The Sins of the Wolf
- Jean "I am an avid eclectic reader."
Anne Perry is good but repetitive
I have listened to five Monk novels, and now have had my fill of Anne Perry's verging on shrill condemnation of the British class system and its reactionary attitudes toward women. The Sins of the Wolf ends up ensnaring the charming Hester Latterly in the criminal justice system--and I was disappointed to suffer through what seemed like hours of Hester's terror at her plight.
The plot itself was very interesting, the social commentary repetitive and tedious.
There is a book six in the series, which picks up the thread of Latterly and Monk's gradual romance, but Audible does not stock it.
It will be awhile before I do another Anne Perry. On the other hand, Davina Porter is great so I will keep an eye out for her.
