This is such a good series. Rhys Bowen has a clever way with creating very memorable characters (in this and her other two series). The premise behind this one is interesting. Molly Murphy begins the series as a scared Irish immigrant, literally "just off the boat," and develops into the confident and hard-working young woman we meet by the time we encounter her in this book.
Here she starts by marching with a suffragette's movement and winds up with the other women in jail for their efforts. But this opens connections with the characters who will people this story with her, as she takes on new cases through her private detection agency. Molly is a woman a bit ahead of her time, but her modern ideas do not put off the attentions of her friend, Captain Daniel Sullivan.
You can predictably count on a good read from Rhys Bowen. However, this is the first I have listened to. In the beginning, when Nicola Barber began reading in Molly's voice, I thought they had miraculously found the perfect narrator! However, I'd have to say that I found that the case not so much with the other voices. I loved every word she spoke for Molly, but found the rest to be less engaging, for some reason. Nevertheless, this is an excellent light mystery, and a good read/listen!

.. and that means good! I enjoyed it as much as all the others.
Not much of a review, but by book 8 you don't need advice - if you’re into the series you'll read it no matter what I say!
