    This book suffered a little from rereading there were clues in people's behavior on the night of the murder that were inexplicably not followed up for chapters despite multiple mentions There were a few leaps of logic and at least one plot point I would have suggested editing out I'm no expert on British law of the period but some of the courtroom rulings seemed a little capricious or unlikely to me Monk's retracing of his past seemed occa

    This book opens with a murder about which very little is known other than the victim's wife openly admits to having killed her husband No one seems to know why and her only excuse is openly dismissed by everyone The next 15

    In the third of the William Monk Victorian detective series I was very pleased to see the character of Hester Latterly developed with careful expertise Hester figures so strongly in later novels that I was delighted to see how the author introduced her character in this book with words both elouent and moving The conditions of Victorian England the repression of superbly talented women such as Hester and her determination to be

Nd's proud family With the trial only days away they inch toward the dark and appalling heart of the mystery The final act is a courtroom masterpiece through which we dare not breathe too deeply lest the precarious balance of a woman's life be los. This book opens with a murder about which very little is known other than the victim s wife openly admits to having killed her husband No one seems to know why and her only excuse is openly dismissed by everyone The next 150 pages or so repeats these minimal facts from various angles and viewpoints And really that s about itThe final 100 devolve into a standard courtroom drama although all of the surprises have already been revealed I lost count of how many aristocratic characters a stood in front of windows looking out and b were describe as having auiline noses As with her other Monk stories whole paragraphs seemed to have been copypasted into later sections with only minimal rewriting Unlike the first two Monk stories this one is really Hester s story than Monk s Perry throws in some occasional Monk scenes and a token bit of reclaimed memory but he s all but forgotten in this storyCut the book in half edit the rest tightly and decide who the main character truly is and this should have been a much better story
