Murder in Chelsea

Murder in Chelsea

by

Sarah Brandt is shattered when she learns that a woman has inquired at Hope’s Daughters Mission for Catherine, the abandoned child she has taken as her daughter. The woman claims she was Catherine’s nursemaid, now acting on behalf of the girl’s mother to reunite them.

Unwilling to simply hand Catherine over to a complete stranger, Sarah asks Malloy to investigate. But when he goes to interview the woman at her tenement in Chelsea, he finds she has been murdered.

Though her death leaves Sarah’s claim to Catherine unchallenged, her sense of justice compels her to work with Malloy to find the killer. Their search takes them from the marble mansions of the Upper West Side to the dilapidated dwellings of lower Manhattan and into the deepest and darkest secrets of Catherine’s past.

And while Malloy helps Sarah determine the fate of the child she loves, he faces a challenge of his own—and his decision could change both their lives forever…

    I did enjoy this latest Sarah Brandt mystery, but I have to admit that I figured out the murderer(s)? early on in the book. But that did not spoil the book for me as I so enjoy Ms. Thompson's writing ...

    The primary problems with this are two: anachronisms and repetition. The detectives go and interview someone. Then they go home and discuss it, point by point, adding nothing to their or our knowledge...

    The last few books in this series have been kind of lagging in spark. None of them have been bad, but they haven't been the "can't put it down" quality of cozy mysteries I'm used to expecting. This is...

    I didn't enjoy this one and found the ending to be contrived, which took away from the anticipation. I can't believe the author couldn't have found some better way to go about things where Sarah, Fran...
