    One thought on “Island Of Tears”

    1. ISLAND OF TEARS, Troy Soos, 2001, 1 Marshall Webb, reporter, Rebecca Davies, social worker, NYC 1892 At the Opening Day ceremonies at Ellis Island, a reporter makes the acquaintance of a nice young immigrant girl and decides to follow her story as she adapts to life in America When a few days later he finds she s gone missing, he tries to track her down I very much enjoyed this author s earlier, baseball centric historical mystery series smoothly written, funny, AND baseball Plots were good too [...]

    2. I read Streets of Fire first abnd enjoyed Troy Soos s characterization of 1890 s New York It intrigued me to read the first of the series I m glad I did I am disappointed that a new Mickey Rawlings mystery hasn t appeared, however I really like Marshall Webb The story line about immigrants touched me I hope next year to read a passage about the opening of Ellis Island to my U.S History classes.

    3. This an interesting concept for a mystery set in the late 19th century New York City instead of a police detective, two private citizens defy a corrupt police department to try to solve the murder of an immigrant girl The author certainly knows his milieu, and his attention to detail is half the fun of this book.

    4. Any mourning over the apparent ending of the Mickey Rawlings series has pretty much been laid to rest at having finally run across this terrific period follower Rampant corruption, immigrant slavery and, hey, bonus points for even working in a little TAEdison douchebaggery.

    5. I liked the historical detail of what New York was like circa 1892 At the same time, it was very sad how immigrants were treated, especially females Another embarrassment in American history that most of us don t want to think about or admit.

    6. A lot like Victoria Thompsons work Same period in New York City Well born matron makes good by helping the less fortunate Way too it than that I liked the protagonist, a writer for Harpers KB

    7. Very good novel with an interesting story It s not one of those books where you can guess what happens next It had a good plot with an interesting twist.

    8. I really liked the description of New York City in the 1800 s both the physical and the socio political economic Depressing but eye opening An easy read.

    9. Hmmm This was hard to rate Loved the historical setting and the plot but felt it was lacking Also felt the ending was rather anti climatic.
