Description

Murphy's Law is the captivating first entry of Rhys Bowen's New York Times bestselling Molly Murphy series.

Meet Molly Murphy, a resourceful young woman who lives by her own set of laws...

Molly Murphy always knew she'd end up in trouble, just as her mother had predicted. So when she commits murder in self-defence, she flees her cherished Ireland for the anonymous shores of America. When she arrives in New York and sees the welcoming promise of freedom in the Statue of Liberty, Molly begins to breathe a little easier. But when a man is murdered on Ellis Island, a man Molly was seen arguing with, she becomes a prime suspect in the crime.

If she can't clear her name, Molly will be sent back to Ireland where the gallows await, so using her Irish charm and sharp wit, she escapes Ellis Island and sets out to find the wily killer on her own. Pounding the notorious streets of Hell's Kitchen and the Lower East Side, Molly undertakes a desperate mission to clear her name before her deadly past comes back to haunt her new future.

'Irish humour and gritty determination... with charm and optimism.' Anne Perry

'Molly grows ever more engaging against a vibrant background of New York's dark side at the turn of the century.' Kirkus Reviews
