Murder in Little Italy (Gaslight, Bk 8)
reviewed on + 408 more book reviews

An outstanding historical series....In this addition Sarah Brandt is summoned to deliver a baby that is thought to be premature....In actuality the healthy baby boy is full term...the problem - the "father" cannot be the father....There are enough tensions and hatreds between the Irish mother and the Italian (supposed) father's relatives to fill Malloy's jail when the baby's mother is found dead the day after the delivery. She has, of course been murdered. Malloy is charged with solving this political hotbed PDQ....never mind that there are outside influences from Tammeney Hall...the "Black Hand" and riotous gangs....Malloy is also given permission by Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt to officially reopen the case of the murder of Dr. Thomas Brandt.....
