BROOKLYN ON FIRE By Lawrence H. Levy

Brooklyn on Fire by Lawrence H. Levy

A historical mystery featuring Mary Handly as the protagonist. Mary is a trying to become a detective in Brooklyn in the 1800s. Emily Worsham asked her to investigate the death of her Uncle John Worsham as Emily feels it was murder. As Mary begins her case Emily is found murdered. There are two more murders, one of Mary’s brother was arrested as the killer. In each, case a fire is set to burn the victim. John’s background has ties to prominent Brooklyn politicians. Mary becomes romantically involved with a member of the elite. The plot is interesting and well written; however it did not flow together. The plot jump to each part often leaving the reader confused.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Crown Publishing through Netgalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions are my own.
