Publisher's Summary

Molly and Daniel Sullivan are settling happily into the new routines of parenthood, but their domestic bliss is shattered the night a gang retaliates against Daniel for making a big arrest. Daniel wants his family safely out of New York City as soon as possible. In shock and grieving, but knowing she needs to protect their infant son, Liam, Molly agrees to take him on the long journey to Paris to stay with her friends Sid and Gus, who are studying art in the City of Light.

But upon arriving in Paris, nothing goes as planned. Sid and Gus seem to have vanished into thin air, and Molly's search to figure out what happened to them will lead her through all levels of Parisian society, from extravagant salons to the dingy cafés where starving artists linger over coffee and loud philosophical debates. And when in the course of her search she stumbles across a dead body, Molly, on her own in a foreign country, starts to wonder if she and Liam might be in even more danger in Paris than they had been at home.

As Impressionism gives way to Fauvism and Cubism, and the Dreyfus affair rocks France, Molly races through Paris to outsmart a killer in City of Darkness and Light, Rhys Bowen's most spectacular Molly Murphy novel yet.

What the Critics Say

"Nicola Barber's clear, light voice and facility with accents, especially Irish and French, are well displayed in this latest chapter in the Molly Murphy mysteries, set in the early 1900s." (AudioFile)

    "great story and great narrator--the saga continues"

    The saga continues successfully. I was afraid that the story would get dull once certain domestic milestones were reached but this one was going strong!! Loved it. Made me decide that I want to go back an listen to the whole series again.

    Story
    "Not the Molly I know"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The narrator is very poor. Very girlish and fake Irish accident. She does not sound like the feisty character she is in the books. Also to be honest too much crying and screaming and worrying about the child to be interesting. This will probably be the last of this series I will read. It was much better when she wasn't married.


    What didn’t you like about Nicola Barber’s performance?

    Very girlish. All the women sounded like they were 12 years old. No one sounded confident or like an adult. Bad accents


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope. There are other books in the series that would make much better movies than this one.
