Revenge in a Cold River (William Monk Mystery, Book 22)

The queen of the Victorian mystery, New York Times bestseller Anne Perry returns with the 22nd novel in the William Monk series REVENGE IN A COLD RIVER. An adversary Monk cannot remember threatens everything he holds dear – will he survive what is to come?

London, 1869: The body of a middle-aged man is found tangled in a mass of rope and wooden wreckage near the dockside of the River Thames.

Commander William Monk of the River Police is called when initial investigations reveal the man was shot in the back. When he learns that the man was a master forger who had just escaped prison, Monk’s interest is immediately piqued. But as his investigations lead him ever deeper into the murky world of smuggling and forgery, Monk is forced to confront his own forgotten past.

The unsolicited interference of an old foe takes precedence as it becomes clear to Monk that a bitter enemy is back for revenge and has him in his sights. With his life and career in imminent danger, can Monk navigate his way to the truth before it is too late?

Commander William Monk – A man with no past has only his conscience and instinct to guide him.

Reviews

The investigation concludes in a hold-your-breath trial... A brilliant Victorian police procedural in which well-realized characters and settings are fascinating in themselves
Booklist
There is a freshness about [Perry's] writing which makes it truly exceptional and I was gripped until the final page. Death on Blackheath was one of the best books I've read this year and I cannot recommend it highly enough
Eurocrime
Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries are marvels of plot construction... truly remarkable
New York Times
Much more than a whodunit, [A Sunless Sea], possibly the author's best yet, is especially effective at providing a nuanced look at a vital controversy of the day
Publisher's Weekly
The storytelling is dazzling, as it always is in a Perry novel
New York Times
