RHYS BOWEN    Book Number: 82347    Product format: Hardback

By the author of the Evan Evans and Royal Spyness series, British born Rhys Bowen is one of the greatest mystery writers working today, known for her quick wit and sharp mind which makes Molly Murphy a protagonist to root for. It is Christmas time in 1905 in New York City and for once, Molly Murphy Sullivan is looking forward to the holidays. She and Daniel have a baby son, and 12 year old Bridie is living with them as their ward. As they listen to carollers in the street, they hear a lovely voice, the voice of an angel, and see a beggar girl huddled in a doorway singing 'Away In A Manger'. They want to help out and give her a quarter, only to watch a bigger boy take it away from her. Molly discovers the boy is the girl's older brother and that they have come from England, their mother has disappeared, and they are living with an aunt who mistreats them terribly. Molly realises that these children are not usual city waifs, but well spoken and clearly used to better things. But what has happened to their mother? Molly tries to help and gets drawn in to an investigation that will take her up to the highest levels of New York society. 247pp in US first edition. Remainder mark.
