Murphy's Law is the captivating first entry of Rhys Bowen’s New York Times best-selling Molly Murphy series.
Molly Murphy always knew she'd end up in trouble, just as her mother predicted. So, when she commits murder in self-defense, she flees her cherished Ireland, under cover of a false identity, for the anonymous shores of late 19th-century America. When she arrives in New York and sees the welcoming promise of freedom in the Statue of Liberty, Molly begins to breathe easier. But when a man is murdered on Ellis Island, a man Molly was seen arguing with, she becomes a prime suspect in the crime.
If she can't clear her name, Molly will be sent back to Ireland where the gallows await, so using her Irish charm and sharp wit, she escapes Ellis Island and sets out to find the wily killer on her own. Pounding the notorious streets of Hell's Kitchen and the Lower East Side, Molly undertakes a desperate mission to clear her name before her deadly past comes back to haunt her new future.

- Jan "Tangential, eclectic, avid listener... favorite book is the one currently in ear."
A clean mystery.
This was a great read.
Molly is such a great character, full of fire and persistence.
I haven't listened to Nicola Barber before but I loved her performance. She has a great voice and does the accents well,
I like to listen to Audio books in the car with my family. It is difficult to find adult books that are appropriate for my young kids to listen to. I do love to listen to kids and young adult books but it is so refreshing to listen to an adult mystery that is not full of sex and graphic violence. This book does have a love interest and there is some kissing but nothing graphic or that I would feel uncomfortable with my kids hearing. The book is a murder mystery and so there are a few deaths in the book, but no graphic violence. I look forward to listening to all the Molly Murphy mysteries.
