Publisher's Summary

Molly Murphy's beau Captain Daniel Sullivan may be out of jail on bail, but he's still a ways from clearing his name, and his foul mood has Molly in search of a little breathing room when providence steps in in the form of a proposition from New York City's renowned theatrical impresario Tommy Burke.

America has been very good to Tommy, and now that he's getting on in years, he'd like to pass some of that good fortune on to his family back in Ireland. That's, of course, if Molly can find the long-lost baby sister his family left in the care of a parish priest when they fled the famine and avoid the warrant out for her arrest that forced Molly to flee herself. Tempted by the prospect of going home for the first time in years and putting her fledging detective agency on firm financial ground, Molly throws caution to the wind and climbs aboard the White Start Liner Majestic with hopes of sneaking on and off the isle without raising a peep.

But even before Molly lands on the other side of the Atlantic, Broadway's leading actress, Oona Sheehan, has gone missing from the ship, and her maid is found dead in her cabin.

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.

    "Such a Fun Series!"

    I love this series! The more episodes I read, the more I want to read; I am glad there are many more instalments ahead.

    This one had me rolling my eyes on multiple occasions because it was a little heavy on the lucky coincidences, but so what – I still enjoyed it.

    On to book 7!

    "Narrator is getting better"

    At first Nicole Barber was too breathy for me as Molly but her narration is so much better and the books are really quite good.

    "Dublin is dreary"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The 6th installment in the Molly Murphy Mysteries floundered. There was almost too much going on in the plot: Oona Sheehan's mysterious disappearance, the murder of Oona's young maid, finding Tommy Burke's lost sister, anarchists, and the random popping up James Joyce (yes, the writer). Joyce didn't add anything to the story line. What bothered me more, was Molly's serendipitous meeting with her younger brothers who just happened to be in Dublin. It fell into place all too nicely. I sorely missed Gus and Sid's presence. The ending however, helped bumped it from a one star to a two star rating. I wish the entire novel, had run like that

    "love the series"

    I just love the cleanness of the series, no bad language, no explicit sex, etc. The narrator puts enough excitement to keep it interesting.

    "I Surrender!!! Best yet."
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Got choked up near the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Okay, I'm not a fan of so-called "cozy" mysteries. My tastes run to darker writers in the Celtic Noir vein: Stuart MacBride, Adrian McKinty, Stuart Neville, Tana French, etc. I gifted my sister a McKinty novel, she gifted me the first Molly novel. I thought I wouldn't like it, and the reading of male voices annoyed the heck outta me so I kept thinking I'd read one and say thanks and stop. or two and stop. Or maybe three or four. But the central character is so bleeping engaging (and well read) I'd even say inspiring that I can't stop reading these. And now that she's gotten into the Irish fight for self-rule . . . This is her best yet. Sooooo hooked, despite the "light reading-ness" of the books, I do find something more substantial lurking in the writing, in the main character's bravery, her choice of friends, her open mind . . . A lot to admire and aspire to!!! So I surrender. I'm officially a Molly Murphy fan.

    Rhys Bowen is an accomplished writer. I've listened to most of Molly Murphy's adventures/experiences and will be looking for more books by Ms Bowen!

    "good historical fiction plus NancyDrewForGrownUps"

    I enjoy this entire series. The narrator is great---knew her voice from Kearsley's Rose Garden and immediately bought the first book when I recognized her voice on the sample. This one takes a particularly interesting turn, keeping our character from being just a NancyDrew/MissMarpleTheYounger/CaseOfTheWeek type of story. This one really broadens the scope of the story. Listen to them in order. After this one I knew I'd continue to listen and enjoy.
