Nce call to the Upper West Side where Charles Fairfax the son of family friends has died unexpectedly after suffering from a mysterious disease It is a tragic and all too common story or so it seems Charles’s father asks to speak with Sarah privately He believes his son was poisoned and would like Sarah and Frank to look into the mat. Reread May 2019 I listened to the audiobook for this reread and I didn't care for the narrator at all I pretty much hated all the voices she used for the various characters particularly Frank's Otherwise my original impressions of the book still standThe Gaslight Mystery series has become one of my comfort reads You know those books you can go to where you can just sit back relax prop your feet up on the table and feel at home This wasn't the best book in the series what with Sarah feeling somewhat sidelined in the first third of the book and there being precious little alone time between Sarah and Frank but even so it was an enjoyable way to spend an evening
