    " I read many of the Monk books in my pre-foodreads days, and found them to be quite compelling. Whether it was the amnesia Monk had, and his trying to solve a mystery plus solve his own mystery, or Hester's fierce determination to maintain her nursing skills, worth, and strength of character, or some of all of the above, I don't know, but I enjoyed the series. That I fell off later in the game is probably only because my life circumstances made it more complicated to keep up with when new books came out. I'll probably get back to the series again some day, or listen on audio book. "

    " Great portrait of the era, good introduction to the series. Ends a bit abruptly. "

    " This was a bit slower after Defend and Betray, but I found it engrossing nonetheless. Although some might find the beginning to be inconsequential once 50-60 pages in, despite a tenuous connection later in the novel, I felt it to be a powerful display of the troubles and choices (or lack thereof) facing women in Victorian times... moral of the story: don't dismiss it out of hand. I have to admit I did not see the identity of the culprit coming. Finally, I love how vividly Prudence Barrymore comes to life, even though we never actually see her alive in the novel. "
