From the author of In Farleigh Field... In turn-of-the-century New York City, Irish immigrant Molly Murphy is contemplating giving up PI work for something a little less complicated, less exciting. Molly has had quite enough excitement recently, thank you very much. Especially from the handsome but deceptive NYPD captain Daniel Sullivan, whom she'd like to avoid completely. But when Daniel is accused of accepting bribes and lands himself in the Tombs, the notorious city jail, he begs Molly to help prove he was framed, and after everything they've been through, she cannot turn him down. As she finds herself drawn further and further into the case, she begins to fear that Daniel's trouble is related to one of his investigations-catching the Eastside Ripper, a serial killer who is targeting prostitutes. Oh Danny Boy marks Edgar Award finalist Rhys Bowen's triumphant fifth installment in her New York Times bestselling Molly Murphy mystery series.

Zunächst hatte der Journalist und politische Berichterstatter der «Tribune» nicht geglaubt, was ihm sein angetrunkener Kollege McDaniels erzählt hatte. Er, McDaniels, sei einem Riesenfinanzskandal auf der Spur, da bliebe genug übrig vom Kuchen, daß auch Cotton seinen Teil abbekäme. Und keine sieben Minuten später hört er einen Schrei, und man findet Merrill McDaniels tot unten im Treppenhaus. Wer aber war dann der Mann, der McDaniels’ Notizbuch suchte? Hatte er es überhaupt auf dem chaotischen Schreibtisch gefunden? Nach einer feuchtfröhlichen Pokerrunde erfährt Cotton, daß sein Kollege Whitey Robbins tödlich verunglückt ist – mit seinem Wagen, den Cotton ihm geliehen hatte. Von weitem könnte man die beiden Männer durchaus verwechseln. Nun ist sich Cotton sicher, daß auch der Tod McDaniels’ kein Unfall, Zufall oder sonstiger Unglücksfall gewesen ist. Er weiß, daß ein Reporter unter Umständen so lange in Gefahr schwebt, bis seine Ermittlungen abgeschlossen sind und die Story veröffentlicht ist. Aber wie soll er eine Story veröffentlichen, wenn er keine Ahnung hat, woran McDaniels gearbeitet hat, wenn dessen Unterlagen eher Hieroglyphen denn eine Hilfe sind. Als er schließlich in seiner Wohnung eine Zigarrenkiste mit einem Scherzartikel und den Hinweis findet, es hätte auch eine Bombe sein können, nimmt er den Ratschlag wohlweislich an, aus der Stadt zu verschwinden. Aber dann merkt Cotton, daß der Ratschlag zwar wohlweislich war, aber nicht aus seiner Perspektive.

From the author of In Farleigh Field... Evan Evans is a young police constable who has traded in the violence of city life for idyllic Llanfair, a Welsh village tucked far away from trouble. Nestled among the Snowdonia mountain range, Llanfair looks to Constable Evans like a town forgotten by time, but he quickly learns that even the bucolic countryside has its share of eccentric--and deadly--characters. Evans' new neighbors include two competitive ministers vying for the souls of their flock, one lascivious barmaid, and three other Evanses: Evan-the-Meat, Evans-the-Milk, and Evans-the-Post (whose favorite hobby is to read the mail before he delivers it). Before Evans has time to sort through the complicated relationships and rivalries of his new home, he's called to the scene of a crime as brutal and fearsome as any he encountered in the big city. Two hikers have been murdered on the trails of the local mountain, and Evans must hunt down a vicious killer--who may or may not be linked to the mysterious destruction of Mrs. Powell-Jones' prize-winning tomatoes. Evans Above is the first novel in Rhys Bowen's popular Constable Evans Mystery Series.

From the author of In Farleigh Field... The charming village of Llanfair, the setting for Rhys Bowen's beloved Constable Evans mysteries, sits amid lush, rolling Welsh meadows populated with quaint cottages and is considered by many of its colorful locals to be a kind of paradise. Unfortunately, there aren't many opportunities for young people in Llanfair, so when an exciting and glamorous American woman breezes into town talking of dormant psychic powers and important social research, barmaid Betsy Edwards is quick to take her up on an offer of employment at the recently opened Sacred Grove New Age center not far away. Of course the locals, including the village constable, Evan Evans, think Betsy has gone around the bend, not to mention the nutty American who dragged her off to be "tested." Betsy, though, is dazzled at the possibility of exploring her own sixth sense. And she's only a little surprised when her new powers are put to a real-life test; when the center's flamboyant director goes missing, clues to his fate mysteriously appear in Betsy's dreams. It's a tantalizing mystery for lonely Betsy, who can't help doing a little investigating on her own. But Constable Evans has been involved with Sacred Grove before-looking for a missing American college student who was lured there by Druid worship. As Betsy does her own sleuthing on the spot, Evan comes to realize that there is nothing straightforward about this case and that Betsy has no idea at all of the terrible danger she is in, in Evans to Betsy.
