    • Abstract:
      Summary: "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"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1

Rose Gallagher is a Pinkerton agency trainee in this sequel to Murder on Millionaires' Row (2018). She weathers the scorn of some other fledgling agents as she's been partnered with (and has a hopeless crush on) established agent Thomas Wiltshire, who happens to be wealthy. The partners must use their wiles to find a mysterious man—possibly a "shade," or malevolent ghost—who has killed six delegates at the New York City Republican convention, where Theodore Roosevelt is vying for mayoral election. Roosevelt isn't the only luminary here; Rose and Thomas are assisted in their exciting adventures by none other than inventor Nikola Tesla, who creates devices that help the pair detect those who are "lucky," or have supernatural powers. Upon the pair bumping into Mark Twain at Tesla's workshop, readers may wonder if every famous person of the age will make an appearance; this slightly incredible feature is made up for, however, by the wonderful characters and intricately described class divides of the time. For fans of the previous book and of Amanda Allen's Santa Fe Revival mysteries. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2019 May

In the second Rose Gallagher mystery (after Murder on Millionaires' Row), six political delegates are found dead of mysterious causes, and the Pinkertons are on the case. Will the mayoral candidates, including Theodore Roosevelt, be the next targets? Does anyone actually believe that the deaths were isolated cases of typhoid? Rose's enthusiasm for her first big case interrupts her waltz, weapon, and martial arts Pinkerton training, and lands her in precarious predicaments in which Thomas Wiltshire, her former employer, inevitably comes to her aid. The case's dangerous, mystical scenarios criss-cross society and social convention and add to the will-they-or-won't-they romantic tension between Rose and Thomas; their loyalties are tested with each new clue and level of political bribery they uncover. Peppered with Gilded Age celebrities such as Roosevelt, Nikola Tesla, and Mark Twain, this case helps Rose solidify her belief in herself and her career choice. There are also substantial story lines involving Rose's mom and friend Pietro that will reward series readers. VERDICT If Amy Stewart's adventures featuring Miss Kopp married an episode of TV's Murdoch Mysteries, it would become this book's balanced blend of mysticism and mystery.

Lindsey's rollicking sequel to 2018's Murder on Millionaire's Row finds former housemaid Rose Gallagher working with Thomas Wiltshire, her onetime employer, in the secret Pinkerton Detective Agency branch that handles crimes with supernatural aspects. In 1886, 27-year-old Theodore Roosevelt is running for mayor of New York on a platform promising reform of the city's corrupt political machine. When Roosevelt's six most committed supporters die almost simultaneously at the Republican Convention, the coroner blames typhoid, but the bodies show neither disease nor any other obvious cause of death. That the police are ordered not to investigate suggests a high-level cover-up. Could the deaths be the work of a ghostly "shade"? Gallagher and Wiltshire enlist the ingenuity of inventor Nikola Tesla to find out. The stakes rise when someone attempts to kill Roosevelt. Readers will relate to Rose as she struggles to acclimate to her new station in life and manage her attraction to the debonair Wiltshire. Fans of paranormal historicals will be well satisfied.
