With Hester arrested for murder, the stakes are high…

To save Hester Latterly from the noose, William Monk must solve the case with greater urgency than ever before in Anne Perry’s unputdownable mystery Sins of the Wolf. Perfect for fans of C. J. Sansom and Ann Granger.

‘A mesmerizing courtroom drama [and] a plot that’s filled with surprising twists and unexpected suspense’ – Booklist

When nurse Hester Latterly accompanies the elderly Mrs Mary Farraline on a short trip to London, her only medical duty is to ensure her charming patient takes her heart medicine. But Mrs Farraline dies during the night. When her missing brooch ‘turns up’ in Hester’s possession she is arrested for theft, until a post-mortem reveals a lethal dose of medicine in Mrs Farraline’s body, and the charge becomes murder. Inspector William Monk must find a killer amongst the aloof Farraline clan, and in a Scottish courtroom the family’s secrets will be exposed – or buried for ever.
