Brief Description

When a murder hits close to home, Frank finds himself in an unusual position--the prime suspect in the latest installment of the national bestselling Gaslight Mystery series...

Sarah and Frank Malloy are enjoying married life and looking to make their family official by adopting Catherine, the child whom Sarah rescued and has been raising as her daughter. The process seems fairly straightforward, but at the last minute, the newlyweds discover that Parnell Vaughn, Catherine's legal father, has a claim on the child, and his grasping fiancée is demanding a financial settlement to relinquish parental rights. Even though exchanging money for a child is illegal, Frank and Sarah's love for Catherine drives them to comply.

When Frank returns with the money and finds Vaughn beaten to death, all evidence points to Frank as the culprit. A not-quite-famous actor with modest means, Vaughn seems an unlikely candidate for murder, particularly such a violent crime of passion. But Frank soon uncovers real-life intrigue as dramatic as any that appears on stage.

Sarah and Frank enlist those closest to them to help hunt for Vaughn's killer as Frank's own life--and the future of their family--hang in the balance.

  • Victoria Thompson’s Murder on Union Square

    By Carol M Smith
    This is a creatively, complex and thought provoking historical fiction cozy mystery. This book takes the reader in the theater during this time period. You will meet the cast of well crafted actors and actresses. You will meet managers and learn of the syndicate of the acting world at that time. All the characters are well rounded, well developed, three dimensional and interesting characters. Murders, dark secrets, affairs, ghosts, danger, false arrest, adoption laws, adoption papers all combine to make an interesting read. Sarah Brandt Malloy is midwife and Frank Malloy is a retired policeman who does private investigating. Maeve Smith is cares for their children and Frank's mother helps her. Maeve also is runs the supervision of the clinic’s refurbishment. Maeve along with Gino Donatelli, a former policeman who worked with Frank are part of Frank private investigation service. In the process of Sarah and Frank adoption of the child Sarah saved and has been raising, there is a hitch. At he time of Catherine’s birth, her birth mother was not married to the birth father but was legally married to an actor. Although the birth mother is dead, her husband the actor is living and legally considered the father. The adoption can only take place if he signs the adoption papers. Frank takes the papers to the theater for the actor who agreed to sign them. What a shock to discover the actor dead in his dressing room!! What a shock to have another cast member accuse Frank of the murder!! What a tragedy that Frank is arrested for murder!! The story was intriguing with deceit, a second murder, a seance, thrills, chills and who can you believe problem. This is book # 21 in the Gaslight Mystery series. It can be read as a stand alone. I volunteered to read Murder at Union Square. Thanks to the Penguin First-to-Read Program got the opportunity. My opinion is my own.
