"Frank and Sarah Malloy are enjoying married life and looking to make their family official by adopting Catherine, the child Sarah rescued and has been raising as her daughter. The newlyweds soon discover, Parnell Vaughn, an actor and Catherine's legal father, is looking to fatten his pockets by insisting on a financial settlement to relinquish his parental rights. Even though exchanging money for a child is illegal, Frank and Sarah's love for Catherine drives them to take a chance. When Frank returns with the money and finds Vaughn beaten to death, all evidence points to Frank as the culprit. A relatively unsuccessful actor with no money and little promise, Vaughn seems at first to be an unlikely candidate for murder--particularly such a violent crime of passion--but Frank soon uncovers backstage intrigue as dramatic as any that appears on stage. Sarah and Frank must use all of their resources to investigate Vaughn's death as Frank's own life hangs in the balance"--Provided by publisher.

A big thank you to Berkley and NetGalley for a digital ARC of this latest Gaslight Mystery.

I am a big fan of this series and look forward with great anticipation to each new installment. This one is solid as we see character development continuing for the Malloy family as well as Maeve and Gino. I love seeing the elder Mrs. Malloy have more of a voice in this particular mystery as well as the larger roles for Maeve and Gino. I did find the repeated questioning of various theater company members to be a bit repetitive and also when reports were brought back to the group it was a bit difficult to keep track of who had been talking to which witness/suspect. Still, very enjoyable and I look forward to #22!
