Publisher Description

'Delightful... as ever, Bowen does a splendid job of capturing the flavour of early twentieth-century New York and bringing to life its warm and human inhabitants.' Publishers Weekly

Out of the frying pan and into the fire!

Molly Murphy can't seem to fit in anywhere. Not with the new immigrants pouring in from the Old World and certainly not with the society folk she envies from afar. After bungling a job as a lady's companion, Molly decides to become an assistant to the notorious private investigator, Paddy Riley. Unfortunately, Paddy's underworld dealings leave him deader than a doornail and Molly in possession of his detective agency.

Before long, Molly has set off on a journey that will take her through the back alleys of Manhattan and into the bars and lounges of the literary scene, where she spends time with writers, actors, poets, and musicians. It's quite an eye-opening turn for innocent young Molly, but she's resolute in her decision to find out exactly what happened that day in the office of Paddy Riley.

Armed with nothing more than her fiery will and matching wild red hair, Molly has no idea of the danger her pursuit may bring in this fascinating, well-researched, and suspenseful second novel in Rhys Bowen's Agatha-award winning series.

'An evocative trip through Old New York... in the company of Irish immigrant Molly Murphy, a spirited and appealing guide.' SJ Rozan, author of Winter and Night

'Irish humour and gritty determination... with charm and optimism.' Anne Perry

'Molly grows ever more engaging against a vibrant background of New York's dark side at the turn of the century.' Kirkus Reviews
