Murder on Sisters' Row is another in Victoria Thompson's "Gaslight Mysteries" series. The setting is 19th century New York, and in this one Sarah Brandt, a midwife, is asked to help deliver a child in a brothel. She gets involved with the young mother and tries to get help from a charity. Soon afterward, the founder of the charity is murdered, and Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy investigates, with Sarah's help. Great setting, and if you like historical mysteries, here's one to check out.
