COMING MARCH 4: #13 IN THE MOLLY MURPHY SERIES   CITY OF DARKNESS AND LIGHT.

Threats to Molly’s life find her setting sail for the city of Paris and a safe haven… only the haven turns out to be anything but safe when she gets there. Searching for her missing friends in the bohemian art world of post-Impressionist Paris, Molly becomes drawn into a murder investigation of a prominent Impressionist–an investigation that may have something to do with the disappearance of her friends. Rich in historic detail of Paris in 1905, this has been described as a “sparkling” addition to the Molly series, and “the best yet.”

 

Louise Penny, #1 New York Times Bestselling author says of this book:  “Atmospheric, tightly plotted, heart-pounding–this is Bowen at her best.”
