William Monk faces his most bizarre case to date…

In the foggy streets of Victorian London, Investigator Monk continues to solve the city’s crimes and murders, with Cain His Brother being the sixth instalment of Anne Perry’s mystery series featuring the popular detective. Perfect for fans of C. J. Sansom and Sarah Perry.

‘Just when you think you have it figured out, think again! No one can capture and bring to life the drama, excitement, and feel of Victorian England like Perry’ – Mostly Murder

Genvieve Stonefield’s husband Angus is missing when she seeks William Monk’s help to find him. She is convinced that he has been murdered by his twin brother Caleb, a shadowy figure who lives in the slums bordering the Thames and has always hated his respectable businessman brother. Although worried about Hester Latterly’s health as she nurses victims of a typhoid outbreak in Limehouse, and threatened by a personal scandal, Monk is determined to bring one of the most bizarre cases he has ever encountered to its conclusion.

What readers are saying about Cain His Brother:

‘This is the best one in the Monk series… this novel has a most baffling conclusion and left me reeling in surprise

Lots of twists to the tale, it’ll have you hooked

Five stars
