My thanks to Overdrive and Meridian Library for my copy. Anne Perry did not disappoint in the 23rd book on the William Monk series, it as good as all her books. The book covers family secrets, the horror of war, mob violence and deceit of an individual.
Monk’s current case is the vicious death of Hungarian living in London. Scuff is learning to be a doctor and he meets an army surgeon, Fritz who is living in the area.  Fritz is an old friend of Hester. She believed that he died in the war. She had found a body as we’re saving the living. This surgeon has blackouts with memories of the Crimean battlefields. As more similar deaths occur in the Hungarian community tensions escalate as Monk does not make an arrest. Fritz is found on the streets covered in blood and the Hungarians are convinced he is the killer. Mob violence takes over and Monk is forced to arrest Fritz for the murder. Hester is determined to save him from the gallows. Will she succeed? I HIGHLY recommend this book and series.

    One of my favourite authors. I’ll have to pick this one up.

    • I got mine from the Library. I stopped reading the Pitt’sbook because I don’t like her personal feeling showing through. This book had some of it but it wasn’t bad.

    I have not read any of this series.This sounds like a book you would have trouble putting down.

    • I don’t how much you know about Anne Perry. I think I have been reading her since the 1980’s. Inspector Monk was a Scotland’s Yard first in a carriage accident and lost all his memory. Hester is a war nurse with high society enter who established a hospital for women who no other source of medical aide. They are now married. She has another Charlotte Pitt series.
