The ninth in the Edgar(r) Award-nominated series featuring midwife Sarah Brandt and Detective Sergeant Malloy in turn-of-the-century New York City. Sarah Brandt has made her uneasy way to Chinatown to deliver a baby. There she meets a group of Irish women who, completely alone at Ellis Island, married Chinese men in the same predicament. But even as a new century dawns, New Yorkers still cling to their own kind, scorning children of mixed races.

And when the missing girl is found dead in a Chinatown alley, Sarah and Malloy have ample suspects in her murder-from both sides of Canal Street.

Though Sarah has promised that she would stay out of detecting, she finds herself once again in a murder case, though I'd say she is more in the outer parameters versus smack dab in the middle.This is the first book in which Sarah takes more of a backseat and Frank is shown a bit more doing his job....

3.5 Murder in Chinatown (Gaslight Mysteries, #9)
Despite the fact that I pegged the killer as soon as he or she made their first appearance, I still really enjoyed this book. I'm actually torn as to whether to award 3 or 4 stars... 3 1/2 would be my ideal rating. (And please...can we move the development of the Sarah/Frank relationship along a...
