Tom Brandt. Although Sarah does not becom [...]

      Wow, we finally got to know what really happened four years ago when Dr. Tom Brandt has been murdered. What a rocky road to justice! I was shocked and heartbroken when I read the last chapters of this book. Now I'm curious if this will lead to a happy end for Sarah and Frank but I guess I have to be patient and just read the next books. Well done, Mrs. Thompson!!

    • Lynne Tull says:

      This is one of the best stories of this series. Frank is actually working to find Sarah's husband's (Dr. Brandt) killer. Sarah for the most part keep out of the way. That leaves Maeve to help. This model actually reminds me of Anne Perry's series with Thomas and Charlotte Pitt. Thomas is the policeman; Charlotte is his wife and helper, and Gracie, their maid, joins in to solve the mystery. Recommend!

    • Irrlicht says:

      Too less Sarah and waaaay too much Maeve. And “Irational Maeve”, at that.But I loved Frank and “his” Pinkerton detectives (male and female !)– as always – and the solution of Tom Brandt’s murder was well, not exactly breathtaking regarding the Who, but the whole story behind the case (especially who was actually responsible for Tom’s murder and why) was extremely emotional and crushing. A very good read, but still. Three stars only, because Maeve seriously pissed me off at times [...]

      The tenth book in the Gaslight Mystery series finally sees a long running plot thread come to a close. Since early on in the series, maybe book two or three, Malloy has been investigating the (now) four year old murder of Sarah's husband, mostly in his spare time. This book sees the payoff on his diligent work. While I am glad that the murder has finally been solved and that Sarah has the answers to some long held questions, this book was my least favorite of the series. A huge reason for that i [...]

      Frank is looking into the murder of Dr. Tom Bryant. Sarah's father, Felix Dexter has offered fund the investigation. Frank has learn the father one of his patients killed him. He has narrowed his search to one four men. Leave goes undercover to help determine who is the killer. Like all the Gaslight Mysteries this story is well written and all the characters are designed delope.

    • Julie says:

      This could possibly be the last of the "Gaslight" murder series and if so, I will really miss them. I highly recommend this series to any true mystery fan.

    • Simone says:

      We finally got the answer!!! It’s about time. There is no need to read Books 1 though 9 in order to follow the mystery of who killed Dr Brandt, this book stands alone in that way, however if you do read the books in order presumably you will be extra interested in finding out the answer because you will be more emotionally invested in Sarah and her story.Ironically, this installment didn’t focus on Frank and Sarah as much as previous books despite the fact that the plot was Frank’s investi [...]

    • Jennie says:

      this is the second gaslight mystery novel that i've read, and i enjoyed it just as much as the first! this is a great historical fiction/mystery series set in turn-of-the-century new york. the characters are always interesting and funny (malloy can be a typical man at times, which i think may be kinda the point, because all of the strong female characters are obviously the stars in this series). this was an easy and fun read; however, i definitely didn't guess a specific part of the ending (very [...]

    • Lam says:

      I'm halfway through this series now, so I guess it's time to weigh in. Obviously, I'm hooked, though I can't give the books more than three stars because they are essentially formulaic. I do love the setting--late-19th-century New York City--the main character, a midwife who has rejected her upper-class parents' wish that she give up her career, and the slow-boiling romance between the upper-class Sarah and the Irish cop, Frank, with whom she keeps getting drawn into solving cases. The writing i [...]

      Moving right along. Ten down and eight to go! Yes, I am repeating myself once again, but I have to say that Detective Frank Malloy and Midwife Sarah Brandt are two of my favorite fictional characters!Book number ten of Victoria Thompson’s Gaslight Series takes us to Bank Street. Frank Malloy is determined to solve a four year old case that involves the murder of Sara Brandt’s husband. In order to accomplish this, Frank must team up with the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Together they set out o [...]

      4.5 Four years ago, Sarah Brandt's doctor husband, Tom was killed. Now, Malloy wants to find the killer. With Sarah's knowledge of his endeavors, he sets out to solve a cold case. The murder wasn't pursued by the police at the time of the murder as no one paid the police to care enough. As the investigation continues, Malloy, who would like a future with Sarah, doesn't know if the evidence/information he is finding out will put Sarah's mind at rest or devastate her. Another really good story in [...]

    • Fran says:

      The Gaslight Mystery series is truly addictive! Once again, I'm staying up way after my usual bedtime because I just could not stop reading.Ms. Thompson doesn't shy away from the ugly side of life and often, the characters she introduces into her books are evil beyond words. And because she makes you feel for the good guys, it makes it even more painful and unbearably sad when the evil touches them. It was so painful reading the last few chapters of this book, even though I had correctly guessed [...]

    • StacieHaden says:

      Finally! Dr. Tom Brandt's murder is solved! My favorite so far, and I've enjoyed this whole series. The ending had me itching like a case of poison ivy to read the next one. It's on hold for a library eBook, but the second it's available I'll put aside any other book. I can't wait to see what happens with Sarah and Malloy.My opinion: These should be read in order, for the character and story build up.New York 1897

    • Karry says:

      OK, this one was one of the very best in the whole series!!! The search for the killer of Sarah's husband is on in earnest and everyone's getting involved. What a whopping good story. We're continuing with the next in the series now that we're half way though. Keep them coming Victoria!

    • Susie Marino says:

      In this book we finally find out who killed Dr Brandt. Hopefully with this revelation Sarah can finally move on with her life and find romance.

      Cute story

    • Kathie says:

      This is my favorite book so far in this series. I like the addition of new characters and greater involvement of old characters.

    • Ann says:

      This book kept me guessing until the end. Great addition to the series

    • Mae says:

      Totalmente diferente a todos los demás! Tenemos prácticamente a otra protagonista en este libro, y no nos decepciona. Volví a estar emocionada por la serie! Yupi!

    • Lisa says:

      The mystery of Tom brandt is finally solved is a twisty turvey way I didn’t see coming.

    • Janifowose says:

      In this book we finally find out what happened to Sarah's husband, and dare I say there will be a new development in Frank and Sarah's relationship?
