ebook ß The Shifting Tide ¶ Anne Perry

The Shifting TideIdn’t Louvain report the ivory theft directly to the River Police? Why did he warn Monk not to investigate the murder of one of the Maude Idris crew? Even mysterious why has Louvain brought to Hester’s clinic a desperately ill woman who he claims is the discarded mistress of an old friend? Neither Hester nor Monk anticipates the nightmare answers to these uestions nor the trap that soon so fatefully ensnares themIn this magnificent novel Anne Perry holds the reader spellbound as Monk and Hester struggle to save themselves and their world from a catastrophe whose dimensions they can scarcely measure From the Hardcover edition Either this was better than the last few Monk novels or I just enjoyed it because I allowed some extra time to pass after reading the last one These books have many repetitive elements and I think it's best to allow some time between them for the heart to grow fonderMoney is tight so Monk accepts a job tracing merchandise stolen from a ship on the Thames He’s out of his element being unfamiliar with life on the river and at the docks Meanwhile Hester is struggling to manage her hospital for prostitutes and finding that London’s charitable rich are not eager to give money to help “fallen women”I like the main characters particularly the fierce almost desperate joy they have found in their relationship Otherwise most of the appeal is in the gritty Victorian setting This has the same faults as the other Monk books including unlikely coincidences and over the top melodrama but I look forward to the next one anyway
