Anne perry"s books are about the victorian age-how the people lived, the society and the workers. I Can imagine myself self being there by her descriptions and get to know all of the characters and why they are good or evil. Yet I am going to scream if I read once more about the Crimea war, Light Brigade, Hester's disgraced father, Monk's lost memory, fight against social injustice or Oliver's nearly-proposal. And not only it is dragged from one book to the next, it is repeated in the same book.

A book by Anne Perry is always an entertaining story and the 10th Books as not disappoint. Hester and Monk have just returned from their honeymoon. They are slowly adjusting to their life together. Hester is a volunteer at a hospital and Monk accept a job to locate Miriam Gardiner, a young woman who disappeared from luncheon party at party celebrating her engagement to the son of the house. Monk soon finds the coach in which she fled. The coachman nearby but strangles. Hester is working to change the practice at the hospital she is volunteering. Pain drugs are missing from the drug storage area. Hester befriends an elderly soldier who is receiving pain drugs from an unidentified source. I did get tired on several times how much we owed these men for saving their country. The twists and turns the story to bring the thread together will hold your interest until the shocking end. I highly recommend this book and series.

If you love a good mystery - if you love Victorian England - if you love a unique love story - then buy this book (and all her William Monk serie) for this book (and the series) contain all three (and more). Her writing is superb - evocative of another time and place - never sentimental yet certain scenes bring tears to your eyes - never flowery or gushy, but filled with detail. William Monk, the chief character in this series is not the most likable of men but under Perry's flawless writing he comes to be a man you respect and cheer on. He has a history which comes to light slowly and it is one I do not believe I've ever seen before in a lead character. I will not divulge what it is so as not to spoil the read. Hester, the lead female in Perry's Monk Series is unlike any character I've ever read about before - at least in Victorian times. She is strong and outspoken and having been a nurse in the Crimean is a force to be reckoned with. And Rathbone, a lawyer friend to both of them, set the tone for the era but as the books slide by, becomes less conservative and more loving in his ways. As a trio they are hard to beat. Much has been said about Perry's own personal history which I will not divulge here for it's of no concern to me, but I do feel that it is that very history which has made her not only able to see both sides of a crime - but it's also given her the ability to show compassion, ferocity, and the effects of crime on both the criminal and the victim. Top notch writing coupled with interesting unusual characters makes this book (and the series) a first-rate read! BUY THEM!

Really hate to say this but I can only give this one star because I just couldn't get into this book and had to just delete it from my kindle after a chapter or two. I really hate doing that, as I rarely give up on books but this time I did.

Anne Perry continues her saga of Monk, Hester, and Rathbone. The formula is the same: a hopeless case, an inpverished defendant, a close--held secret. Hester and Monk are a team now, but Oliver is their friend and, even though he feels left out, he respects their judgment and works for their cause. Again nurses are treated badly, and Hester seeks proper treatment. The case involvesw a nurse, her young ward, and a wealthy family. On the stand the great secret is revealed to the horrow of the audience. Another great story./

While similar to the other stories in the genre, this one also ended up with Rathbone defending in courtroom drama, but also explored the beginning of the Monk/Latterly marriage. Another "could not put it down" read.

William Monk Novels have become my latest reading addiction. Can't seem to put them dow. I finish one, a and am anxious to begin the next. This mystery seemed impossible for me too solve. Anne Perry is a genius!
This story was absolutely enjoyable. I had a Wow moment when I finished reading book.
