Don't read this book unless you have read the previous Monk novel, 'Face of a Stranger'. It's a really good look into the European society of the 1800's. And Perry is an excellent writer!!

In the two series that Anne Perry authored, William Monk and Thomas Pitt, she builds the characters and their lives as she delves into their latest mystery which enhances her stories with an added dimension. If you wish to get the most out of her series, here are the Monk books in the order in which they were written: 1990-Face of a Stranger, 1992-A Dangerous Morning, 1994-A Sudden Fearful Death, 1995-The Sins of the Wolf, 1996-Cain His Brother, 1997-Weighed in the Balance, 1998 The Silent Cry, 1998-A Breach of Promise, 2000-The Twisted Root, 2000-Slaves of Obsession, 2001-Funeral in Blue, 2002-Defend & Betray, 2003-Shifting Tide. For historical (Victorian Age) fiction mystery lovers, she is the greatest for a delightful pageturner.

Anne Perry at her best. had some real twists to the plot, have to admit the ending took me by surprise. As usual her research into the time period her stories take place in make you feel you are back in time with the characters in the book. needless to say I am a great fan of hers. I f you want more than just a real good mystery, I really recommend this.

Murder in an aristocratic London household pits Inspector William Monk against the Victorian sense of propriety, a bootlicking superior officer and a family's fierce desire to protect its reputation.

No breath of scandal has ever touched the aristocratic Moidore family - until Sir Basil's beautiful widowed daughter is stabbed to death in her own bed, a shocking, incomprehensible tragedy.
Inspector William Monk is ordered to investigate in a manner that will give the least possible pain to the influential family. But Monk, brilliant and ambitious, is handicapped by lingering traces of amnesia and by the craven ineptitude of his supervisor, who would like nothing better than to see Monk fail. (from back cover)
