In the latest in Rhys Bowen's award-winning historical series, Molly Murphy is supposed to give up sleuthing now that she’s married, but the murder of an alderman puts her on the trail of a killer.
Molly Murphy, now Molly Sullivan, and her husband Daniel, a captain in the New York Police department, have been invited to spend their honeymoon on the Newport, RI, estate of Alderman Brian Hannan in the spring of 1904. Molly doesn’t entirely trust the offer. Hannan - an ambitious man - has his eye on a senate seat and intentions of taking Tammany Hall to get it.
When Hannan is found dead at the base of the cliffs that overlook the Atlantic, Molly’s suspicions are quickly justified, and as much as she wants to keep her promise to Daniel that she won’t do any more sleuthing now, there isn’t much she can do once the chase is on. Rhys Bowen’s brilliant wit and charm are on full display in Hush Now, Don’t You Cry, another outstanding addition to her Agatha and Anthony award-winning historical series.

The boyfriend now husband Daniel is so consistently overbearing that it detracts from this series. It would be so much better without his overbearing comments.
These books are a good series but the love interest detracts from the series.
Not usually looking out for historical fiction relating to New York, but Irish immigration interests me a lot, especially because it came at different times creating a strata in NYC of old and new, powerful and disadvantaged. But they were all spirited and passionatly political. Enter Molly Murphy and my favorite historical subject, women challenging the status quo and I'm in for the duration- consuming every book- and always left wanting more. Rhys Bowen had done it again...
