Lyn Reviews Author Anne Perry’s Dark Assassin

Dark Assassin (William Monk, #15)Dark Assassin by Anne Perry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have become an ardent Anne Perry fan. I love to listen to her Victorian England mysteries on audio with my husband. Be warned however that her stories are intense.

This is one of Ms. Perry’s William Monk stories. In this story Monk has given up private detecting since now he has a wife Hester to support. He is working on the Thames River police. I hadn’t thought about London needing officers on boats to control river crime, but it is so.

As usual this is not merely a complicated mystery but is also the love story of William and Hester. And I always enjoy the many secondary characters like Scuff the street urchin and Squeaky the bookeeper at the hospital Hester volunteers at.

This is a story that highlights that things are rarely what they seem. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommended to anyone who loves a good mystery, suspense and a continuing love story.

    I usually get her books from the library and listen to them with my husband. If your library doesn’t have any, ask the librarian about them. 🙂
