About the Book

Brooklyn on Fire: A Mary Handley Mystery

Brooklyn’s most witty and daring detective risks everything to solve a dangerous triple-murder case

After closing a case with the Brooklyn Police Department, Mary Handley is determined to become an official detective in her own right. And when Emily Worsham shows up at her new office --- convinced her uncle John Worsham was murdered and desperate for answers --- Mary’s second assignment begins. 

As she investigates the curious circumstances surrounding John’s death, Mary soon finds herself entangled in a high-stakes family scandal, a series of interconnected murders, political corruption, untrustworthy sources and an unexpected romance with a central member of New York's elite. 

Featuring historic figures like Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller and the Vanderbilt family, BROOKLYN ON FIRE takes Mary on a wild journey from New York City to North Carolina to uncover not only the truth of one man's death, but to unravel the mystery in three murders --- with links tied perilously close to her own personal world.
