Summary
  • "Master of mystery and historical intrigue Anne Perry once again transports readers to the banks of the Thames in Victorian London for her thrilling new William Monk novel. In Revenge in a Cold River, Monk faces his darkest hour ever as he spars with a quarry hell-bent on vengeance. When Commander Monk of the Thames River Police is called to investigate the drowning of an escaped prisoner, he's forced to contend with customs officer McNab, who clearly bears a bitter grudge against him. But the reason is a mystery in itself. Monk's memory loss--a secret he guards closely--leaves him vulnerable to repercussions from his missing past, especially his exploits overseas in the tumultuous Gold Rush days of San Francisco. And now McNab, as icy and unfathomable as the steel-gray Thames itself, appears intent on using whatever damning facts he can find to his advantage to ruin Monk's future as an officer of the law. As Monk explores the possibility of a conspiracy, McNab's game of cat and mouse escalates, with veiled threats and cryptic insinuations. Snared in an unforeseen trap, a desperate Monk must turn to his wife, Hester, and friend and attorney Oliver Rathbone for help, as his life literally hangs in the balance. With razor-edged suspense and shocking twists and turns, Revenge in a Cold River is Anne Perry at her most intense--and most satisfying. Praise for Anne Perry and her William Monk novels Corridors of the Night "[A] suspenseful, twisting narrative."--Historical Novels Review 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"--
  • "Commander William Monk has learned to live with the fact that he cannot remember the events of his life prior to a horrific carriage accident years ago. But when a ghost from his past, a man he has no recollection of, attempts to frame him for a series of murders, he must rely on the help of his wife Hester and his close friend Oliver Rathbone in order to free himself--from both the charges, and the demons that have haunted him since the accident"--
