Description

This program includes an author's note read by the author. The follow-up to Murder on Millionaires' Row, Erin Lindsey's second historical mystery follows Rose Gallagher as she tracks a killer with shocking abilities through Gilded Age Manhattan. Rose Gallagher always dreamed of finding adventure, so her new life as a freshly-minted Pinkerton agent ought to be everything she ever wanted. Only a few months ago, she was just another poor Irish housemaid from Five Points; now, she's learning to shoot a gun and dance the waltz and throw a grown man over her shoulder. Better still, she's been recruited to the special branch, an elite unit dedicated to cases of a paranormal nature, and that means spending her days alongside the dashing Thomas Wiltshire. But being a Pinkerton isn't quite what Rose imagined, and not everyone welcomes her into the fold. Meanwhile, her old friends aren't sure what to make of the new Rose, and even Thomas seems to be having second thoughts about his junior partner. So when a chilling new case arrives on Rose's doorstep, she jumps at the chance to prove herself - only to realize that the stakes are higher than she could have imagined. Six delegates have been murdered at a local political convention, and the police have no idea who-or what-is responsible. One thing seems clear: The killer's next target is a candidate for New York City mayor, one Theodore Roosevelt. Convinced that something supernatural is afoot, Rose and Thomas must track down the murderer before Roosevelt is taken out of the race-permanently. But this killer is unlike any they've faced before, and hunting him down will take them from brownstones to ballrooms to Bowery saloons. Not quite comfortable anywhere, Rose must come to terms with her own changed place in society-and the fact that some would do anything to see her gone from it entirely.

Professional reviews

"The year is 1886, and narrator Barrie Kreinik breathes life into the Gilded Age in Manhattan. Agents Rose Gallagher and Thomas Wiltshire of the Pinkerton Special Branch, dedicated to investigations related to the paranormal, get a new case that involves finding a man who plans to use his supernatural powers to assassinate 28-year-old mayoral candidate Theodore Roosevelt. Kreinik's performance evokes the sights and smells of the community and excels at conveying the dichotomy between the wealthy and the impoverished immigrant families of Five Points. Whether male or female, Kreinik makes people's social and immigration status obvious just by their speech. Listeners will feel a deep connection to this unique paranormal mystery.
