Waiting on Wednesday for January 29th

It's been a couple of months, but I'm back with another Waiting on Wednesday.

This week's book is City of Darkness and Light, the latest Molly Murphy mystery by Rhys Bowen.

This is a historical mystery series set in the very early 1900's.  Usually the action takes place in New York City, but this book will find Molly and her new baby need to get out of town, so they are heading to stay with Molly's dear friends Sid and Gus.  Sid and Gus just happen to be staying in Paris soaking up the artist scene over there.  It sounds great since the mob might be coming after Molly's husband Daniel since he just arrested some big members.

However, when Molly and her baby get to Paris, they find themselves in just as much danger.  And since Sid and Gus aren't around, Molly is on her own in a new city.

I love this city because it is a time machine.  From page one until I reach the end, I'm 100 years in the past.  I'll miss New York City this time around, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens to Molly in Paris.

The book's release date is March 4th, but I'm lucky enough to have gotten an ARC, so my review will be up in two or three weeks.  Stay tuned to see what I thought.


  1. I love that cover. Hope you can stop by mine.

    1. All of the books in this series have really great covers.

  2. Good review, Mark! I enjoy Bowen's other series (Her Royal Spyness) and really liked the Constable Evans books as well, but for one reason and another, I've not yet gotten around to starting this series. On the one hand, I'm clearly missing out on a great series. On the other hand, I've got a whole series to look forward to!

    1. I started with Constable Evans about the time that Molly was first starting, so I've been reading Molly as they were published. I do miss Evans. And yes, I really enjoy Georgie, too.

      You need to start visiting Molly. If you like those two series, you'll enjoy this one as well.
