(The ninth book in the Molly Murphy series)
Didn't finish reading this, just too trite.
I love all of Rhys Bowen's books.
Another winning installment in this series! Rather than calling Daniel the "bad guy" in this novel, as a couple others have suggested, I would say his whining (and he does whine) adds to the tension of the series. He keeps expecting Molly to conform, as many men of that time would, to middle class standards of what a wife was expected to do. Molly, however, from a lower class (though respectable, I'd say), has grown up working, and, like many New Women, not only expects to work, but enjoys the independence it brings. While I'm disappointed at Molly's decision at the end of the novel, I can see it is made in response to the danger she faces in her latest case. And, without giving away any spoilers, since this is not the last in the series, you can rest assured Molly still finds plenty to do in the future.
Read it; but read the books in order for maximum pleasure.
I really enjoyed this book of the Molly Murphy series because it was an interesting mystery plus I learned more about the Great Houdini and his wife. Plus, she met some other famous people in history. I will agree with the other comment that I thought Daniel played a "bad guy" in this one because his only script seemed to be whining about the wedding date and asking Molly to quit her job.
Plenty of action and excitement and danger, as usual. But ... Daniel is pressuring Molly to set the wedding date, get married from his mother's house in Long Island, and look at a house, (because he doesn't like her house, her neighbours or her friends). He also wants her to quit being a detective. All the way through the book I kept wondering if this is going to be the second-last book in the series. It detracted attention from the story.
