Murder on Astor Place by Victoria Thompson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed reading this. My favorite time-period, set in New York and the main character is a midwife born to the Knickerbocker set, so she lives on the cusp of two worlds. And her compatriot in crime detecting is a Copper under the auspicious term of Teddy Roosevelt as NYC Police Commissioner.
It's fast-paced, the characters are well drawn and well written. I will look forward to reading more in the Gaslight Mysteries series.
