William Monk knows London’s streets like the back of his hand; after all, they are where he earns his living. But the river Thames and its teeming docks - where towering schooners and clipper ships unload their fabulous cargoes and wharf rats and night plunderers ply their trades - is unknown territory. Only dire need persuades him to accept an assignment from shipping magnate Clement Louvain to investigate the theft of a cargo of African ivory from Louvain’s recently docked schooner, the Maude Idris. Monk is desperate for work, not only to feed himself and his wife, Hester, but to keep open the doors of her clinic, a last resort for sick and starving street women. But he wonders: Why didn’t Louvain report the ivory theft directly to the River Police? Why did he warn Monk not to investigate the murder of one of the Maude Idris crew? Even more mysterious, why has Louvain brought to Hester’s clinic a desperately ill woman who, he claims, is the discarded mistress of an old friend? Neither Hester nor Monk anticipates the nightmare answers to these questions . . . nor the trap that soon so fatefully ensnares them. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " An odd book of two halves - I thought it was a detective novel but it also turns into a medical mystery, weaving William Monk's and his wife's tales into one book. Very good descriptions and suspense, but I would not recommend it unless you are already an Anne Perry fan. I think this is the first one I've read of the William Monk, so maybe that has had something to do with my enjoyment. "

    " Perry continues to come up with compelling storylines for William & Hester to work through. The mysteries and historical aspect are engaging. The relationship of William & Hester, however, engages the heart. And part of this story is heart rending. "
