If you start on this book, be prepared to read all the sequels. You won't be able to put them down! The historical information is accurate and well-researched. Rhys Bowen truly does her homework and makes New York, Ellis Island, and Molly Murphy come alive. Enjoy!

Good Beginning to series
The story begins with a woman from Ireland fleeing after an attempted rape and subsequent murder. Once she arrives in NY another murder occurs and she is again a suspect. The story is entertaining and the main character is certainly likeable. The only problem I had was the somewhat predictable way in which the novel wrapped up.
