Set in 1903, Bowen's sixth brisk Molly Murphy historical (after 2006's Oh Danny Boy) takes the Irish immigrant to New York City back to the Emerald Isle for an assignment to find a theater impresario's long-lost sister, left behind when his family fled the potato famine 50 years earlier. Even though Molly had left Ireland under a cloud of suspicion herself, she bids a temporary farewell to her beau, New York police captain Daniel Sullivan. The voyage begins auspiciously when a famous actress offers Molly her first class stateroom, but Molly's discovery of a corpse in her sumptuous bed is only the beginning of a complicated, dangerous journey. In Dublin, she becomes embroiled in the Irish struggle for freedom and finds herself a target for murder. With a riveting plot capped off by a dramatic conclusion, Bowen captures the passion and struggles of the Irish people at the turn of the 20th century.

Another nice addition to the Molly Murphy mysteries. The nice part of this book it takes her out of New York City into Ireland. You get more background on her family. Very little on Daniel in this book but that plot line is slow moving anyways. Good addition to the series.

Bowen's Molly Murphy series just keeps getting better with each book. This is the best so far. The story line was an interesting one, and the two different parts of Molly's adventure kept me reading long after bed time! If you are a Molly Murphy fan, you don't want to miss this one!

Not as strong as other Molly Murphy stories. Still fun, just reads as if she needed to get a book done this quarter.

When New York theatre impresario Tommy Burke asks Molly Murphy to help him take care of some family business back in Ireland, Molly is happy to oblige. Tempted by the prospect of going home for the first time in years (and putting her fledglin detective agency on firm financial ground), Molly throws caution to the wind and climbs aboard the White Star Liner Majestic with hopes of sneaking on and off the isle without raising a peep. Until one passenger, who happens to be a famous Broadway actress, goes missing aand another turns up dead, in Molly's bed. Our early-twentieth century private investigator is back in the sixth thrilling installment in an award winning series.
