His name, they tell him, is William Monk, and he is a London police detective. His memory vanished after a terrible accident, but intent on hiding his condition and starting a new life, Monk tackles mystery after mystery as a private investigator.

“Give her a good murder and a shameful social evil,” The New York Times Book Review once declared, “and Anne Perry can write a Victorian mystery that would make Dickens’s eyes pop.”
