Seven Haughton Murphy novels, now available as eBooks!

Available today: Seven reissued titles from Haughton Murphy! The books, written pseudonymously by James H. Duffy, follow Reuben Frost, a retired Wall Street lawyer with an appetite for martinis, fine dining, and a good mystery. Try as he might to avoid trouble, Frost repeatedly finds himself drawn to the allure of a murder scene, using his knowledge of Wall Street to navigate its most shadowy regions.

That Duffy channels his own past life as a lawyer is evident in the novels, which harness an insider’s understanding of Wall Street life. In many of the books, Frost takes a case to help out his old law firm, Chase & Ward, or one of their clients. This insider's perspective was praised by Kirkus Reviews, which called “Murphy's sketches of Wall Street law-life ... shrewd, deglamorizing, [and] drily amusing."

But the books aren’t only concerned with finance. In Murder Takes a Partner, Frost investigates a deadly conspiracy in the ballet world. In A Very Venetian Murder, he investigates high fashion after the murder of a top designer interrupts his Venice vacation. No matter the subject, though, Frost’s detection discovers unexpected results, in a satisfying and humorous mystery.

The newest Houghton Murphy mystery, Murder.com, will be out in paperback and eBook in July. In the meantime, dig into this delightful set of Reuben Frost mysteries!
