After a long streak of avoiding murder investigations, Dublin limo driver Megan Malone thought her life had finally settled . . . but even her Irish luck can’t keep her out of trouble forever in Catie Murphy’s fourth Ireland-set cozy mystery…
It’s been over a year since Megan found herself entangled in a murder—much to everyone’s relief, including her girlfriend Jelena and Detective Paul Bourke. So when a body of a young woman quite literally lands in her lap at her favorite Dublin café, Megan tries to do the right thing and leave the crime-solving to the police so she can enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day weekend. After all, she has no connection to the victim. Or does she?
Megan’s latest client, world-renowned romance novelist Claire Woodward, is fascinated by Megan’s own history of catching killers. Claire also just happens to be the murder victim’s literary mentor. So maybe Megan can just sort of stay on the periphery of the case while trying to help out? Just a wee bit without causing too much fuss? Even Detective Bourke would approve since he has personal reasons not to trust Claire. The investigation leads Megan to the victim’s writing group, who think that Claire has plagiarized the poor young lady’s work. And when another member of the group is found dead, Megan will have to step up her sleuthing before the killer decides to write her off for good.

Praise for Dublin Driver Mystery Series by Catie Murphy
“There is so much to like about the cozy perfection that is Catie Murphy’s Death on the Green, from the lush Irish travelogue to the precise balance between comic relief and crime.” —Bookpage STARRED REVIEW for Death on the Green “Cleverly blends rivalries on and off the golf course with colorful characters as a plucky limo driver takes the wheel again.” —Kirkus Reviews on Death on the Green “I strongly recommend that you drop whatever plans you had made, sit down with DEATH ON THE GREEN, and catch up with the deeds of Megan Malone, who is fast becoming my favorite amateur sleuth on my side of the Atlantic.” —Fresh Fiction on Death on the Green “Murphy’s Dublin feels immersive and authentic, and even minor characters add depth and detail. Orla Keegan, Megan’s boss at the limo company and also her landlord, is a prickly delight, harsh and demanding but fair when the situation demands it. This is an auspicious series debut, and hopefully the luck of the Irish will hold for many more stories to come.” —Bookpage, STARRED REVIEW on Dead in Dublin
“[Murphy’s] irrepressible debut provides a lively entry in the Dublin Driver Mysteries. A bad review can kill a restaurant—but what if a restaurant kills a reviewer?” —Kirkus Reviewson Dead in Dublin
“Dead in Dublin serves up an interesting whodunit story as it helps push the cozy mystery genre forward into the new decade. One cannot help but be curious to see how this new series unfolds.” —Criminal Element on Dead in Dublin
