about this item
Irish sleuth Molly Murphy is hired to find a girl on the run in Chinatown only to find that the man who wanted her found has been killed in Rhys Bowen's tenth in this award-winning series.
From the author of In Farleigh Field...
With Molly Murphy's wedding to NYPD Captain Daniel Sullivan quickly approaching, the Irish sleuth heads to the Westchester County countryside, where his mother can lend her a hand and advise her on a bride's proper place. And shockingly, Molly seems to be agreeing. She has already promised that she'll close up her PI business and settle down after marrying, but she isn't a married woman yet. So, when she gets word of a possible case, she sneaks back into the city to squeeze in a little more sleuthing before the wedding bells can ring.
A wealthy Chinese immigrant wants her to find his missing bride, and Molly---sure she isn't getting the whole story---suspects that his bride ran off. But where could she go? The only Chinese women in early-twentieth-century New York are kept under lock and key, and Molly can't help but wonder if she's saving the woman from the streets or helping to lock her away for good.
Rhys Bowen's deft touch and charming wit make Bless the Bride another stellar addition to her Anthony and Agatha Award--winning historical series.
