In turn-of-the-century New York City, Irish immigrant Molly Murphy is contemplating giving up PI work for something a little less complicated, less exciting. Molly has had quite enough excitement recently, thank you very much. Especially from the handsome but deceptive NYPD captain Daniel Sullivan, whom she'd like to avoid completely. But when Daniel is accused of accepting bribes and lands himself in the Tombs, the notorious city jail, he begs Molly to help prove he was framed, and after everything they've been through, she cannot turn him down.
As she finds herself drawn further and further into the case, she begins to fear that Daniel's trouble is related to one of his investigations - catching the Eastside Ripper, a serial killer who is targeting prostitutes.
Oh Danny Boy marks Edgar Award finalist Rhys Bowen's triumphant fifth installment in the award-winning Molly Murphy mystery series.

Molly Murphy and the cast of characters in her books I have come to love. She keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what next crisis Molly will land in. The Characters are continually deepened and I find most of them quite endearing.
Nicola Barber is excellent with her accents and the emotion she brings to her voices
I enjoyed the mystery and history in this story. While the entire series is early 20th century, I appreciated the small insight into the Irish culture of that same period and reflections of the previous century. The story was good, although there were times I thought is was wordy and lagging and just the opposite at the end...quick ending. I didn't feel all of the threads were tied up, but that could be part of the authors future books.
I have enjoyed all the books Ive listened too. If I didn't enjoy it from the beginning, I returned it and bought another.
Molly is always my favorite in this series.
Yes, and Ive enjoyed them all.
Yes, but unfortunately, I had to put it down occationally.
This series has kept me on the edge of my seat!
Oh Danny Boy by Rhys Bowen keeps you on the edge of your seat and up late. This can't be put down mystery is full of great plot twist and all of the rich, warm characters of the previous Molly Murphy Mysteries. I couldn't wait to see how Molly solved the case, and the villain was certainly not who I expected.
I really enjoyed this mystery! Just wonderful storytelling, keeps you wanting to know what will happen next!
Fun all around!
This book in now way follows the previous book. I have followed Audible's listing of books in this series this in the next book in the series and in know way follows the previous book.
Very disappointing. Someone has dropped the ball in a good series.
