    Death might be commonplace in 1857 at the Royal Free Hospital in London's Gray's Inn Road, but murder certainly isn't. When the body of Prudence Barrymore, a gently bred, dedicated and passionate nurse, is discovered stuffed into a laundry chute, no-one - high born or low - can be beyond suspicion.

    Anne Perry's Inspector William Monk: in search of justice, he will not stop until he has found the truth...Oliver Rathbone, William Monk's close friend, has presided brilliantly over his first cases as a judge. But the next will bring a far greater challenge. Abel Taft, a charismatic minister adored by his congregation, stands accused of terrible corruption and fraud which has ruined the lives of those he's betrayed.In court, each victim affirms Taft's guilt, but when the defence's star witness tears their stories apart, the case seems lost.

    Wonderful Story but......

    Wonderful Story but so spoiled by the narrator.
    The narrator is speaking far too fast which really spoiled the book for me.

    The new historical thriller featuring William Monk from The New York Times best-selling author. London, 1856: A deadly act of terror on the Thames leads William Monk into a treacherous world where the powerful seek to buy justice, and no one is safe. It is a time of progress, with the Empire's interests expanding and the Suez Canal nearing completion. Many people stand to gain - and to lose - as the world rapidly changes.

    Interesting moral dilemmas, not enough twists

    Having had Anne Perry's Inpector Monk before I really warmed to the characters and like the way she gives a feeling of life in Victorian London.
