“Using her passions for both history and science as well as her abundant writer’s gifts, Lynne Kennedy has created the best kind of historical mystery. Her new novel transports us to another time and place yet offers truths that apply to the present. The story engages us with plight of workers who faced the ultimate terror when fire claimed the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in 1911. Nearly as infamous in its time as is the attack on the World Trade Center in ours, the Triangle fire remains the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of New York City. Only now, in Ms. Kennedy’s The Triangle Murders, is the mystery behind the tragedy finally solved.”

– Ken Kuhlken, author of the Tom Hickey’s California crime series

“The Triangle Murders is a great read!  The story uses a compelling real life incident  —  the Triangle Factory fire of 1911 – as the foundation for a story about a murder which happens in present day New York.  The author skillfully guides us back to the past to witness the original horrific event and weaves a gripping tale about two people, a man and his great-grandfather, both dedicated policemen who navigate the treacherous waters of political corruption at their own peril to solve the mystery of two murders, past and present.  This book is both a good history lesson and an engaging story.”

“Author Lynne Kennedy ingeniously weaves together a modern story with the history of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in a way that kept me in suspense and turning pages. This is a fascinating story with many surprises including how modern technology is used to help shed light solving the mystery. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in looking at historical events with new eyes.”
