A Day in the Life of Sarah Brandt Malloy by Victoria Thompson

Murder In Mornigside HeightsMalloy and I have been back from our honeymoon for several weeks now, and we’re both very grateful that my nursemaid, Maeve, and Malloy’s friend from the New York City Police Department, Gino Donatelli, started a detective agency while we were away. Without it, Malloy would’ve been bored to death, since he’d had to resign from the Police Department. Their first really interesting case after officially setting up an office turned out to be one they needed my help on, too. Thank heaven, because quite frankly, I was feeling a little bored myself.

A young woman who was teaching at the Normal School had been murdered. The Normal School is a college for women that trains them to become teachers, and it should be the safest place in the world. Abigail Northrup’s parents had thought so when they agreed to let her work there, especially when she moved in with two of the other female professors. Malloy asked for my help because he thought I’d know more about college than he did because I was raised in a wealthy family. The truth is that the girls I’d grown up with hadn’t even considered going to college. Rich girls went on European tours. College was for middleclass girls who wanted to be able to make their own way in the world without having to rely on finding a husband to support them. They are the New Women, and I was surprised to discover how much I had in common with them.

You may know that I trained as a nurse and a midwife after my sister died in childbirth. This was partly in rebellion against my parents, whom I blamed for my sister’s death, but also because I wanted to do something meaningful with my life. Then I met a handsome young doctor, Tom Brandt, and became his wife. Tom’s murder three years later shattered my perfect life, however, and I was grateful I had a valuable skill I could use to support myself, unlike so many widows who found themselves destitute. Now a whole generation of women were choosing to have a career instead of counting on finding a husband to support them.

Malloy and I learned a lot about these New Women and the world of academia. Abigail had forged some strong relationships at the college, but she had also made some dangerous enemies. Malloy and I needed all our training and a little help from Gino to uncover all of her secrets and bring her killer to justice.


Murder In Morningside Heights is the 19th book in the Gaslight Mystery Series, published by Berkley Prime Crime, May 2016

In the latest from the bestselling author of Murder on St. Nicholas Avenue, former police sergeant Frank Malloy and his wife adjust to life in New York high society as they investigate a death in the field of higher learning. . .

After spending his first few weeks as a private detective by investigating infidelities of the wealthy, Frank has a more serious case at hand.

Abigail Northrup of Tarrytown, New York, was her parents’ pride and joy. After graduating from a prestigious women’s college in Morningside Heights, she took a job there as an instructor. She also joined the ranks of the New Women, ladies planning for a life without a husband in which they make their own decisions and make a difference in the world. Unfortunately, her murder ended all that.

When the police declare the incident a random attack and refuse to investigate further, Abigail’s parents request Frank’s help. Of course, he’ll need Sarah’s assistance as she’s more familiar with the world of academia, and it will be far easier for her to interview the lady professors. Yet difficulties arise as they learn that Miss Northrup may have been an exemplary student and teacher, but she lived in a world of secrets and lies. . .

    The wonderful thing about discovering a series with so many books is having such instant gratification going from one to the next. The downside is when you catch up and have to wait so long for the next installment — but always well worth it 🙂 Both my husband and I enjoy sharing in the adventures of Sarah and Malloy. We’re all caught up, and can’t wait to indulge our detecting fondness with Murder in Morningside Heights!

  51. Lillian Jackson

    I am eager to read Murder in Morningside Heights, the the latest book in the wonderful Gaslight Mystery series. I want to see how Sarah and Frank adjust to married life and life as a wealthy couple. What I enjoy most about these books is all the details about that time period. The author does such a thorough job of researching and presenting how people–especially women–lived and the manners and social demands and restrictions. I get so much from reading this series: mystery, romance, history, and suspense. Great job! I hope I win the autographed copy.

  52. Joan Mcmahon

    I heard about this book coming out and put it on hold at the library. I was 1st for it, read it and got it to the next in line in 4 days. All the books are so great at sharing NYC in the mid 1800s. Love the characters!

  53. Donna Gantt

    I’ve read most of the books in this series and the stories keep me coming back!

I went back and read the first book in the series, “Murder on Astor Place,” and have read in order each Sarah Malloy mystery to date. I’m waiting for the “Murder on Morningside Heights” book, which I’ve ordered. But, I would love to have a signed copy.

  70. Laura Galbo

    I love the Gaslight Series. I’ve read every single book!! I pass my finished books along to friends, we have a mini book club discussing each. Ms.Thompson has done a great job in expanding the character’s role in each novel. Each book although part of a series can ‘stand alone’.
    I’d love an autographed copy of Murder In Morningside Heights.

  71. Thank you so much. I can’t wait to read it.

  72. This sounds like a very good book!

  73. All of Victoria Thompson’s books are absolutely wonderful and I look forward to reading this new one now that it’s available. My bookshelves are overflowing with her books as I can’t part with any of them just in case I want to read them again!

