Publisher Description

A delightful short story from Rhys Bowen featuring turn-of-the-century private investigator Molly Murphy

Before Molly Murphy crossed the Atlantic or even had an inkling that she might someday become a much sought after private investigator in New York City, young Molly lived in Ireland in a small cottage with her father, brothers and little else.

While keeping herself and her home together, Molly receives a request from Lady Hartley—the lady of the country estate where Molly lives, and the family that employs Molly's father and brothers. The Hartleys are hosting a ball at their manor house, and there will be so many fine gentlemen and ladies in attendance that Lady Hartley needs Molly to help some of her guests prepare for the ball.

Beautiful debutantes, dresses of the finest fabrics, and sparkling chandeliers are all on display, as are heirloom jewels like the Amersham rubies—a stunning and priceless ruby necklace that has been in the Amersham family for generations. When the rubies go inexplicably missing from Lady Amersham's neck in the middle of the party, the high-spirited Molly must rely on her wits to solve her first case in Rhys Bowen's The Amersham Rubies, the charming prequel to her beloved Anthony and Agatha Award–winning historical mystery series.

The AMERSHAM Rubies.

The book was fine but it just ended right in the middle of the story. It should have said Book One. Plus even if I was going to read the next book it doesn't tell you which one is the continued story.

I loved how she captured me from the start. I couldn’t put it down.
