Publisher Comments:

Lively and colorful, full of absorbing historical detail and delightful characters, Tell Me, Pretty Maiden is another gem in Rhys Bowens multiple award-winning series.

TELL ME, PRETTY MAIDEN

Its wintertime in New York, and for the first time since Irish immigrant Molly Murphy started her early-twentieth-century detective agency, she is completely snowed in with work. While shes very much in demand by some of Broadways brightest stars and Fifth Avenues richest families, Molly must admit that its time for her to get some help. Her beau, the recently and wrongly suspended police captain Daniel Sullivan, would make an ideal associate. But before Molly and he can agree on the terms of his employment, they stumble upon a young woman lying unconscious in the middle of a snow-covered Central Park. When the woman wakes up, she is disorientated and has and lost her ability to speak. The authorities are about to pack her off to an insane asylum—but Molly cant help but step in and take on yet another stormy case… “For readers who love mysteries more for character development than puzzle solving, the seventh Molly Murphy novel… does not disappoint.” —Booklist “Sharp historical backgrounds and wacky adventures.”

—Kirkus Reviews
