review 1: This book was twice as long as it could have been and by the time I finished I found it tedious. The characters keep agonizing over unanswered questions which are asked over and over again. I enjoyed the first few books of the Monk series by Anne Perry; however I feel that they t...

review 1: I continue to enjoy Anne Perry's books. This is one of the latest in the Monk series and involves the trade of opium in 1860s England. I really enjoyed the historical aspects of the book and the sociological reflections as well. Perry effectively wove the mystery in with the c...

review 1: What the heck is this? Can you guess i wasn't impressed? I get it, it's a novelette and the "mystery" needs to be wrapped up in a hundred odd pages but sheesh, I feel like there was hardly any effort put into this at all. It was transparent and pretty obvious early on what was go...

review 1: This is the first Ann Perry book I have read. I like Agatha Christie mysteries because she gives you the information you need to solve the mystery. Very few writers can do this without giving away the ending. Ann Perry didn't give the information to solve this until the last few ...

review 1: I was really excited to see that Anne Perry had written a novel set in Constantinople c. 1278-80. I enjoyed learning about the history of this city and getting a different perspective on the crusades. (Just like today, one issue is what horror is inflicted on innocent people in...

review 1: I enjoyed this book a lot. I like Anne Perry's sleuths because they are so moral, but not stodgy. Thomas and Charlotte Pitt have a strong healthy marriage and are good parents. They deal with the horrible things with honor and integrity. Man, it's so rare these days to read a boo...
