It's wintertime in New York, and for the first time since Irish immigrant Molly Murphy started her early-twentieth-century detective agency, she is completely snowed in with work. While she's very much in demand by some of Broadway's brightest stars and Fifth Avenue's richest families, Molly must admit that it's time for her to get some help. Her beau, the recently and wrongly suspended police captain Daniel Sullivan, would make an ideal associate. But before Molly and he can agree on the terms of his employment, they stumble upon a young woman lying unconscious in the middle of a snow-covered Central Park. When the woman wakes up, she is disorientated and has and lost her ability to speak. The authorities are about to pack her off to an insane asylum--but Molly can't help but step in and take on yet another stormy case....
Lively and colorful, full of absorbing historical detail and delightful characters, "Tell Me, Pretty Maiden" is another gem in Rhys Bowen's multiple award-winning series.
“Winning…It’s all in a day’s work for this delightfully spunky heroine.”—Publishers Weekly“For readers who love mysteries more for character development than puzzle solving, the seventh Molly Murphy novel… does not disappoint.” —Booklist “Sharp historical backgrounds and wacky adventures.”—Kirkus Reviews
