Publisher's Summary

Brooklyn's most witty and daring detective risks everything to solve a dangerous triple-murder case.

After closing a case with the Brooklyn Police Department, Mary Handley is determined to become an official detective in her own right. And when Emily Worsham shows up at her new office - convinced her uncle, John Worsham, was murdered and desperate for answers - Mary's second assignment begins.

As she investigates the curious circumstances surrounding John's death, Mary soon finds herself entangled in a high-stakes family scandal, a series of interconnected murders, political corruption, untrustworthy sources, and an unexpected romance with a central member of New York's elite.

Featuring historic figures like Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and the Vanderbilt family, Brooklyn on Fire takes Mary on a wild journey from New York City to North Carolina to uncover not only the truth of one man's death but to unravel the mystery in three murders - with links tied perilously close to her own personal world.

Critic Reviews

"Book clubs rejoice! A new mystery series has arrived on bookshelves and it's spectacular. Lovers of historical fiction and mystery, humor and social mores, will love Brooklyn on Fire. Detective Mary Handley is a total original. Deft, wise, and ambitious, Handley has a moral center and a longing heart. Her world can not confine her." (Adriana Trigiani, New York Times best-selling author of The Shoemaker's Wife)
"Levy's engaging second Mary Handley mystery...[a] charming historical." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Levy does a fine job of mixing historical characters and situations with his feisty, liberated detective." ( Kirkus Reviews)
