Excellent a definite thriller for Anne Perry's Monk fans.
A very well-written mystery, this was also somewhat painful to me in its depiction of the Civil War. An excellent book overall.
Excellant Victorian murder/mystery.
Novel set in 1861 during the Civil War. A London arms dealer is becoming a very wealthy man. Americans are dealing to purchase his arms, when one is murdered & entire catch of arms disappear. The person believed to be involved is tracked to America, and

I can not say enough about Anne Perry and the William Monk books! If you love a good mystery with a little history thrown in, then you will LOVE these books!
An incredible Civil War era murder mystery, wonderfully rich and frightening story!

For historical (Victorian Age) fiction mystery lovers, she is the greatest for a delightful pageturner.
