Murdoch Mysteries A NIGHT'S CHILD. Verified purchase: Yes Condition: Pre-owned. by drk267909 Jan, 2013. Excellent book, a good read. I found the first few chapters a bit hard to get into but after that I found it hard to put down, it's well written with a few twists along the way just as you would expect from Murdoch Mysteries. by ronnie-ted07 Jun, 2016.

After thirteen-year-old Agnes Fisher faints at school, her teacher is shocked to discover salacious photographs of the girl in her desk. When Agnes doesn't show up at school the next day, her teacher takes the photographs to the police. Murdoch, furious at the sexual exploitation of such a young girl, resolves to find the photographer - and to put him behind bars.

I have been watching the Murdoch Mysteries on Netflix and have really enjoyed them so I decided to read one of the books that series is based on.

There are some differences, of course, but it was still an enjoyable read. What I like is that these stories set in Victorian times parallel things that are happening today. Showing that the more things change - the more they stay the same.

There were a couple of mysteries going on in this book and finding out how Murdoch solves both of them is fun. It seemed like this wasn't a very long book - but it is actually 312 pages. It just went seemed to go by faster than that.

It seems to me that the portrayal of that time period is pretty accurate. The book was well written and kept my interest.

Those that have only watched the series - be aware that Murdoch is quite a bit less straight laced in the books than he is in the series.

I found this to be a rougher story than some of Maureen Jenning's other books, but it was certainly worth reading. I had only heard of this writer a few years ago and now I want to read all her books, especially the ones involving the Murdoch Mysteries. I would recommend this to anyone ho likes a good read and is not upset by a plot that involves solving a mystery around a missing, and sexually exploited, 12-13 year-old girl. More intense than some of her other books, this one brings in a female character that Murdoch gradually becomes interested in as they work to solve the mystery of the missing child (she is the teacher of the girl). Once i started reading it, I couldn't stop.

As a huge fan of the "Murdoch Mysteries" television show, I decided to buy some of the novels as my first Kindle books to read on vacation. As expected, the story was well-written, the plot well-crafted and believable, the dialog crisp and natural and the suspense held to the very last page with a plot twist at the very end that was at once surprising but eminently believable and satisfying. My only disappointment is that Detective Murdoch and Inspector Brackenreid are somewhat less appealing characters than those in the tv series. Even so, Murdoch's dialog is very much in character with that of his tv counterpart. Anyone who is a fan of the show or who likes historical murder mysteries, especially ones set in Canada or in the Victorian era would probably like this novel. It has not been made into an episode during the first 7 seasons of the tv show nor does it include any leading edge techniques for crime detection that are an important plot element for the tv series. The Victorian era was a harsh one for the poor and vulnerable and anyone who does not like to read about that probably won't want to read this book. This book and the television series each stand alone and neither will diminish the appeal of the other. I will read the other book I purchased and wait impatiently for Season 8 to appear on AcornTV. I only wish the episodes were broadcast in the U.S. at the same time as in Canada. The author has created an entertaining series and hopefully has many years of storytelling for this cast of characters.

So far, this book and story was the best of the Murdoch series to me. The characters were very well developed and involved in fascinating relational encounters. The setting of the story was intriguing and informative. I have come to appreciate the primal instincts that are presented in Jennings writing of this era. Great story, also. It keeps you guessing.

We truly enjoy the writings of Maureen Jennings. Her stories are convoluted. They have so many stories inside of stories. They hold your interest throughout. We also enjoy The Artful Detective on Ovation TV.

not as good as I had hoped

This William Murdoch is very different from the Canadian TV series, but is still intriguing to follow as he probes Victorian society's underbelly for both victim and culprit of grisly murders. The historical detail is amazingly rich, as is the mix of immigrants, cultures, and mores which populate late-19th century Toronto.
I have become obsessed with Detective Murdoch. I started watching the show on Ovation and it has blossomed from there. This book was very good. The plot was believable and moved at a good pace. I read it in only a few days. I recommend it if you like detective stories.
