With Molly Murphy’s marriage ceremony to NYPD Captain Daniel Sullivan quickly drawing close, the Irish sleuth heads to the Westchester County countryside, where his mom can lend her a hand and suggest her on a bride’s right position. And shockingly, Molly seems to be agreeing. She has already promised that she’ll close up her PI enterprise and settle down after marrying, but she isn’t a married girl yet. So, whilst she will get notice of a potential case, she sneaks again into the town to squeeze in a bit extra sleuthing before the marriage bells can ring.
A wealthy chinese language immigrant wishes her to find his lacking bride, and Molly---sure she isn’t getting the whole story---suspects that his bride ran off. yet the place may perhaps she go? The in basic terms chinese language ladies in early-twentieth-century ny are saved below lock and key, and Molly can’t support yet ask yourself if she’s saving the girl from the streets or supporting to fasten her away for good.
Rhys Bowen’s deft contact and fascinating wit make Bless the Bride another stellar addition to her Anthony and Agatha Award--winning old sequence.
