Rhys Bowen: The Molly Murphy and Constable Evans Mysteries
Rhys Bowen, award-winning author of the Constable Evans and Molly Murphy mysteries, will speak and sign at Bloomsbury Books in Ashland on Friday, May 11th at 7:30 pm. If you miss Rhys at Bloomsbury on Friday, you can meet her at Barnes and Noble in Medford on Saturday at 2 pm. Both events are free and open to the public.
Bowen is on tour
with the latest Molly Murphy mysteries, Oh Danny Boy
(St Martins, 2006) and In Dublin’s Fair City (St.
Martins, 2007), set in turn-of-the-century old New York. You’ll be
delighted with Molly’s brash Irish charm and the cultural and
historical insights that enhance the suspense and pace of the
mystery. In Oh Danny Boy, Molly investigates a serial
killer who targets prostitutes on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
The Drood Review says, “The most pervasive character in the
Molly Murphy books is New York City itself. Bowen, always a
professional, conveys such a strong sense of the turn-of-the-century
city that you can smell it. If you don't love New York, and Molly,
when you begin, you will by the
time you finish."
Rhys Bowen's visit to Southern Oregon is sponsored by the Ashland Mystery Readers Group and the Friends of the Ashland Public Library.
