Full of rich historic detail and enchanting turn-of-the-century personalities, Molly's return home, In Dublin's Fair City, is the sixth thrilling installment in Rhys Bowen's award-winning Molly Murphy series.
Molly Murphy, a plucky P.I. in 1903 New York, sails back to her native Ireland on a case searching for the sister of an Irish American impresario. The woman was too sick to travel and was left behind when the family took a famine ship to New York fifty years ago, and now the man wants to settle his fortune on her.
But before Molly's ship reaches Ireland, her maid is found murdered and a famous Irish actress goes missing. Molly is shocked to discover a cache of rifles in the actress's luggage, and even more shocked to come upon her own brother trying to collect the bags in Dublin. She discovers he's now mixed up in the freedom movement, in which Molly herself becomes unwillingly embroiled in. And someone else seems to be on the trail of the missing woman, too - someone who wants to make sure Molly never finds her....

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This one puzzle was distracting but not detracting - a well paced story which kept me glued to the pages until the end.
Another big problem is that there is a big lead up to the final scene but then it ends abruptly and Molly narrates two paragraphs about the aftermath of everything that was going on. It's just a complete let down and frankly, kind of a cop out.
Unfortunately, I did not like this one. Here's hoping that the next on is better.
There is only one negative about the entire Molly Murphy series for which Rhys Bowen cannot seem to manage a solution - the book is over far too quickly!! The reader wants to "play with Molly" just a little longer, because being in her presence, the reader shares the fun and quirkiness of Molly's life. Anyone who follows the series is not too sure of a long-term future Molly might have with Daniel Sullivan, the love interest we've embraced through six books, Murphy's Law, Death of Riley, For the Love of Mike, In like Flynn, Oh Danny Boy and now the delightful, In Dublin's Fair City. But most assuredly, the intrigue Bowen creates will cause you to champion her next book, whenever it arrives.
If you want a little fun diversion in your reading, something joyful and fascinating, start with the first book and take the carnival ride through the entire series. You will not regret it - in fact, you will love the experience like a fond memory of that wonderful "day at the beach".
I like this series a lot, and this is one of the best yet. It can be read on its own, but I think it's better as part of the series, so if you can, begin with "Murphy's Law."

Autorin hier allerdings gedacht hat, bleibt mir ein Rätsel. Die tollsten Unwahrscheinlichkeiten und glücklichen Zufälle reihen sich da munter
aneinander, und die recht gut startende Handlung wird immer komplizierter und verworrener, da einfach viel zu viel hineingepackt wird.
Und Molly als Handlangerin einer halb-terroristischen irischen Freiheitskampagne? Ein absolutes No-Go! Zum Schluss ufert die Story
dermaßen aus, dass sich Mrs Bowen wohl selbst nicht mehr auskennt und das Ganze viel zu rasch und unlogisch zum Abschluss
bringt. Da hilft auch ein "splendid Job of capturing the flavour of early twentieth-century New York" nicht viel (Werbespruch auf der
Buchrückseite), zumal die Geschichte ja hauptsächlich in Irland bzw. Dublin spielt.