  74. Sounds like a great read.

  75. Kathleen Gilbert

    I love, love Victoria Thompson and this series! I’m starting this book today. All the books in this series have been great. The story line has developed just as I wished for this charming family that grabbed my heart right from the beginning. The mysteries are excellent and this series is everything I like in a historical mystery.

  76. Doward Wilson

    Sounds like another series I need to read! Thanks for the chance to win!

  79. This book sounds amazing. Thank you for the chance to win a copy.

  80. Nanci Kryzak

    I read Murder in Morningside Heights on the day it was released….start to finish. It is as riveting as every other book in the series, as expected. The characters are so multidimensional, and even those who are less than favorites still evoke depths of feeling as their stories unfold. Victoria Thompson is a treasure, and her books will be passed down through generations. I’ve loved them all.

  81. wendynewcomb

    This sounds like an interesting read, thank you for the chance to win a copy.

  82. Karen Hansen

    I have never read this series and would love to. Thanks for the chance .

  83. I have enjoyed each of your previous books. I particularly like the depth of detail you include. It has given me a view of life in that period that I had not previously had. I also like the fact that your story lines avoid the coarse language and sexual explicitness of so many modern mystery writers. You do for New York what Anne Perry does for Victorian and Edwardian England. I’m looking forward to this latest tale.

  84. Alice Montgomery

    I have read many of your books, but the “Gaslight Series” is my favorite. I have read them all in sequence. My problem is that I read faster than you write them and I’ll start off waiting for the paper back, but end up going ahead and get the hardback. So, if I happened to win a copy that would be a plus.

  85. Have not read the series yet – on my to read list now. Thanks

  86. Sounds like an interesting series – love books set in NYC. On my to read list now.

  87. Jean Pennington

    A dear friend introduced me to the Gaslight series two years ago. Since then, I have read and enjoyed each and every book. I can hardly wait for the next book to come out after reading each one! Please submit my name for a signed copy of Murder On Morningside Heights! I can hardly wait to see what happens next! Hope you are enjoying Indiana. My sister and her family live there. Thank you for this wonderful series! I have enjoyed reading the history of New York city.

  88. Always looking for a period mystery. Sounds like a definite must read.

  89. This is new to me and I love it! Love this post and the cover is gorgeous! Thanks for the giveaway.

  90. Sounds like a fabulous read.

  91. Brian Frauenknecht

    I absolutely love this series and this book sounds like a great addition to the series. Thank you Dru for the chance to win it.

  92. Good series.Great cover.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  93. elainehroberson

    I love this series. Thanks for a chance to win a copy.

  94. Vicki Wurgler

    I have not read this series, this book sounds great-she lived in a world of secrets and lies, that got my interest

  95. I fell in love with Sarah from the first book and what a journey it’s been. I cried when Sarah and her beloved Frank married. One of the best things about the books is the very strong women In the time when few woman were.. Would like to win this book.

  96. Cynthia E. Blain

    I don’t believe that I have ever read any books in this series, but I sure had better get moving as I have missed a lot of them, haven’t I Sounds great. I love historical mysteries a lot now after reading a few great ones, and this series sounds wonderful as well.

    Cynthia

  97. I discovered her books a couple of years ago and was hooked. So, now, I’m trying to get copies of her early books and have been buying her recent books. I would love a copy of her latest.

  98. Mari Krampach

    Love the Gaslight mysteries that I have read so far. Trying to catch up to 19, Wow, this one sounds fascinating… thanks for the chance to win a copy.

  99. I just finished Murder on Amsterdam Ave and have ordered Murder on St Nicholas Ave. Have loved this series from the very start. My Mom was born in NYC in 1901 and she and her mother filled me with turn of the century stories about The City in which I grew up. It is wonderful to revisit the time and place those two ladies described for me now that they are gone and I am in my 70’s!

  100. Just finished Murder on Amsterdam Ave and have ordered Murder on St Nicholas Ave. Have loved the series from the very start. My Mom was born in NYC in 1901 and she and my Grandmother told me many stories about early days in The City, as we always called it. I love revisiting the time and place they described as I was growing up in the 50’s-60’s in a place very changed but still inhabited by the buildings and streets of the past. Besides the setting, the characters are like family now and I look forward to the new house and living arrangements of the combined Malloy and Brandt families now that Sarah and Malloy are married.

    • OOPs, I didn’t realize my comment under Katherine P was accepted, it didn’t show up on the stream so I reposted as Sootycat–so sorry–didn’t mean to enter twice!

  101. Celia Fowler

    My goodness — so many comments! I, too, LOVE the Gaslight Mysteries and would be excited to win a copy of Murder in Morningside Heights. Thanks for featuring a day in Sarah’s life!

