A Molly Murphy MysteryLarge Print - 2003
With the sweeping skyline of ninteenth century New York and the gritty, pulsating underworld of recently arrived immigrants forming a vivid backdrop, Rhys Bowen transports readers back in time to America's not-so-distant past. The fiery redhead Molly Murphy escapes from her Irish village after inadvertently causing the death of the young laird. She finds herself in possession of a steerage ticket to New York with a false identity and believes her whole life is ahead of her full of promise. But there is one hurdle to cross--Ellis Island--where another murder takes place, and she is the prime suspect. She has run-ins with the police and Tammany Hall, becomes close to the handsome police captain, and must clear her own name. Alone in a new country with no one to lean on, Molly hits the vibrant streets of New York intent on finding out what really happened.
