Molly Murphy Sullivan's husband, Daniel, a captain in the New York City police force, is stumped. He's chasing a murderer whose victims have nothing in common - nothing except for the taunting notes that are delivered to Daniel after each murder. And when Daniel receives a note immediately after Molly and her young son, Liam, are in a terrible train crash, Daniel and Molly both begin to fear that maybe Molly herself was the target. Molly's detective instincts are humming, but finding the time to dig deeper into this case is a challenge. She's healing from injuries sustained in the crash and is sidetracked by her friends Sid and Gus' most recent hobby: dream analysis. And when Molly herself starts suffering from strange dreams, she wonders if they just might hold the key to solving Daniel's murder case.
Rhys Bowen's characteristic blend of atmospheric turn-of-the-century history, clever plotting, and sparkling characters will delight readers in The Edge of Dreams, the latest in her best-selling Molly Murphy series.

I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
I enjoy this series but wish the narrator did a better job with the male voices. They all sound like they have a lisp! This story is about a serial killer; Molly gets involved with husband Daniels' case after nearly being killed herself in an accident. Its a pretty good plot and evolves with a few twists. I do find it amusing that Molly is always able to find things the police don't; its odd that the cops are that inept. Still the character of Molly and her various friends do make for an enjoyable story. The series was better before she was married although Daniel was a bit better this time in that he let her help with the case. I hope that trend continues because its very tiresome when he complains about it so much. He is kind of an overbearing bore!
Not much of a reader but love to listen
I could not stop listening to this book and finished it in one day. I love these mysteries and can't wait for the next the next one.
Mysteries are my favorite, but I love most any well written books.
From the first book I was captivated. The narration is excellent, All-around I highly recommend this book and the entire!
Sci-fi, mystery and action-adventure fan
Another interesting murder mystery in the series. Rhys Bowen books are like your favourite chocolate -- you know what you're going to get and its never disappointing
The Molly Murphy series is wonderful! There is always a great plot, and the characters are so interesting! I certainly hope the series continues and the next book comes soon.
I love Mysteries. May be something I picked as a child listening to Ellery Queen.
Love the returning characters. Have a harder time with the way they interact with each other.
I myself would have difficulties with someone telling me what to do . Feel more self-sufficient as a women. And like to feel my opinion counts for something. Figured out who the perpetrator was early. Still it was GREAT FUN!!
Follow me on Goodreads too!
I don’t know if the books are getting better, or if it’s because by now at Book 14 I know exactly what to expect - therefore get exactly what I want – therefore am never disappointed.
I loved this installment, and I’m so glad Daniel is loosening up on the boorish male attitude towards Molly’s investigations. I hope this is a sign of things to come, I like the idea that they will be a crime-solving duo!!
I’m so looking forward to Book 15.
I have not listened to one of these series for a while. The stories are clever and a pleasure. The historical accuracies are excellent.
