She's done it again. Interwoven several story lines and even some breathtaking action while contrasting the mores and beliefs of Victorian England. I truely admire her work.

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.
