In the aftermath of the disastrous opening act, Bess, Houdini's wife, and Molly strike up a conversation. Discovering that Molly is a private detective, Beth hires her to look out for Houdini, as she suspects someone means him harm. So, despite Daniel's admonishments about giving up her chosen career now that they are getting married, Molly goes all out to discover just what exactly is going on.
As always, the author skillfully captures the feel of a bygone era, and the story is rife with period detail and highly atmospheric. This is a well-written book with an intriguing plot and characters that will fully engage the reader. 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. Those who like the historical cozy mystery genre will definitely enjoy this entertaining series.
I would recommend reading these novels in order to get a smooth understanding and background of what happened previously to the main character.
"Murphy's Law" is the first novel in this suspenseful series! ENJOY!
What happens next will keep you spellbound. Excellent read.
Molly is maturing as a character, both personally and professionally. One of the strengths of Rhys' writing is the the depth of her characters. Mixed with an active plot and interesting history, this is a great read.
It was quite fascinating to see Bowen take a delightful fictional character in Molly Murphy and synergize her with an actual historical figure, Harry Houdini. The writing was clever, informative and of the highest caliber.
A long time Rhys Bowen fan, I still recommend for first time readers that you start at the beginning and watch Molly grow and season throughout the entire series of nine books. You will not be disappointed but instead, enlightened and entertained.
