In Like Flynn includes a lot of historical detail and it would almost be worth reading it just for that. However there is also a good story and a lot of activity to enjoy. Molly has settled down a bit since the first books and her sleuthing is less obvious and more circumspect. More rational if truth be told. She still comes close to death three times but then this is Molly Murphy we are talking about.
All in all a light, entertaining murder mystery with the promise of more to come.
When he offers Molly an opportunity to for an undercover assignment in the Hudson River home of Barney Flynn, a local politician, Molly jumps at the opportunity. Not only does it get her out of the teeming streets of typhoid ridden New York City, it gets her an opportunity to hone her skills at detection.
Masquerading as Flynn's cousin, Molly is drawn into the Flynn household, where Flynn's invalid wife is trying to contact her dead son through the supposed psychic abilities of the Sorensen sisters, who are also houseguest of the Flynn's. Their son apparently had been kidnapped years before but never found, as the purported kidnapper had died at the hands of the police before the child's whereabouts could be ascertained.
As Molly gains insight into the Flynn household, Molly begins to question not only the psychic abilities of the Sorenson sisters, who are the focus of her assignment, but she also begins to question the handling of the kidnapping case by the police. As Molly's investigation begins to take her in another direction, danger looms near, and death seems to be just around the corner.
This is a well-written book with an intriguing plot and characters that will fully engage the reader. The book is also replete with historical detail that is evocative of a bygone era. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mystery is intriguing, it is the framework around which the characters evolve. In the character of Molly Murphy, the author has created a sure fire winner.
This time, Molly goes undercover on behalf of the New York Police Department to expose two spiritualists as phonies. She has to pretend to be a long lost cousin of a New York Senator and live on the Senator's estate. While on the estate, she stumbles upon clues about an old kidnapping and a new murder. In typical Molly Murphy style, she gets herself involved in every aspect of all the various mysteries and sets about solving them.
A quick and very enjoyable read. I definitely recommend this book. On to the next one.
