“Murphy’s Law” — A Treat For Summer!

Are you looking for something worthwhile to read this summer?

I have the perfect book just for you. 

“Murphy’s Law” is the first in a series of 17 mystery novels written by Rhys Bowen, the author of the Anthony Award- and Agatha Award-winning Molly Murphy Mysteries.

We meet Molly Murphy, a no-nonsense, feisty, redhead Irishwoman from Ballykillin, County Mayo. Today, Ballykillin is spelled Ballykilleen. She leaves Ireland in a rush (The circumstances I won’t tell you; it will take away the fun.) and finds herself sailing across the Atlantic for the safety shore of America, where she settles in early 20th century New York. 

When a man, a fellow passenger on the Majestic, is found murdered, Molly finds herself a prime suspect since she was seen arguing with him.

If she can’t clear her name, she is bound to be deported back to Ireland. 

Using her charm, wit, and Celtic sixth sense, she sets out to find the killer on her own.  Molly undertakes a desperate mission to clear her name before her deadly past comes back to haunt her new future in the New World.

Now, I’m on my 7th Molly Murphy mystery book.  Molly Murphy, the amateur sleuth, has kept me company during the lockdown in these past three months, and I’m looking forward to more of her adventures in the next nine installments!
