As were the people in the court I could not have been more stunned. The entire tale from the old soldier to the end was spell binding. What a great audio book as Anne Perry always delivers
Another stellar, twisty plot crafted by Anne Perry. I love how her characters protect their secrets so fiercely (as people do) that it I’m left bewildered to understand what is actually happening, as confused as detective Monk and the amazing Hester, now (finally) his bride in 1860. For this story, I guessed correctly the underlying “twisted root”about halfway through the novel, because I now know Perry’s uncanny ability to create heartbreakingly impossible life/relationship problems, but it didn’t matter that I had the inkling ahead of time. The full details and how the evidence comes out is much of the fun. Beautifully narrated; another winner in the Monk series.
Very good book v
Anne perry knows mystery. I really enjoy her.
