The latest Gaslight Mystery from the bestselling author
of Murder in Morningside Heights finds Sarah Brandt
and Frank Malloy searching for a connection between a
murdered newsie and a high society woman with dangerous habits.
Frank Malloy’s latest client is the well-dressed Will
Bert. He’s searching for his brother, a newsboy named
Freddie, so he can share his new financial good fortune.
Frank makes quick work of the case and locates Freddie, but
a happy reunion between brothers is not in the cards.
When Will’s name is mentioned, Freddie runs off—only to be
found dead a short time later. Suspicious, Frank tracks down
Will who spins a tale of lust and deceit involving a young
society woman, Estelle Longacre, also recently deceased.
Frank can’t be sure if Estelle’s risky behavior and the
company she kept was to blame, or if her own ruthless family
had a hand in her death.
Frank will need Sarah’s help to unearth the dark secrets of
the wealthy Longacres and to discover if there is a
connection between Estelle and Freddie’s death. Together
they must navigate a perilous underground web of treachery
to find the truth.
