But he wonders: Why didn't Louvain report the ivory theft directly to the River Police? Why did he warn Monk not to investigate the murder of one of the Maude Idris crew? Even more mysterious, why has Louvain brought to Hester's clinic a desperately ill woman who, he claims, is the discarded mistress of an old friend? Neither Hester nor Monk anticipates the nightmare answers to these questions...nor the trap that soon so fatefully ensnares them.

The Shifting Tide
This is one of my favorite Anne Perry novels. She had me from the first word to the last. I really liked the characters. There was humor and wit, sadness, kindness, and all brought together in a wonderful way.

This book focuses on 2 connected stories that flow as one. The first 1/2 is compelling and introduces some truly quirky characters -- some of whom are absolutely charming, and others who are unspeakably bad. The second 1/2 reached out and grabbed me so I had to finish in one sitting. Perry has the gift of painting pictures with words, she provides historical color and texture such that you feel that you are physically in the midst of late 1800's London with all its excesses and squalor.
It is also important to mention that this narrator is growing on me. Altho, initially, I missed Davina Porter (who read the first 5 books in this series), I've now really embraced David Colacci and appreciate his work. From my perspective, criticisms of his narration are not warranted.
