Murphy’s Law (Molly Murphy) Publisher: Minotaur Books Mass Market Paperback – 2002 by Rhys Bowen (Author) Review

I am a big fan of Rhys Bowen, having read her A Royal Spyness Mystery novel. I had not read any of the Molly Murphy Mystery, which is why I chose this one. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the history in the book and the characters. Molly is an adventurous woman ahead of her time and one whom you enjoy getting to know. I will be reading more in this series. This book keeps your interest and I found myself neglecting other duties to read so I could see how Molly deals with the problems in the book. -Read Reviews-

What a gigantic disappointment. Poorly plotted and every time she got in trouble the writer created a silly coincidence to explain the situation away. In this story her husband, a NYPD police captain was handpicked by the Secret Service to ride the rails all the way to San Francisco to help with a land fraud investigation, certainly not a mandate of the Secret Service. The SS was created primarily to protect the president and to investigate currency counterfeiting. That the story’s small crime of land fall would have risen to the level of the president is ridiculous. That he needed to send a coded message by letter to our heroine pining away in NYC is also ridiculous. Finally, the revelations gotten on the train ride back to NYC were even sillier. This lazy writing and lazy plotting. And for someone who has written so many books the writer should know the difference between "further" and "farther. " For her information, farther correctly denotes distance. Silly, silly, silly. Roger
