OrangeReviewStar"Bloodbound" fantasy series author Lindsey's first mystery weaves a tale rich with history and supernatural elements. Rose Gallagher works as a housemaid on "Millionaires' Row," where the glitz and glamour of high society New York is in vivid contrast to her upbringing in the gritty Five Points neighborhood. When her handsome employer Thomas Wiltshire disappears, Rose is determined to locate him, since the police are convinced he's just a rich dandy off on a bender. Using her wits and intuition, Rose finds Thomas, who has been held captive by a gang of roughs. But just when she thinks the adventure is over, the appearance of a ghostly figure opens Rose's eyes to a world she never knew existed, changing her life forever.
VERDICT With a strong, likable heroine and a well-drawn cast of characters, this highly recommended romp through late 19th-century New York will have readers clamoring for the next installment.
