Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

William Monk, private investigator, and his wife, Hester, nurse and feminist, are a fascinating couple operating in Victorian England. In the latest of this series, Monk reluctantly takes a case involving cargo theft and murder while Hester spends most of her time helping at a clinic for street women. A confirmed case of death from the plague brings the two plot lines dramatically together. David Colacci is a master at portraying the London lowlifes of alley and waterfront, as well as the more aristocratic characters such as Rathbone, Monk's lawyer friend. Thanks to excellent pacing and characterization, the listener is gradually drawn into this story until its explosive conclusion. J.B.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
