A fan of Molly Murphy and turn of the 20th century detective novels, this book is a necessary read to grasp Molly's evolution from a newly arrived immigrant to her fledgling career as a detective.
This is a series for which it is highly beneficial to read in sequential order, as characters lives and relationships evolve from one novel to the next.
Molly is plucky, red haired and Irish (including the infamous temper) and always one step away from disaster. She is highly independent for a woman at the turn of the 1900's and would rather get into a predicament from which she has to extricate herself (often with need of help), rather than have to depend on the services of an infuriating man, notably the captain of the New York Police. They have mutual feelings for each other but the situation is complex.
THIRD BOOK IN MOLLY MURPHY SERIES. AVAILABLE IN HARDCOVER ONLY.
Irish immigrant Molly Murphy is trying to make her way alone as a private investigator. She wants to fend for herself and not be dependent on anyone else. She goes undercover in a dressmaking factory to find out who is stealing the designs and selling them to the competition. She also gets a request to find an English gentleman’s missing daughter who ran off with an unsavory, unscrupulous young man. In this story Molly becomes involved in women's rights and unions and finds a good friendship with Jacob Singer, a union leader. This story introduces several new characters. Now she has both Jacob and police detective Daniel wanting a life time commitment. I look forward to the next story in the series -- In Like Flynn.
This is the 3rd book in the Molly Murphy series. The topic this time is the garment district of New York as the unions are trying to form to help the workers. If the conditions in the garment business were half as bad as portrayed in this book, they were horrible. To me the book was a little long, it seemed the author was trying to include every possible situation the workers could have gone through.
