Searching for the long-lost sister of an Irish-American impresario, P.I. Molly Murphy leaves turn-of-the-century New York to head back to her native Ireland, only to be confronted by the murder of her maid and the disappearance of a famed Irish actress.

McMillan Palgrave

When New York theatre impresario Tommy Burke asks Molly Murphy to help him take care of some family business back in Ireland, Molly is happy to oblige. Tempted by the prospect of going home for the first time in years (and putting her fledging detective agency on firm financial ground), Molly throws caution to the wind and climbs aboard the White Start LinerMajestic with hopes of sneaking on and off the isle without raising a peep. Until one passenger, who happens to be a famous Broadway actress goes missing--and another turns up dead. So much for smooth sailing….

(The sixth book in the Molly Murphy series)

This book was a little different than the traditional Molly Murphy mystery. I loved the fact that the traditional characters were only in the opening. It was also interesting to learn about the Irish revolution from England.
