Lawrence H. Levy in his new book “Brooklyn On Fire book coverBrooklyn On Fire” Book Two in the Mary Handley Mystery series published by Broadway Books gives us another adventure with Mary Handley.

From the back cover:  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–offering a life of luxury Mary fears she could get used to.

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.

Get ready to be transported back to 1890. This is high quality historical fiction  Lawrence H. Levy has written a page-turning thriller.  Mary Handley’s second case and it is a doozy, a triple-murder.  Mr. Levy has given us a terrific character that we root for and want to succeed and hang out with in Mary Handley.  Maybe a few times you might see what is coming next but that is because you are good.  Most times you will be blindsided and you will want to read faster to keep up with the action.  Get ready for a very interesting read that will keep you flipping pages.
