When Kate Exeter is kidnapped on the shore of the Thames, Commander William Monk is enlisted by her desperate husband to save her.

Welcome change of style

I always enjoyed the William Monk books, but this one is a cut above the others. Less whimsical "period" background information, a much leaner writing style and a great plot...couldn't stop listening because I just had to find out the ending!