  102. Betty J Schairer

    I’ve read all of the Gaslight Mysteries and look forward to each new book. Fascinating and suspenseful. The characters, eloquently displayed, make you feel as if you know them, are part of them, and are experiencing their dilemma in each story. I love the books and hope they never end.

  103. I found the Gaslight Series in 2011 when I was dealing with chemo and radiation therapy. From that point on, I was hooked and never looked back. Being born and raised in NYC, this particular series has a special meaning for me. The third avenue El was still in operation when I was born! Thank you for allowing me to escape my reality into this world of yesteryear, at least for a little while.

  104. Melinda Vann

    Always looking forward to another adventure for Sarah and crew!!

  105. I love this series. It reminds me of my family’s roots in New York. I’d love a chance to win.

  106. Renee Wheeler

    I love this series, and this newest book was, as usual, a terrific read. The mysteries are excellent but they are almost secondary for me. I really just love meeting up with Frank and Sarah, the Deckers, Maeve and Gino, Katherine…they’re like old friends after all these years. Thanks for the chance to win!

  107. I love these mysteries and have already read it but would love an autographed copy. Please keep these up — Sarah is so smart and I love her mother!

  108. Christa Kelley

    I would love to win this book. It sounds really good. Maybe I would have a new series to read!

  119. Judy Krueckeberg

    I just discovered & read my first Gaslight mystery a couple weeks ago. I cannot wait to read the next one. I am totally hooked! Ms. Thompson is a remarkable writer! I hope I am lucky enough to win this book.

  120. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

  121. I am so looking forward to this book! I love strong women in life and in fiction! I already know to block out a free day or two when I open a Gaslight series book . . . adventure and sense of time and place make all else fall away.

  122. Laurie Nelson

    At last–now that Sarah and Frank have tied the knot, and the in laws on both sides are supportive, I can’t wait to see how their personal and working relationship develops. And what about Gino and Maeve? A little romance, a good dose of mystery, some vintage NYC- what’s not to love about this series? Can’t wait to rad the next installment!

  123. Great! Another interesting story for this series

  124. I love this series!

    I’ve enjoyed all your Gaslight Mysteries, and my husband is addicted too. Not only do you write a great mystery, but you also provide insight into New York during this era. You also have created a great cast of characters whose interactions are as exciting as the mystery.

  149. Mary Infuso

    I have enjoyed many of the “Gaslight” series. Just finished “Murder on St. Nicholas Ave”. Loved it. would love to win copy of “Murder in Morningside Heights” Especially after reading the “teaser”.

  153. I would love to read this. I am not familiar with the series but I definitely need to be. Thank you.

  154. Kathy West

    I enjoy this series with its likeable characters and clever, believable plots. While each book is a peek at society at that place and during that time, underlying each story is the realization that basic human nature hasn’t changed all that much over the years. Each satisfying ending is like saying goodbye to friends, while already looking forward to their next visit.

  155. Elma Gardner

    I am a diehard “Gaslight” fan and can’t wait to read the newest “Murder”. A signed copy would be outstanding!!

  156. I really enjoy your series. Before I started buying the books for my own collection I would constantly go into my local library looking for all your books. I’m glad you’re still writing them and thoroughly enjoy reading all of them. 🙂

  157. I have not read this series yet and would like to read it as I enjoy new characters.

  160. I have had this on my list for a while now as Historical Mysteries are my absolute favorites. I think this time frame would be really interesting with the clothes, food and all the things that could happen in New York It was a bustling town even back then..ripe for a murder eh? So thank you for the review and the Contest…

  169. I have been looking for a new series to read and this series sounds very interesting.

  170. I’ve only recently discovered this series. I didn’t realize there were so many books! That’s most definitely a great thing! I love series that are about characters, but do NOT really require one to begin reading with the very first book; I also love mysteries. These books are perfect. Plus, the author has a small, spoiled dog. I knew I had found a great author!! 🙂

  171. I can’t wait to read this–I love the series! ❤

  172. I so enjoy historical mysteries because I can learn a little while enjoying the mystery. Thanks for introducing me to this series.

  177. Stephanie J. Adams

    I just finished the kindle version but I would love to win a print copy for my mom. She and I have been reading the Gaslight Mysteries together from the beginning. This was an excellent installment in the series!

  178. I am totally hooked on your Gaslight Mysteries. So much fun to read and just enjoy.
    When a book can make me laugh and even have a tear, and fear for the characters when they get in trouble, it is always worth a read.
    God bless and thanks for sharing your talents as an author.

    I’ve only finished one book in the series but own others to read. I like the hardcovers best (better print size) and have quite a few. The earliest ones are only in paperback. Like Susanne, I’ve acquired them used.

    I have tried other historical mystery authors but this is by far my favorite series. I would love to win a copy of Victoria Thompson’s newest book.

  181. I absolutely love Victoria Thompson’s Gaslight Mysteries! Great author and inspired (also inspiring) characters!
