"Molly Murphy Sullivan's husband Daniel, a police captain in turn-of-the-century New York City, is in a precarious position. The new police commissioner wants him off the force altogether. So when Daniel's offered an assignment from John Wilkie, head of the secret service, he's eager to accept. Molly can't draw any details of the assignment out of him, even where he'll be working. But when she spots him in San Francisco during a movie news segment, she starts to wonder if he's in even more danger than she had first believed. And then she receives a strange and cryptic letter from him, leading her to conclude that he wants her to join him in San Francisco. Molly knows that if Daniel's turning to her rather than John Wilkie or his contacts in the police force, something must have gone terribly wrong. What can she do for him that the police can't? Especially when she doesn't even know what his assignment is? Embarking on a cross-country journey with her young son, Molly can't fathom what's in store for her, but she knows it might be dangerous in fact, it might put all of their lives at risk"--

(Book 16 in the Molly Murphy series)

Thoroughly enjoyed Molly's escapades during the San Francisco 1906 earthquake and fire.

As with the previous books in this series, Molly, her husband, Daniel, and her friends, Sid and Gus, are charming and breaking the conventions of their time. This came out just in time for the anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and fire. Daniel has a secret assignment in San Francisco. Molly finds out where he has gone from a newsreel and a mysterious letter from Daniel. We ride a train west with Molly and Liam, her infant son, catch a glimpse of Caruso, and find that reports of Daniel's death have been greatly exaggerated. Together, after the earthquake, they find Liam, who has disappeared with his Chinese nanny, and camp out in Golden Gate Park until they can inform General Funston of their discoveries about graft in the government of San Francisco and a murder in the house of a socialite, and catch a train back to New York. A fun read, but a little light on motivation and logical plotline.
