I've just discovered Rhys Bowen's MOLLY MURPHY series, and am reading MURPHY'S LAW, about an Irish immigrant to the United States in the early 20th century who gets caught up in a murder investigation.  You really have the feeling that you're walking through the tenement slums of the growing city.  It's easy to see why Bowen is a New York Times best-selling author.


I'm re-watching the 2005-2007 HBO series, ROME.  I usually have to avert my eyes at some of the gore, but there are several compelling storylines, and I can't help watching any period pieces!
