Death at Tammany Hall
Gilded Age Mystery Series, Book 3
New York City, 1894. The Democratic Party headquarters at Tammany Hall is a hotbed of cronyism, corruption, and intimidation. Private investigator Pamela Thompson's close colleague at Jeremiah Prescott's law firm, former NYPD detective Harry Miller, has had his own career tainted by scandal. Seven years ago, while investigating a case connected to Tammany Hall, he was falsely accused and wrongfully convicted of extortion.

Miller's conviction continues to cast its long shadow into his current life, so he seeks Pamela's help in exonerating him. The key to uncovering the truth lies with the murder of a cabdriver and a missing portfolio with the potential to incriminate certain city aldermen of taking backroom bribes. But as Pamela and Miller follow the money trail to expose the conspiracy, they find their own lives in jeopardy...

About the Author-
  • Charles O'Brien decided to try his hand at writing historical mysteries due to a lifelong love of delving into the past. James Joyce's Dubliners and Willa Cather's Death Comes for the Archbishop have both influenced his writing style. He lives with his wife, Elvy, an art historian, in Williamstown, a small college town in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    May 11, 2015
    O’Brien’s uneven third Gilded Age mystery (after 2014’s Death in Sarasota Springs) pits attorney Jeremiah Prescott and investigator Pamela Thompson against Tammany Hall, the political machine that once dominated Manhattan. In 1887, Tammany operatives assassinate a cab driver who finds evidence of their corruption. When police detective Harry Miller realizes that the killer has gone free, he winds up going to prison on false charges. Seven years later, Harry is working for Prescott’s firm when the family of the woman he loves forbids their relationship due to his checkered past. To save his romance and expunge his wrongful conviction, Pamela’s team probes the family’s sinister connections to the judge who sentenced Harry and the real story behind the cabbie’s murder, thus risking Tammany’s reprisals. The deftly chosen period details and gentle romance between Prescott and Pamela shine. But the myriad minor characters, convoluted subplots, and secondhand accounts don’t do full justice to O’Brien’s gifts or Tammany’s dark vigor. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency.

  • Publishers Weekly "O'Brien captures the colorful details and varied characters of an opulent era deftly."
  • Kirkus Reviews "A pleasingly detailed look at the age of the robber barons along with enough strongly characterized suspects to keep readers guessing."
  • Library Journal "The author skillfully weaves in fascinating details about American social history. Pair with Stefanie Pintoff, and also recommend for fans of Rhys Bowen's 'Molly Malone' series."
