Publisher Description

In Chinatown to deliver a baby, Sarah Brandt meets a group of women she might otherwise never have come across: Irish girls who, after alighting on Ellis Island alone, have married Chinese men in the same predicament. But with bigotry in New York from every side, their mixed-race children are often treated badly, by the Irish, the Chinese—even the police.
 
When the new mother’s half-Chinese, half-Irish, 15-year-old niece goes missing, Sarah knows that alerting the constables would prove futile. So she turns to Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy—and together they begin the search themselves. And after they find her, dead in an alley, Sarah and Malloy have ample suspects—from both sides of Canal Street.

Chinatown

Interesting look at Chinatown in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. I learned a lot about this group of people. Because the Chinese government did not allow any women to leave the country, the Chinese men in the United States had to marry Irish immigrants. The men were mostly very successful and fairly wealthy. The girls were sometimes happy to have a wealthy husband but sometimes not. This is the basic story here. Father wants very young daughter to marry very old, wealthy Irishman. An interesting, informative look at Chinatown and of course Sarah and Malloy continue their forbidden attraction while Malloy continues to investigate Tom’s 4 year old murder. I enjoyed this Gaslight series book. Educational and fun read.
