Harry Houdini's wife hires Irish immigrant private investigator Molly Murphy to investigate the on-stage death of a magician's assistant, in the hopes of clearing Houdini's name and finding the person truly responsible for the death. (Mystery & detective). By the author of
Newly engaged, spunky private detective Molly Murphy and police officer Daniel Sullivan were hoping for a fun night out on the town, and celebrity magician Harry Houdini's show seemed like the perfect diversion. The fun comes to an abrupt stop, however, when the opening act literally saws his assistant in half! And then when that corpse disappears, Houdini's wife's suspicions that someone has it out for her husband start to seem more and more credible. Daniel sees this as a matter for the police--and he doesn't want Molly involved in such a dangerous case. Despite the tension it might create in her relationship, however, Rhys Bowen's independent heroine isn't about to let a good investigation slip her by.
