The author of Murder on Amsterdam Avenue returns
to nineteenth-century New York City to find Christmas in the
air, a police detective and a midwife with love in their
hearts, and a wealthy newlywed with blood on her handsâ€¦
Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy and Sarah Brandt are not the
only ones who have recently tied the knot. Family friend
Mrs. Oâ€™Neill was delighted when her daughter Una wed the
seemingly wealthy and charming Randolph Pollock. She didnâ€™t
wonder why such an affluent man would want to marry a poor
Irish girl, no matter how pretty she was. But now Mrs.
Oâ€™Neill has a problem.
Pollockâ€™s servants have found their employer bludgeoned to
death with Una cradling his body. Rendered mute by the
horror of her husbandâ€™s death, Una cannot explain what
happened, so the police have charged her with murder and
locked her away in the Tombs to await trial.
Mrs. Oâ€™Neill would like Frank to investigate the case and
save Una, yet with Frank and Sarah still on their honeymoon,
itâ€™s up to the other members of their newly formed household
to do some detective work. But solving the mystery behind
Pollockâ€™s death means first discovering the truth about who
he really isâ€¦
