Murder in Murray Hill Synopsis
When facing injustice, the residents of nineteenth-century New York City’s tenements turn to midwife Sarah Brandt and Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy to protect their rights. Now, as the Edgar® and Agatha Award–nominated series continues, the two must track down a cruel criminal preying on the hopes and dreams of innocent women…

Frank Malloy has never known any life other than that of a cop, but his newfound inheritance threatens his position within his department. While trying to keep both his relationship with Sarah and his fortune under wraps, he’s assigned to a new case—finding a missing young woman for her worried father, Henry Livingston.

It seems the girl had been responding to “lonely hearts” ads in the paper for months before she disappeared. Her father thinks that she’s eloped with a deceptive stranger, but Malloy fears the worst, knowing that the grifters who place such ads often do much more than simply abscond with their victims. But as Sarah and Malloy delve deeper into a twisted plot targeting the city’s single women, it’s their partnership—both professional and private–that winds up in the greatest peril…

Praise for Murder in Murray Hill
“As always, that location and time are brought to vivid life, and it is amazing how that is accomplished without once slowing down the story.” –Carstairs Considers

“The outcome of the case was extraordinary… I also delighted in Frank and Sarah’s new relationship, providing some balance to a story that needed that sunshine. I loved it.” –Blue Mood Café

“Painful truths, both personal and political emerge by [the] mystery’s end about the fate and reputation of women in New York’s gaslight era. A highly creative solution is found. This series continues highlighting a time and place and the personal lives of its charismatic sleuths”. –Historical Novel Society
