Summary
  • "Anne Perry, that incomparable novelist of life in Victorian England, has once again surpassed herself, with this twenty-first installment of her New York Times bestselling William Monk series. In Corridors of the Night, nurse Hester Monk and her husband, William, commander of the Thames River Police, do desperate battle with two obsessed scientists who in the name of healing have turned to homicide. The monomaniacal Rand brothers--Magnus, a cunning doctor, and Hamilton, a genius chemist--are utterly ruthless in their pursuit of a cure for the fatal "white-blood disease." In London's Royal Naval Hospital annex, Hester is tending one of the brothers' dying patients--wealthy Bryson Radnor--when she stumbles upon three weak, terrified young children, and learns to her horror that they've been secretly purchased and imprisoned by the Rands for experimental purposes. But the Rand brothers are too close to a miracle cure to allow their experiments to be exposed. Before Hester can reveal the truth, she too becomes a prisoner. As Monk and his faithful friends--distinguished lawyer Oliver Rathbone and reformed brothel keeper Squeaky Robinson among them--scour London's grimy streets and the beautiful English countryside searching for her, Hester's time, as well as the children's, is quickly draining away. Taut with intrigue and laced with white-knuckled terror, Corridors of the Night is Anne Perry at her magnificent, unforgettable best. Praise for Anne Perry and Her William Monk novels Blood on the Water "One of Ms. Perry's most engrossing books. gallops to a dramatic conclusion."--The Washington Times Blind Justice "[Perry's] courtroom scenes have the realism of Scott Turow."--Huntington News A Sunless Sea "Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries are marvels."--The New York Times Book Review Acceptable Loss "Masterful storytelling and moving dialogue."--The Star-Ledger Execution Dock "[An] engrossing page-turner. There's no one better at using words to paint a scene and then fill it with sounds and smells than Anne Perry."--The Boston Globe"--
  • "When William Monk's wife, Hester, is kidnapped from the hospital where she volunteers, Monk is desperate to rescue her. But when his investigation leads him to the remote home of the wealthy and enigmatic Bryson Radnor--and to several bodies buried on his grounds--Monk realizes there is far more to Hester's kidnapping than meets the eye. What did Hester learn that made her a danger to Radnor? What are the two doctors Hester was working with at the hospital hiding? And most pressing of all--will Monk be able to find his beloved wife before it's too late?"--
