Murder on Bank Street By Victoria Thompson


I have been a fan of the Gaslight Mysteries since I read Murder on Astor Place, the first in the series. The unsolved murder of Sarah Brandt’s husband has been a background theme in each of the 9 previous books. In Murder on Bank Street that 4 year old mystery is solved. I did not find the story as gripping as pervious books but was glad to see Sarah get some closure over her husband’s death. I have called these gentle mysteries and Murder on Bank Street follows the same theme. I enjoyed the book and was glad to see that another book in the Gaslight Series is soon to be published in hardcover. Murder on Bank Street is being released in paperback.

Berkley Prime Crime published Murder on Bank Street by Victoria Thompson in 2008.

The books can be read as a stand-alone but will read better in the order published. The books in the series are:

Murder on Astor Place
Murder on St. Mark’s Place
Murder on Gramercy Park
Murder on Washington Square
Murder on Mulberry Bend
Murder on Marble Row
Murder on Lenox Hill
Murder in Little Italy
Murder in Chinatown
Murder on Bank Street

Murder on Waverly Street has just been released. It is on my to be read list.
