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!

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.

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.

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.

A different twist

This is a book of two distinct tales. I really enjoyed it and it takes the series in a bit of a different direction. I do miss Molly's chums (Sid, Gus and Ryan) who make only a brief appearance.

Did In Dublin's Fair City inspire you to do anything?

almost not finish the series

Any additional comments?

I love Rhys Bowen. Ive previously read her royal spins series. this latest book in the molly murphy series almost did me inwe all know Molly does some risky/dumb stuff then bemoans her decisions for a chapter but her actions in this book border on insane/ridiculous/moronic. If someone presented me with the plan they presented her for the prison break....and why risk going to Ireland at all? she's wanted and why not ask...how do I get home. it was nice to have a book without Daniel. I hope he gets more likable in the next book because he is a tedious jerk this book seems written for the sake of pushing out a book

Better than Royal Spyness

I was hesitant to start this series because I feared it wouldn't be as good as the Royal Spyness series, which I have enjoyed a lot. But I like it even better. The mysteries are less silly, Molly is smarter and spunkier, it is less repetitive, and the stories are meatier. I'd even say the narrator is just add good, which I didn't think was possible. I've been flying through them, and I'll be sad when they are over.

Wonderful!

I loved this book. So emotional, I felt like I was there in the middle of the Irish fight for independence. Highly recommended.

Disappointing Narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Disappointing fact finding & research regarding Irish places

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Narratation would be improved if proper pronunciation was used. It is not difficult to find out how to pronounce Irish names & French placenames. Let the story down.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nicola Barber’s performances?

Possibly not in this series.

Was In Dublin's Fair City worth the listening time?

Overall, not too bad.

Any additional comments?

Some accents are a distraction
