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.

I've enjoyed the few books I've read in this series. Historical mysteries, set in Victorian London. I like the fact that the "secondary" main character was one of Florence Nightingale's nurses in the Crimean War.

Cliff hanger of a trial, some things one might guess but it is spine tingling how the truth is uncovered.

Anne Perry's characters are rich and interesting as is her plot development. I enjoyed this book enough to begin ordering the rest of the Monk series as well as the Pitt series. I particularly enjoy her strong female characters (in both series) - how they negotiate the limitations of the era and push beyond them. Her Monk character is an interesting man, a strong but wounded soul seeking the truth. Highly recommended.
