Brooklyn's most witty and daring detective risks everything to solve a dangerous triple-murder case.
After closing a case with the Brooklyn Police Department, Mary Handley is determined to become an official detective in her own right. And when Emily Worsham shows up at her new office - convinced her uncle, John Worsham, was murdered and desperate for answers - Mary's second assignment begins.
As she investigates the curious circumstances surrounding John's death, Mary soon finds herself entangled in a high-stakes family scandal, a series of interconnected murders, political corruption, untrustworthy sources, and an unexpected romance with a central member of New York's elite.
Featuring historic figures like Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and the Vanderbilt family, Brooklyn on Fire takes Mary on a wild journey from New York City to North Carolina to uncover not only the truth of one man's death but to unravel the mystery in three murders - with links tied perilously close to her own personal world.
