    A daring peak into the life of a young woman living in a large American City in the 1800's. Molly Murphy finds mystery and intrigue her cup of tea.

    Molly Murphy once again dazzles the reader with her wit and charm as she unravels yet another mystery.

    A reviewer

    I love Rhys Bowen's, Molly Murphy series. I always look forward to reading about Molly's adventures in New York during the turn-of-the-century. I enjoy the way that Ms. Bowen incorporates historical characters into her stories. This time Ms. Bowen introduces us to police commissioner, John Partridge and Sabella Goodwin, the first woman to be appointed police detective. Unfortunately, this installment of the Molly Murphy series did not live up to the previous stories. It seemed to drag in places for me and the story did not start interesting me until about 150 pages into the novel. If this had been the first novel in the series I would have stopped reading it, but since I was familiar with many of the characters and liked previous installments I finished the book. Again, this wasn¿t the best novel in the series, but I would still recommend it to fans of Molly Murphy if, for no other reason, than to keep up with the character development.

    GOLLY, MOLLY IS GREAT !!

    Read the Molly Murphy mystery series...it doesn't matter which order you read them in, just read them!! The character is wonderful, the time period is extremely interesting and the supporting cast is terrific. I eagerly await the next book in this series, 'In Dublin's Fair City.'

    Molly's at it again

    With the publication of Oh Danny Boy, I learned about the Molly Murphy Mysteries and read them in order starting with Murphy's Law. Rhys Bowen has created a spunky feminist in turn of the (20th)century New York. Just arrived from Ireland Molly is immediately in the middle of a murder investigation that leads her to her 'career' as a private investigator. Bowen adds a wonderful cast of characters and makes them so realistic that you feel you know them. In her latest addition, Molly's love interest, police Captain Daniel Sullivan, asks her to investigate a case -- his own. He has been wrongfully imprisoned and no one -- not even his court appointed attorney -- is willing to help him. Molly's detective work puts her into contact with Sabella Goodwin, the first woman on the New York City police force. This allows Molly entry where she otherwise would be barred. And between the two of them, they solve the Eastside Ripper murders. After being so immersed in Molly's life for 5 volumes, I'm going to miss her and her friends while awaiting the next volume of Molly's escapades.

    strong historical mystery

    It is the beginning of the twentieth century and Irish immigrant Molly Murphy is one of the first female detectives working in New York City. It has not been easy for Molly to adjust to her new country especially since she discovers her beau NYPD Captain Daniel Sullivan was engaged to blueblood Arabelle Norton at the same time he was seeing her. Daniel is trying to get in touch with Molly by phone and visits to her abode, but she has successfully dodged his efforts. --- She is able to avoid him until a constable literally drags her to see Daniel, who is in the Tombs because he was arrested for accepting a bribe from a mobster in front of the police commissioner amongst others. The envelop he received was supposed to contain a list of underworld figures who want to sponsor an illegal activity, a prize fight, but instead held money. He needs Molly to prove he has been set up probably either to remove him from an investigation he was working on which includes doping a horse or that of the East Side Ripper serial killer. Molly knows the danger, but for personal reasons must help OH DANNY BOY. --- Rhys Bowen has created one of the most ferociously spunky heroines to grace the pages of a historical mystery series. Molly feels strongly that women can do anything men can do, sometimes better and demands equal rights and liberties at a time when females cannot vote. Although she is deeply hurt by Daniel¿s betrayal, she still cares for the ¿rat¿ and willingly risks her life in some dangerous neighborhoods to prove he is innocent. The clues to the police cases and Daniel¿s frame is laid out cleverly so that the audience can piece it together, but is not obvious and that makes for a pleasing puzzler inside a look back to a major immigration wave era. --- Harriet Klausner
