Last Stop in Brooklyn Review


 About the Book

It's the summer of 1894, and an infidelity case has brought PI Mary Handley to a far corner of Brooklyn: Coney Island. In the midst of her investigation, Mary is contacted by a convicted man's brother to reopen a murder case. A prostitute was killed by a Jack the Ripper copycat years ago in her New York hotel room, but her true killer was never found. Once again it's up to Mary to make right the city's wrongs.
New York City's untouchable head of detectives, Thomas Byrnes, swears he put the right man behond bars, but as Mary digs deeper, she finds corruption at the heart of New York's justice system, involving not only the police, but the most powerful of stock titans. Disturbing evidence of other murders begins to surface, each one mimicking Jack the Ripper's style, each one covered up by Thomas Byrnes.
As Mary pieces together the extent of the damage, she crosses paths with Harper Lloyd, an investigative reporter. Their relationship grows into a partnership, and perhaps more, and together they must catch a killer who's still out there, and reverse the ruthless workings of New York's elite. It'll be Mary's most dangerous, most personal case yet. (Goodreads)

 *Note: There is a lot of cussing and a couple of more gruesome scenes in this story.

My Thoughts

Well I will be honest in saying this was not my favorite book. It moves super slow and I couldn't get into the mystery or the characters. I liked the setting and there was slight excitement but I just didn't love it. I thought some of the phrases and wording was modern and it didn't seem like it was in a different time period much of the time. I am sorry to say I don't recommend this book. I do love the cover though!
Two Stars.
