Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A plucky group of early-twentieth-century detectives takes on the Black Hand…with telling historical details and the usual pleasures provided by the regulars’ interpersonal dynamics.” Kirkus Reviews
“Cleverly plotted…Thompson makes effective use of real-life figures, such as Joseph Petrosino, one of the NYPD’s first Italian officers. Fans of husband-and-wife sleuthing partners such as Thomas and Charlotte Pitt will be pleased.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Suzanne Toren’s star-quality performance makes the 23rd episode in Victoria Thompson’s Edgar and Agatha Award-nominated Gaslight mysteries delightful listening…Toren handles the early-twentieth-century diction perfectly, while descriptions of places, events, and people become almost cinematic. Toren is simply superb delivering this well-loved series.” AudioFile
