In this compelling Gaslight Mystery by Edgar Award-nominated author Victoria Thompson, a lady of means helps midwife Sarah Brandt rescue a young woman and her newborn.

Midwife Sarah Brandt braves the dangers of the tenements in nineteenth-century New York to help the impoverished and, with Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy, bring to justice the guilty who prey on them. Now, this latest novel finds Sarah compelled to save an expectant mother from a fate worse than death.

Summoned to an elegant house to deliver a baby, Sarah finds that her patient is actually in a brothel. The young woman in labor reveals that she is being held against her will and forced to prostitute herself—and that the madam intends to get rid of the baby.

To rescue the new mother and her infant, Sarah secures the assistance of Mrs. Vivian Van Orner, a woman of means known for her charitable work. But their success comes at a high price when Mrs.Van Orner is found murdered.

With Malloy’s help, Sarah’s investigation uncovers some unpleasant truths about the victim and her charity—as well as the woman and child whom Sarah risked her own life to save.
