ll That Is Hidden
is the nineteenth (following
Wild Irish Rose
) in Rhys Bowen's charming historical mystery series, now written along with her daughter Clare Broyles. Ex-PI Molly Murphy is wed to New York police Captain Daniel Sullivan. They have a small son, Liam, and a teen ward, Bridie, and live happily in Patchin Place, Greenwich Village - especially now that Daniel's mother has returned to her own home.
his episode opens in New York in the Fall of 1907. Daniel is embroiled in politics, running for the position of sheriff of New York on Big Bill McCormick's Tammany ticket. This seems to go against Daniel's principles but he won't explain his actions to Molly. They're given use of a Fifth Avenue mansion, with servants - a lifestyle that makes Molly quite uncomfortable - though both Liam and Bridie seem to enjoy it.
ll proceeds as planned until murder strikes and, as always, Molly is determined to help Daniel solve the case. She does more than that, preventing further killings very close to home - and then life goes back to normal for the Sullivans once more, after one last delightful surprise.
