    3.5 stars Go Hester I didn t enjoy this one quite as much If it s possible to generalise about Anne Perry s writing, having only read 5 of her books, I would say they have a slow build and everything gets terribly exciting in the second half of the book However in this one, we don t get a proper denouement until the very end of the final chapter and for me, it was too long to wait It was a good story, but with several red herrings It was interesting to learn t...

    4.5 stars The best in this great series so far Loved the focus on Hester in this book She really is an amazing character admirable strength and independence especially during Victorian times, an era where women s rights were basically non existent Monk s gruffness throughout a good part of the story did get a bit ...

    I love historical fiction and I always enjoy a decent mystery, so Anne Perry is always a solid choice for some rainy day reading This is one of a series of books about a Victorian detective William Monk with complete identity amnesia He has had a terrible accident and he no longer knows his name, his job or his relatives acquaintances Throughout the series, he gradually rediscovers himself and who he was In this book, his friend well, in a manner of speaking Hester, a nurse who served in the Crimea, is accused of murdering her patient Monk then frantically tries to discover the real murderer before she is found guilty and executed.The quality of the writing is good definitely a cut above the average for the genre Perry s prose is solid and fits with the Victorian setting, without becoming overly flowery, and her attention to historical detail makes the book feel really authentic This authenticity also spills over into her characters, who are a good bit subtle than the kind of stereotypes that inhabit your average detective novel The mysteries are seamlessly interwoven with their lives and their reactions to the crimes they face are natural and well depicted Their relationships with each other are also well developed, with the protagonists, Hester and Mo...

    This is 5 in the Inspector Monk series, and the most impressive I ve read yet The plot is very complex and the storyline is tight throughout The Perry hallmarks are here murder, most foul, coupled with a fascinating comparison of the interaction between the upper class and the lower class in Victorian times.Hester takes a position as a traveling companion nurse for an old lady from Edinburgh who wants to take the train down to London to talk to her daughter, who is about to give birth and has some unknown concern about it All goes well until the train gets to London and Hester discovers that her patient is deceased, but things go worse a few hours later when she discovers that her bag contains an item of her patient s jewelry that she happens to know was not included on the trip Hester gets blamed for the death, which turns out to be murder Rathbone instantly aggress to defend her and sends Monk to Edinburgh to look for evidence Everyone in the seven member family is suspect, of course, as well as some of the servants, so he has to investigate very carefully The story then becomes complex when a legal decision is made that Hester must be tried in Edinburgh, since the poisoning presumably occurred in Scotland, and Rathbone can only serve as an adviser to her Scottish counsel.As usual, Perry managed to confuse me enough that I decided on just about every suspect except the...

    All I really need to say about this book is I finished it, went straight to the computer, and ordered books by Anne Perry Although I ve read other books by her in the past, this really is a humdinger interesting, complex characters, a really puzzling p...

    This book was given to me by a friend Sue upon the recommendation of another friend Alison I have some stress over this book, now, because I enjoyed this murder mystery by Anne Perry so much, I will have to find time to read all of the other books in the William Monk Mystery Series Set in Victorian Great Britain, Anne Perry does an excellent job of bringing us into another era and place and engaging us with intriguing characters The plot twists and turns At times a bit over the top in description, but such an enjoyable read For any who have not already read William Monk novels, I would not recommend this one as a starting point I wish I had read the first book, Death of a Stranger There are many references in the story to past cases and the personal issues William Monk, Hester Latterly, and Oliver Rathbone that were developed in earlier novels I think that my reading experience would have been even richer if I had read at least the first novel Agatha Ch...

    Still a good series This is another Victorian mystery in which the family is probably the likeliest to have killed the victim, but it does take a while and a few rabbit trails to close in on who it is I found the ending satisfactory, and I am hoping that the relationship between Monk and Hester has turned a corner of sorts not romance, but at least an end to hostilities.Apart from the writing, I found this book to be poorly edited Grammar mistakes, using the wrong name for someone, and not keeping the staging correct first they are standing, then sitting, then they sit down wait, weren t they already sitting A previous reader of my library book even marked a page or two ...

    This was nicely dramatic Hester is accused of murdering a patient, and Monk and Rathbone desperately try to find evidence that will clear her Much of the action takes place in Edinburgh.The author is still quite repetitious, although I m trying to be forgiving since I m reading these books close together, which amplifies the problem.The murder mystery itse...

    This book in the William Monk series was interesting to me because Hester is accused of the murder of her charge, and the setting is Edinburgh, one of my favorite cities However, the book gets mired down at the end with an overly c...
