THE 24th WILLIAM MONK NOVEL, following An Echo of Murder.
FOLLOWING THE LAUNCH OF THE NEW DANIEL PITT SERIES IN APRIL 2018, there should be renewed interest in Anne Perry. This will be the first Monk novel released after Twenty-One Days, the first Daniel Pitt novel.
ADVENTURE ON THE MURKY WATERS OF THE BUSIEST PORT IN THE WORLD: Much of the novel’s action takes place on London’s Thames River, with boat chases and eerie escapades in crumbling waterside buildings.
14 MILLION COPIES OF ANNE PERRY’S BOOKS IN PRINT, including 6 million copies in the William Monk series.
PRAISE for Perry’s previous William Monk novels: “The storytelling is dazzling, as it always is in a Perry novel…. Like the great Dickens novel Our Mutual Friend, the Monk series has a deep, almost primal bond with London’s river, which disgorges all sorts of objects, including human bodies, with each tide…. Uncommonly atmospheric.” (The New York Times Book Review); “Masterful storytelling.” (The Star Ledger); “If Perry isn’t the Queen of British Mysteries (and P.D. James may still hold that title), then she’s certainly the Grand Duchess.” (New Jersey Daily Record)
“Riveting…one of the series’ more powerful recent entries.”—Publishers Weekly
“Perry makes cunning work of the plot, which raises issues of trust and loyalty while driving home a grim message about the vulnerability of women who entrust their fortunes to unscrupulous men.”—The New York Times Book Review
“One of the most successful of prolific Perry’s recent Victorian melodramas. The opening chapters are appropriately portentous, the mystification is authentic, and if the final surprise isn’t exactly a shock, it’s so well-prepared that even readers who don’t gasp will nod in satisfaction.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Another deftly crafted gem of a suspense thriller by a master of the mystery genre… a ‘must read.’ ”—Midwest Book Review
“Superb…[a] brilliant piece of historical fiction…no one writes Victorian-era stories quite like Perry.”—BookReporter
