Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dixie | 2/9/2014

    " Best in the series so far! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaret | 2/8/2014

    " This was book 10 in the gaslight series. This book solves the mystery that's been developing since the beginning of the series, the murder of Sarah's husband. I really liked this book even though Sarah played a more minor role in it. Most of the plot revolved around Sarah's live-in nursemaid, Maeve. I didn't mind this because I like Maeve as a character and she was able to go places more logically than if Thompson had tried to make Sarah go. By making Maeve the central "detective" the plot was more plausible. I really enjoyed the mystery and loved the ending. It was not at all what I expected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/2/2014

    " Awesome mystery just like the others! Easy read... finished it in a few hours. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 1/28/2014

    " Ehh....it was just okay. There was no new murder in this book...instead, Frank Malloy investigates the cold case of Sarah Brandt's husband's murder. I thought the ending was kind of far-fetched, but at least we now know what really happened to Dr. Tom Brandt. With the murder case closed, Sarah can now try to move on from his death (and hopefully move forward with her relationship with Frank). :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 1/26/2014

    " I loved this book the first time around and now I am re-reading it so that the characters are all fresh in my mind when I start the newest book in the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marshall Thornton | 1/24/2014

    " really one of the best of the bunch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faith | 1/20/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 1/1/2014

    " A very enjoyable read. Loved the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 12/19/2013

    " I enjoy historical mysteries. For me, this was the 3rd in the series. The other characters got more involved in solving Dr. Brandt's murder than did Sarah. I thought I'd figured it out but I was fooled. A fun quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 stitchnsnitch | 11/26/2013

    " I was glad to see that Victoria Thompson took her time crafting this mystery, since we've waited so long for this murder to be solved! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 9/2/2013

    " Good mystery set in early New York City. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dale | 7/17/2013

    " Ill Bk the murder of Tom Brandt is finally soved with the help of a woman Pinkerton agent named Allie, Sarah and her adopted daughter Maeve who spies on manor home out in the country "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julianne | 6/5/2013

    " Quick and entertaining murder-mystery read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doris Haines | 11/28/2012

    " Excellent mystery..i have started with her first book and now am on the 8th one!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 9/13/2012

    " I loved the story. I am getting really comfortable with the Sarah Brandt mysteries as I was able to figure out the ending to it very early on. I must say, though, that I always enjoy the ride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janiceinbellevue | 7/11/2011

    " a quick run read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eli | 5/7/2011

    " Sarah Brandt didn't come across as all that intelligent. This is the 1st of the Gaslight Series books that I've read & it's the 10th installment, so she just may be off in this episode. And since I like period novels, I didn't have to fight to keep reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melani | 3/1/2011

    " Perfectly satisfying entry into this series!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luckngrace | 2/4/2011

    " I won this book from the GR Tour de Genre Group :D Yeah! It started out well with the mysterious "Old Maid's Disease" and likeable characters but, alas, I guessed the plot before every event and became bored. Good clean gaslight mystery, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 'jean | 8/4/2010

    " Decent mystery. Somewhat melodramatic, perfect for a Victorian period piece. I would give it a 3.5 if I could. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dale | 7/27/2010

    " Ill Bk the murder of Tom Brandt is finally soved with the help of a woman Pinkerton agent named Allie, Sarah and her adopted daughter Maeve who spies on manor home out in the country "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 7/2/2010

    " Good mystery set in early New York City. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 6/4/2010

    " This is #10 in the Gaslight mystery series. We learn the truth about Dr. Barndt's murder. The secondary characters, Maeve and Mrs. Decker become more developed. There are hints that Frank and Sarah's relationship may move forward. Enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine | 5/6/2010

    " Just read thru to book #9, on this series. Didn't think I would enjoy this Author, after reading Anne Perry. But I like these stories fashioned in America's Victorian era. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 2/25/2010

    " Bank Street, since it hardly involved Frank or Sarah or Frank/Sarah interaction was not my favorite. And I felt I was being told a great deal without being shown it. However, this is the only mystery series I really enjoy and I will preorder the next book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 11/10/2009

    " I like these turn of the century novels in part for the glimpse into another era. They don't read like historical fiction, however, and I enjoy them. "
