Description

Genvieve Stonefield's husband Angus is missing when she seeks William Monk's help to find him. She is convinced that he has been murdered by his twin brother Caleb, a shadowy figure who lives in the slums bordering the Thames and has always hated his respectable businessman brother. Although worried about Hester Latterly's health as she nurses victims of a typhoid outbreak in Limehouse, and threatened by a personal scandal, Monk is determined to bring one of the most bizarre cases he has ever encountered to its conclusion.show more

Review quote

"A triumph . . . a model of the richness and subtleties of relationships, characters, and story construction."--"Chicago Sun-Times" "Masterful . . . darkly chilling . . . [Anne] Perry eloquently delivers to her readers the flavor of Victorian England. . . . Readers will be kept entertained--and guessing--right up to the final pages."--"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel""Just when you think you have it figured out, think again! No one can capture and bring to life the drama, excitement, and feel of Victorian England like Perry."--"Mostly Murder" "Few mystery writers this side of Arthur Conan Doyle can evoke Victorian London with such relish for detail and mood."--"San Francisco Chronicle" "Perry spins a clever tale, filled with as many twists and turns as the labyrinthine world and city of which she writes."--"Mobile Register"show more
