Praise for Anne Perry’s William Monk novels
“Dark Assassin is brilliant . . . That rare blend of novel that’s a page-turning thriller yet literary–and, best of all, one that gives us lucky readers the chance to enjoy another adventure by our favorite Victorian police superintendent, William Monk. Dark Assassin continues Anne Perry’s peerless tradition of blending compelling plotting with superbly realized human emotion and exquisite period detail.”
–Jeffery Deaver, author of The Bone Collector
The Shifting Tide
“An engrossing story that leaves the reader waiting for Monk’s next adventure . . . The mysterious and dangerous waterfront world of London’s ‘longest street,’ the Thames, comes to life.”
–South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Death of a Stranger
“[A] tantalizing puzzle . . . At last, in Death of a Stranger, the secrets of Monk’s past are dramatically revealed and the mystery of his identity conclusively resolved.”
–The New York Times Book Review
Funeral in Blue
“No one writes more elegantly than Perry, nor better conjures up the rich and colorful tapestry of London in the Victorian era. But for all its arcane setting and stylistic eloquence, Funeral in Blue is an old-style private eye novel–and an extremely good one.”
–Cleveland Plain Dealer
