Murder in Murray Hill
Soon he finds out that many other women who answered the ads are missing. With fiancee Sarah Brandt's help, they search for the women while trying to plan their future. This has become one of my favorite historical mystery series. I love the atmosphere of turn of the century New York and the fictional incorporation of some of the most famous real life people.
The author has done a great job of developing her characters over the course of the series. This book can be read as a standalone but I feel like this is a series best read in order. I would recommend reading the first book, Murder on Astor Place, to get a feel for where the characters started. It's not a murder, it's a missing person: Grace Livingston, spinster. But just when he has a plan in place for finding Grace, he's fired. Fired because word has leaked out that he is the beneficiary of a multi-million-dollar bequest and this is s New York and the jealousy among his peers is palpable.
So when Grace's father hires him as a private investigator, Frank embarks on his new career. What Frank and Sarah discover is appalling: sex slavery going on in the Murray Hill neighborhood. The author handles the topic with delicacy - much is left to the imagination in the rescued women's sordid tales. But this is the Gilded Age, when blaming the victim was even more common than it is today, and few families will accept the women back with much affection.
This is a riveting tale, despite its overall darkness.
