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!!

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.

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.

Don't read this book on a dark & stormy night.
It is seriously gothic in nature, set in a wealthy English home but that doesn't stop the creaking floorboards, drapes killing all sunlight & an inconvenient murder perhaps by a family member. Anne Perry is chillingly masterful with the inner mind of the English murderer.
