Molly Murphy - now Molly Sullivan - is a year into her marriage, expecting her first child, and confined to the life of a housewife. She's restless and irritable in the heat of a 1904 New York summer. So when a letter arrives addressed to her old detective agency asking her to locate a missing Irish serving maid, Molly figures it couldn't hurt to ask around. On the same day, Molly learns that five babies have been kidnapped in the past month. Even when Daniel sends her away to stay with his mother, Molly cannot ignore these missing children.

One of the best in the series, with lots of suspense and human drama!

As usual Molly is up to her eyeballs in solving mysteries--even after she has promised her new husband, Daniel, that she will stop her detective work. However, their honeymoon starts with Daniel contracting pneumonia, so who else will find out about the secrets of the family in whose cottage they are staying? The story starts with Molly and Daniel caught in a huge rainstorm, spending the night in a stable for lack of other shelter, and a sighting of a ghost in a tower window. Since the local constable doesn't realize that two deaths are murder, what else can Molly do, but find out what's going on? I love the period details. Rhys Bowen does great research.

Another good book in the Molly Murphy series.

How can Gilded Cage take place in 1918 and take place BEFORE this latest book which takes place in 1905? I would love to know the answer to that.
If anyone knows, please explain.

I have read all of the Molly Murphy books and enjoyed the history setting with each one. I hope this isn't the last story for Molly because this wasn't my favorite I especially didn't like the ending. Please let Daniel grow as the other characters have.
