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 hands…
Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy and Sarah Brandt are not the
only ones who have recently tied the knot. Family friend
Mrs. O’Neill was delighted when her daughter Una wed the
seemingly wealthy and charming Randolph Pollock. She didn’t
wonder why such an affluent man would want to marry a poor
Irish girl, no matter how pretty she was. But now Mrs.
O’Neill has a problem.
Pollock’s servants have found their employer bludgeoned to
death with Una cradling his body. Rendered mute by the
horror of her husband’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. O’Neill would like Frank to investigate the case and
save Una, yet with Frank and Sarah still on their honeymoon,
it’s up to the other members of their newly formed household
to do some detective work. But solving the mystery behind
Pollock’s death means first discovering the truth about who
he really is…
