Dead in Dublin (The Dublin Driver Mysteries)
by Catie Murphy
Megan is a classic cozy sleuth. She is curious and tenacious plus she has some soft boundaries that can get her into a bit of trouble as her enthusiastic momentum carries her forward at a steady clip.
~I Read What You Write!
Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy is a refreshing addition to the cozy mystery field and I enjoyed it very much overall.
~The Power of Words
This was a great story. I loved ex-army medic, Molly. She’s a little tougher and more world-wise than a lot of amateur sleuths and has a slightly different perspective.
~The Book’s the Thing
Dead in Dublin is the first in a brand new cozy mystery series and the title gives us a clue as to where this series is set! . . . There were some clever twists and turns and I enjoyed the plot overall.
~CAROLE’S BOOK CORNER
Dead in Dublin is a stimulating new cozy mystery with darling dogs, ineffable Irish charm, a dashing detective, a rash of rumors, and one determined driver.
~The Avid Reader
PHEW! I thought this was going to be a gentle read over a couple of evenings, at 02.00 hours I turned the last page and wanted more!
~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog
Dead in Dublin is a clever beginning to what promises to be an intriguing series with quirky characters and an old-world setting.
~The Cozy Pages
There are plenty of suspects and even more red herrings in this superbly fun tale. It is an atmospheric journey to Ireland for the day with a complex mystery to unravel.
~Diane Reviews Books
Meg dug up a lot of dirt on the victim and I found her a refreshing and strong protagonist. I was totally surprised by the reveal of the killer in this one.
~Melina’s Book Blog
Dead in Dublin was a great start to this series and I loved all the colour cast of characters we meet in this book and hope we meet some again in the next one . . .
DEAD IN DUBLIN is an intriguing mystery filled with Irish charm and a capable protagonist. I look forward to seeing what’s in store for Megan Malone…and those puppies she’s not adopting.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Murphy has created a delightful environment and cast of characters in the new Dublin Driver series set in Ireland. In addition to the fast-moving plot and ample number of suspects and red herrings, the story is filled with entertaining Irish witticisms, local vernacular, and an insider’s view of the city.
~Book Club Librarian
I enjoyed reading this first installment of a new cozy series. I enjoyed that it was set in Ireland which is a place I would love to visit.

In Dublin’s fair city, where the girls are so pretty, murder occurs at the feet of sweet Molly Malone . . .
Ferrying tourists around Dublin for the Leprechaun Limo Service makes quite a change after years in the military. Still, Megan Malone is enjoying her life in Ireland. She likes the scenery, the easy pace, the quirky, quick-witted locals. Everything—except having one of her clients drop dead at the statue of fabled fishmonger, Molly Malone.
Most restaurant critics notch up their share of enemies. Elizabeth Darr, however, was a well-loved international star. She and her husband, Simon, had just had dinner when Elizabeth collapsed, and spoiled seafood is the first suspect. The restaurant’s owner, worried her business is doomed, begs Megan to look into it. Between her irate boss and a handsome Garda who’s both amused and annoyed by her persistence, Megan has her hands full even before she’s cajoled into taking care of two adorable Jack Russell puppies (which she is almost definitely not keeping). But if cockles and mussels aren’t to blame, can Megan find the real culprit . . .before another fishy death occurs?
About Catie Murphy
Catie Murphy, who has written numerous award-winning fantasy and Sci-fi books under the pseudonym C. E. Murphy, began writing around age six, when she submitted three poems to a school publication. The teacher producing the magazine selected (inevitably) the one she thought was by far the worst, but also told her—a six-year-old kid—to keep writing, which she has. She has also held the usual grab-bag of jobs often seen in an authorial biography, including public library volunteer (at ages 9 and 10; it’s clear she was doomed to a career involving books), archival assistant, cannery worker, and web designer. Writing books is better. She was born and raised in Alaska, and now lives with her family in her ancestral homeland of Ireland.
