Molly is married to policeman Daniel Sullivan and wondering how to be a model wife. Their honeymoon in posh Newport, Rhode Island, tests her…. Hush Now, Don’t You Cry(St Martins $24.99)
In the latest Rhys Bowen’s award-winning historical series, Molly Murphy is supposed to give up sleuthing now that she’s married, but the murder of an alderman puts her on the trail of a killer. Molly Murphy, now Molly Sullivan, and her husband Daniel, a captain in the New York Police department, have been invited to spend their honeymoon on the Newport, RI, estate of Alderman Brian Hanna in the spring of 1904. Molly doesn’t entirely trust the offer. Hanna – an ambitious man – has his eye on a senate seat and intentions of taking Tammany Hall to get it. When Hanna is found dead at the base of the cliffs that overlook the Atlantic, Molly’s suspicions are quicklyjustified, and as much as she wants to keep her promise to Daniel that she won’t do any more sleuthing now, there isn’t much she can do once the chase is on. Rhys Bowen’s brilliant wit and charm are on full display in Hush Now, Don’t You Cry, another outstanding addition to her Agatha and Anthony award-winning historical series.
