Publisher's Summary

In turn-of-the-century New York City, Irish immigrant Molly Murphy is contemplating giving up PI work for something a little less complicated, less exciting. Molly has had quite enough excitement recently, thank you very much. Especially from the handsome but deceptive NYPD captain Daniel Sullivan, whom she'd like to avoid completely. But when Daniel is accused of accepting bribes and lands himself in the Tombs, the notorious city jail, he begs Molly to help prove he was framed, and after everything they've been through, she cannot turn him down.

As she finds herself drawn further and further into the case, she begins to fear that Daniel's trouble is related to one of his investigations - catching the Eastside Ripper, a serial killer who is targeting prostitutes.

Oh Danny Boy marks Edgar Award finalist Rhys Bowen's triumphant fifth installment in the award-winning Molly Murphy mystery series.

    Story
    "Rhys Bowen is a wonderful writer"
    Would you listen to Oh Danny Boy again? Why?

    Molly Murphy and the cast of characters in her books I have come to love. She keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what next crisis Molly will land in. The Characters are continually deepened and I find most of them quite endearing.


    What about Nicola Barber’s performance did you like?

    Nicola Barber is excellent with her accents and the emotion she brings to her voices

    "Becoming too repetitive"

    WhilecI love the main characters, I have tired of the repeated themes: female nievte, male stpidlity and forbidding that will obviosly spur the heroine on, etc.

    "My feet hurt"

    I just don't think I could walk all the miles that Molly walks everyday and then climb the flights of stairs. Coming from New York I know those streets and alleyways and it makes my feet hurt just listening ... Once again a great listen. Eleanor

    "Even my husband would enjoy this!"
    What does Nicola Barber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does great accents, particularly Irish ones! Great character differentiation, brings Molly to life brilliantly. Very entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    I've considered Molly Murphy "chic lit" up until this book, and I apologize to the author for unfairly pigeonholing her work. This is a very mature murder story, given that it is also historical fiction, and has to keep pace with a character who is learning the ropes as a detective. I enjoyed the storyline, though the ending was predictable, the early 20th century NYC setting, and the issues facing women of that era. I really like Molly and her friends.... it's a crime novel with warmth and heart, great pace and enough suspense to keep you hooked! My husband likes pacy crime novels and I think I'll try the next one on him......

    "Another solid entry in the Molly Murphy series"

    Interesting for all the events that take place. I don't know that it would be likely in turn of the 20th century New York, but it's possible, and interesting to see Molly there.

    Story
    "Molly works to vindicate Daniel"

    I liked this story of Daniel asking for Molly's help. Though he only asked her to be a messenger, she searched for clues as to who framed him. She's also motivated to free him for personal reasons. Along the way she befriends an exceptional woman who's an undercover policewoman. Though I figured out the culprit early on, I didn't know the motive until near the end. One of the things I like about Molly is her compassion for the less fortunate. In this book she sees the humanity of prostitutes.

    I was disappointed that Molly chose not to tell Daniel all that she did on his behalf as well as what happened to her. He deserved to know all regardless of her pain. However, I am very weary of Daniel's "I forbid" orders to Molly. His domineering is tiresome & reflects a lack of respect of her and her growing detective skills.

    Story
    "Another Good Story"

    I enjoyed the mystery and history in this story. While the entire series is early 20th century, I appreciated the small insight into the Irish culture of that same period and reflections of the previous century. The story was good, although there were times I thought is was wordy and lagging and just the opposite at the end...quick ending. I didn't feel all of the threads were tied up, but that could be part of the authors future books.
