Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-06-01)

The murder of a wealthy, influential businessman has Det. Frank Malloy investigating the complications of the dead man's family life and rivalries between two schools for the deaf. The case has personal ramifications for Malloy as his own son attends one of the schools. Thompson's 12th historical (after Murder on Waverly Place) set in turn-of-the-century New York City and featuring Malloy and midwife Sarah Brandt skillfully balances several unusual plot lines: a secret pregnancy, the tense conflict among educators on how to teach the deaf (sign language Cs. lip reading), and an ongoing relationship between the victim's deaf daughter and her tutor.

Verdict: Thompson embellishes her beautifully constructed mysteries with little-known historical tidbits; her long-running series will offer rewarding reading to fans of Rhys Bowen and Cordelia Frances Biddle. [See Prepub Mystery, LJ 2/1/10.]
