DARK TIDE RISING  by Anne Perry 


An extremely good novel featuring Commander William Monk and his men. At times the writing was slow as the men’s thoughts were repeated over again. Monk is aiding a husband whose wife has been kidnap and he is willing to pay the ramson for her safe return. He hired Monk to oversee the exchange. He selects his men carefully and the payout is kept secret. The woman was killed at the scene and the ransom money is missing. The men are betrayed and one of them did the betrayal. Monk and his second in command work to determine who was responsible. This story has many twists and turns that will keep you occupied. The ending is a surprise. I Highly recommend this book and series.

    I see you liked it but found it slow also. Perhaps your familiarity with the characters made it easier to tolerate the slowness and enjoy the book.
