I've read all the Pitt and Monk novels from the get-go, but my heart has always been a bigger fan of the Monk series. With that said, this is a solid entry but just okay in my book. Oliver Rathbone is one of my favorite characters in the series, and Blind Justice picks up after his early cases as a judge. After successfully maneuvering a fraud trial, he finds old ghosts continue to haunt in the form of the photographics he inhertied from his late father-in-law Arthur Ballinger. Whether to destroy the photos or use them in some form in the cause of justice plagues his mind as much as the memories of his dying marriage to Margaret Ballinger. For one thing, I'm weary of the story arc that's played out over the past three to four books and am ready for the characters to move on to new and different cases. What I do like about this book is that we have the opportunity to see inside Rathbone's thoughts more than previous books. I love how Perry perfectly captures the mental wanderings we all have when we're trying to figure out a problem or are distracted and also how Rathbone comes to a greater realization of what it's like to be on the opposite side of a courtroom (and the justice system). It's also the first time we get to hear Scuff's point of view through his thoughts. We can never go back to the days of Defend and Betray or A Dangerous Mourning, but the agonizing repetition of lines like "What are we going to do about it?", and Hester Monk's blind mercy (which sometimes isn't realistic) makes me nostalgic for the rougher, younger days of Monk wading through running gutters or dashing up stairs to interrogate suspects and witnesses. I kind of miss the stories in which a missing brooch had some significance. I'd like to see the characters get out of London again - maybe Monk could visit his sister in Northumberland and stumble upon a crime there. Could we have reappearances of some favorite barristers or private nursing patients from the past? Whatever happened to Charles and Imogen Latterly? Anything, please! WIth all that said, I still stayed up until 2am to finish the book. Like other reviews I've read on other sites, I guessed the guilty party(ies) early on. It wasn't a surprise. For Sir Oliver, I wish only the best and look forward to what Perry has in store for him next!

    Marvelous

    Anne Perry is my very favorite author. She has written many wonderful and memorable series. Another can't put it down book.

    Anne Perry has written another very good story.

    She has presented a situation that has many different moral positions. It shows very well the attitudes of victorian England. I am a huge fan of Anne Perry, but I did think the moralizing was a little too much. I know that's a trademark of her books, but this time it was rather heavy-handed.

    Another good book in the long-running series.

    I'm hooked on the series! This one was a bit short, but long enough to cover the subject. After the outcome, I can't help but wonder what's in store for Sir Oliver!

    Good!

    As always it's a pleasure to read Ms. Perry's books. And, of course, wait for the next one.
