    Victoria Thompson is definitely one of my favourite writers and I love her „Gaslight Mystery“ series. In „Murder on Sisters’ Row“ Midwife Sarah Brand is called to deliver a baby. Secretly, the new mother tells her the house she’s staying at is a brothel, where she will be forced to work as a prostitute as soon as she recovered from birth. She begs Sarah to help her and her baby to escape and of course Sarah is (again) in the middle of trouble. The two main characters Sarah Brandt and Detective Frank Malloy slowly but surely grow closer with every book (YAY :) and I really love Mrs. Ellsworth and the girls. I also like, how Sarahs parents (especially her Mother) find their place in Sarah’s „new“ life after years of having no contact at all.

    *SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS* This is book 13 of Victoria Thompson’s “Gaslight Mysteries” and it’s still not boring. On the contrary. I’m still not able to put the book away once I’ve started. Okay, I really think that Frank should seriously stop wondering how Sarah becomes involved in his cases in pretty much every single chapter and just accept that that’s the way it’s gonna be, because let’s be honest: that won’t change. Otherwise I’m pretty sure we readers will stop reading, because cases with Frank but WITHOUT Sarah would be like Holmes without Dr. Watson. So, there. I mean, if he wants to, he can, of course, aks that himself all the time, but in “Murder on Sisters’ Row” it got so repetitive that I consciously noticed it, and that it started to irritate me. I mean, of course, he’s allowed to worry about Sarah, but maybe he can worry in different ways? That aside, I love how Frank and Sarah manage to argue quite fiercely and still come out at the other end NOT hating each other. Or have the reader hating one of them. That’s rare. I had a short WTF-moment, when Sarah – who’d had helped Frank with a lot of cases so far, and had used her common sense (well, more or less) – suddenly divulged the information about Rahab’s Daughters and Mrs. van Orner to Mrs. Walker. Willingly and (apparently) unthinkingly. I mean, yes, she’s from wealthy parents and all that, but as a midwife she isn’t a stranger to crime and crooks and violent people. That was just… I don’t know. Rubbed me the wrong way. At the end… Yeah, well. I really don’t know who appalled me more: Amy for being the mean little bitch she was, or Mr. van Orner and Miss Yingling for being complete assholes. I can honestly say that Amy’s death was almost worth a celebration. I understand completely that poor women didn’t have much of a choice back in these days. I don’t judge Amy for becoming a prostitute or “just” a mistress or whatever. But I’m firmly with Frank on that matter: many women had it even worse and not all of them became stupid, arrogant, hideous bitches like Amy. As for Mr. van Orner and Miss Yingling: for their meanness and furtiveness alone I’d just have LOVED to see them rot away in jail, dying poor and with nothing left. Wankers! In the future I hope to see a bit more of Sarah’s parents again. I don’t like her father all that much, but I really like her mother.
