For the first time in trade paperback, the winning second entry in Bowen's New York Times bestselling series.
Molly Murphy has finally begun to forget the unpleasant murder of a would-be rapist back in Ireland, not to mention her investigation into the murder of a fellow Irish immigrant, and is free to begin her life in New York City. Given her experiences so far in the New World, Molly's first order of business is to become a private investigator, working for families in Europe who've lost touch with relatives in America. Her second order of business is to hook the handsome NYPD police captain Daniel Sullivan, and she envisions lots of opportunities to "seek his counsel" in her new profession.
Paddy Riley is a tough old Cockney P.I. who specializes in divorce work, and with a little persuasion he's ready to take on Molly as an apprentice. It's not exactly what she imagined, but she plans to make the most of it. That is, until she comes to work one day to find her new world turned upside down. Before long, Molly has set off on a journey that will take her through the back alleys of Manhattan and into the bars and lounges of the literary scene, where she spends time with writers, actors, poets, and musicians.
Armed with nothing more than her fiery will and matching wild red hair, Molly has no idea of the danger her pursuit may bring in Death of Riley, a fascinating, well-researched, and suspenseful second novel in Bowen's bestselling series.
