Product Details


“[Anne] Perry fashions a rich, if blood-spattered narrative from this chapter of history. As the murders [of Hungarians] continue, Monk and his clever wife, Hester . . . struggle to fathom the new climate of hatred. ‘I think it’s fear,’ Hester says. ‘It’s fear of ideas, things that aren’t the way you’re used to. Everyone you don’t understand because their language is different, their food, but above all their religion.’ How times haven’t changed.”The New York Times Book Review

“Skillful . . . [Anne] Perry smoothly intertwines themes—war’s lingering cost, tension around immigration and otherness—that challenge in both her period and our own. Her gritty depictions of Victorian medicine at home and on the battlefield ground the story in wrenching realism.”Publishers Weekly 

“An atmospheric whodunit, which awakens London to tumultuous, compelling life . . . This latest installment in the William Monk series resounds with the great Victorian classics, Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dickens’s Edwin Drood, and Stoker’s Dracula.”Historical Novels Review
