Murder on St Nicholas Avenue
by Victoria Thompson
This is the first “Gas Light” mystery I have read and it was great. The setting is in the early 1900’s New York City. I found the characters and the setting very interesting and the descriptive writing style of Ms. Thompson just pulls you into the story. Great Read.
