The Face of a Stranger.

The Face of a Stranger. A Dangerous Mourning.

The Shifting Tide: A William Monk Novel. Anne Perry is the bestselling author of two acclaimed series set in Victorian England: the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels, including Buckingham Palace Gardens and Long Spoon Lane, and the William Monk novels, including Execution Dock and Dark Assassin. She is also the author of a series of five World War I novels, as well as seven holiday novels, most recently A Christmas Odyssey, and a historical novel, The Sheen on the Silk, set in the Ottoman Empire.

This series by Anne Perry never fails, and this one . Typical Anne Perry story of her ex-policemen turned private detective, William Monk. As always Perry seems to have a knack of showing the seedier side of Victorian London.

This series by Anne Perry never fails, and this one involving a drastic problem at Hester's clinic for London's prostitutes, and a really convoluted case of piracy for Monk to solve, certainly wasn't light, but it did not require the mental energy I didn't have to give during holiday week. This is a great series, and I love to keep up with the adventures of this compassionate, intelligent, and gentle couple. Monk must discover who stole a shipment of ivory from shipping magnate Clement Louvain.

William Monk knows London’s streets like the back of his hand. But the river Thames and its teeming docks-where wharf rats and night plunderers ply their trades-is unknown territory. Only Monk’s dire need for work persuades him to accept an assignment from shipping magnate Clement Louvain, to investigate the theft of a cargo of African ivory from Louvain’s recently docked schooner, the Maude Idris.

The Shifting Tide book. I have just read all 22 of Anne Perry's William Monk series non-stop over the past 5 months and loved every minute of them. I have never in my life before read an entire series back to back and even when I've previously read a trilogy I've had to stop for a breather part-way through. They are so well written and introduce all sorts of historical events and social issues of the time (1850s & 60s).

William Monk knows London’s streets like the back of his hand; after all, they are where he earns his living. But the river Thames and its teeming docks―where towering schooners and clipper ships unload their fabulous cargoes and wharf rats and night plunderers ply their trades―is unknown territory.


Only dire need persuades him to accept an assignment from shipping magnate Clement Louvain to investigate the theft of a cargo of African ivory from Louvain’s recently docked schooner, the Maude Idris. Monk is desperate for work, not only to feed himself and his wife, Hester, but to keep open the doors of her clinic, a last resort for sick and starving street women.


But he wonders: Why didn’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 more 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 questions...nor the trap that soon so fatefully ensnares them.

Wow, Anne Perry hit a homerun with this book. While I'm glad Callandra has found happiness with Kristian Beck, I'll miss her character immensely. And I'm so happy for Rathbone and Margaret. This book was powerful, packed an emotional wallop and raced along.

A couple of small complaints. Why aren't Hester or Monk more suspicious when Louvain turns up at the clinic with Ruth? I know I would be. Also, a noticeable gaffe early on in Monk's dealings at the riverfront. He's dressed like a gentleman fallen on hard times and is supposedly questioning others like himself. Two paragraphs later, however, when the conversation starts, these same men are not talking like gentlemen, but with the dialect of the working class. Just a quick glance upward on the page should have alerted Perry to her error. A careless oversight by both her and her editor. Neither is serious enough to bring the rating down or ruin an excellent story.

I came late to the William Monk novels, but have really enjoyed them, much more than the Thomas & Charlotte Pitt books. Coming so late to the series, I purchased all the previous WM novels up to this one and read them all in a month's time. Perry does a wonderful job of writing good historical mysteries with interesting, somewhat flawed characters. Monk is one of the best detective characters invented in the last twenty years. These are keepers!

This was an excellent book in the series. I love the way Anne Perry develops characters. With a lot of series, I find that the author sometimes seams to forget what was previously written, and writes something that clashes with what had already bee established. But not this series, or, the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, also by Anne Perry.

I have recently discovered Anne Perry's books and I'm very glad. The William Monk series is terrific. I enjoy time period it is set in. My niece gave me the first one and I was hooked. All the characters are so real and believable. Great plot and dialogue. I will read more of this series. Thank you Anne Perry.

Couldn’t put it down. Starts as 2 stories, with Monk investigating a theft of ivory from a ship waiting to dock, and Hester running her charity house for injured or ill prostitutes. Both stories merge, as both Monk and Hester battle plague, murder and a ruthless businessman. Great characters that will stay with you!

This is the first Anne Perry book I have read in a long time. Reading it on my Kindle made all the difference. I love a mystery and I love novels with British settings. The river played a big part in the book but the title, The Shifting Tide, also gives meaning to many of the "river rat" characters and their shifty methods. William Monk is a patient and thorough detective with skills of deduction. He can figure out what the clues are with very little evidence. He has a gentle side as well when he gets help from a young child who frequents the river. And, he is moral when he worries about implicating an innocent man for murder. His wife Hester, also plays a part in the book as a selfless heroine, as usual. I'm sure I will continue to read more of Anne Perry's novels now that I am hooked on her mysteries.

As with all of Anne Perry's books, The Shifting Tide, has such a beautifully told story that I lost track of time as I read it. The historically accurate details that she includes make the characters come alive and for a moment, I was taken back into 19th century London. I have enjoyed reading all of her books, but I think this book is one of the best. The story drew me in and held on until the last page. It can be enjoyed without reading the whole series, but once you're done, I bet you'll want to read more of William Monk, Hester, and the rest of the characters.
I love Monk Like his wife too. Preferred Monk working alone and liked the bit of almost sexual tension. Tho I don't usually read romantic novels even mysteries. The last chapters were overkill, that's why I didn't give it a 5.
