Edgar nominated mystery author Victoria Thompson has written twenty (!) books in her Gaslight Mystery series set at the end of the 19th century in New York City.
This is an author who knows her history! I was slightly intimidated to talk to Vicky, because I’m very new to the historical mystery genre. But she was a joy to chat with. You’ll hear us discuss, among other thing, the parallels between the historical period we both write in and the present era we’re all living in and experiencing today.
If you’re wanting to sink your teeth into a series that will provide you weeks of reading pleasure, you’ve come to the right podcast today. 😉 And even better news, Vicky has a new mystery series that recently launched with City of Lies.
