Start by marking “Murphy's Law: Complete” as Want to Read: For more than a quarter of a century, Murphy's Law has provided the last word on things going wrong. Murphy’s Law is a hilarious take on why things go wrong; compiled by the American writer Arthur Bloch. There was an explosion of these books years ago, often with Murphy in the title, not to mention Paul Dickson's The Official Rules. In these even more. I got this book because I have young teenage children that need to be a little more versed in things. Growing up Murphy's law was a staple around our house.

Her public argument with him comes back to haunt her when he is found murdered on Ellis Island; Molly becomes a prime suspect, along with a young man she befriended. The handsome young policeman investigating the case, Daniel Sullivan, appears to believe Molly's protestations of innocence, but Molly decides her she'd better investigate on her own behalf and that of her friend.
Wending her way through a vivid, Tammany Hall-era New York, Molly struggles to prove her innocence, aided by one coincidence after another. Bowen's solid reputation will generate strong sales for this series debut, though Constable Evans fans should beware that the gentle humor of those novels is lacking here.

When life goes well, little is made of it. After all, we expect that things should work out in our favor.
But when things go badly, we look for reasons. Think about walking. How many times have you reached a destination and thought, "Wow, I walk really well"?
But when you trip over a curb and skin your knee, it's a pretty good bet you'll wonder why this had to happen to you. Murphy's Law taps into our tendency to dwell on the negative and overlook the positive.
It seems to poke fun at us for being such hotheads, and it uses the rules of probability -- the mathematical likeliness that something will occur -- to support itself.
