    This is the third book of the Gilded Age Mysteries. I have not read the first two, but it did not take away from enjoying this installment! The story pulled me in right from the beginning. 1889, New York, murder and mystery. A great combination for any story! I love how the leading investigator is Prudence, who is a "I won't take no for an answer" kind of woman. I now need to go back and read the other two novels!Thank you NetGalley for the chanc...

    Always happy to discover an author who’s new to me! I enjoyed this one! Unfortunately I didn’t realize going in that this was the third book in the series (I always hate not starting at the beginning!), but I’m looking forward to going back to read the first two ASAP. Our sleuths are an orphaned young woman whose father was a judge (she wants to be a lawyer) and an ex-Pinkerton detective from North Carolina now making NY his home. Diabolica...

    I have enjoyed this exciting, evocative series and am very much looking forward to future installments. The characters are all interesting and well drawn, the historical elements are usually correct, and romance is never allowed to overwhelm the action.Thanks to NetGalley for providing an ARC ebook for my review.
  • Peggy Jaeger
    While I'm sure this book will do well with historical readers, it just wasn't my cup of tea. Having said that, the story was sound, the characters well drawn out and complete and the ending well constructed. Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington or an arc for an honest opinion

    I love this genre of books. I was sucked in by page 10! I look forward to reading the rest of it! I like the authors writing style. This is going to be one of those books I can't put down!

    Let the Dead Keep Their Secrets by Rosemary Simpson is a Historical Mystery to savor. I loved all the historical details of the culture, clothing, technology and surroundings. Close your eyes and you may glimpse the 19th century for a moment. Feel the emotions and know the thoughts of the all the characters. The criminals plot their evil deeds but are they mad or evil or both? How far will the investigators go to solve the murders? Who will find ...

    Let the Dead Keep Their Secrets is the third in this series and it did not disappoint. This is a great historical mystery series, that has wonderful interesting characters and wonderful plots. Rosemary Simpson is a great author and everyone should read her books
  • Leyla Johnson
    A historical book of murder and mystery. This book is extremely well written, a little different in the fact that it does get into some of the minds of the times (and I won't enlarge as it would spoil the read) and the period of the book is well set - one can almost feel it around. I did enjoy the book, thought provoking and a little dark but a very good read. character where good and the thriller element on there.
  • Kendra
    A thriller with rather cardboard characters and a not-terribly-thrilling plot. Set in New York, the plot involves a man killing his wives for their fortunes, a post-mortem photographer and his sister trying to capture an image of a soul leaving a body, an ex-Pinkerton detective, a woman investigator, and a cast of other flat and boring characters including Jacob Riis, who is included because apparently you have to have a real-life figure in a boo...
