    " Oh my goodness, that was so good!! Hard to read towards the end because of its subject matter. But a wonderfully written story. Bravo! "

    " I enjoy all of Anne Perry's Victorian mystery novels. This one featured Monk as the investigator. After reading several of these, one gets to know the main characters, and they do reappear here. I was in the dark as to how this was going to come out; it seemed like there was no way the prisoner could be saved, but it resolved comfortably at the end. "

    " Part detective novel, part courtroom drama, this book is not badly written. However, I resent its extreme sensationalism. Murder not bad enough? Throw in some sexual abuse. Still not bad enough? Make it incest. Still want more? How about a child sodomy ring? It makes me angry that a book should require this much suffering to make a simple whodunnit story. I've read about 5 or 8 of the 40 or so books Anne Perry has written, and I've mostly enjoyed them for their Victorian color and suspense. But this one really pissed me off. Boo! Rotten tomatoes! "

    " In the third of the William Monk Victorian detective series I was very pleased to see the character of Hester Latterly developed with careful expertise. Hester figures so strongly in later novels that I was delighted to see how the author introduced her character in this book with words both eloquent and moving. The conditions of Victorian England, the repression of superbly talented women such as Hester, and her determination to be herself in spite of society's prejudiced, ill-informed attitudes of women, make Defend and Betray one of the best Perry novels I have read thus far. I never listened to this one on audio tape, as I did many others of both the Monk and Pitt series a decade past. It was a refreshing treat to read the text. Perry's talents were wonderfully expressed in this work, which can stand alone as a novel, but is yet a wonderful transition piece in the story of William Pitt and Hester Latterly. "
