As Hester ventures into violent streets to learn who is responsible for the brutal abuse of her patients, Monk embarks upon a journey into the English countryside, where the last rails are being laid for a new line. But the sight of the tracks stretching into the distance revives memories once stripped from his consciousness by amnesia - as a past almost impossible to bear returns, eerily paralleling a fresh tragedy that has already begun its inexorable unfolding.

Death of a Stranger
This is another great story from Anne Perry. This one has a lot to do with the building of the railway between London and Liverpool. I have read a number of the Monk series but unfortunately out of order so was fascinated about the story of how Hester got the house for her Hospital for poor women. The court room action was a bit different in this story as Monk and Hester had no idea what the barrister was up to during the trial. In past stories he depended on the information provided to him by Hester and Monk. Monk learned more about his past that showed him in a good light so he was relieved. Nice twists and turns in the story keeps on guessing. If you like historical/social issue type novels about London in the 1850s you will enjoy this series.
