Overview

Nurse Hester Latterly finds herself well suited for the task: accompany Mrs. Mary Farraline, an elderly Scottish lady in delicate health, on a short train trip to London. Yet Hester’s simple job takes a grave turn when Mrs. Farraline dies during the night. And when a postmortem examination of the body reveals a lethal dose of medicine, Hester is charged with murder–punishable by execution.

This notorious case presents detective William Monk with a daunting task: find a calculating killer among the prominent and coolly unassailable Farraline clan–and try to save Hester from the gallows.

Private investigator William Monk's trusted accomplice, Nurse Hester Latterly, is on trial for her life. She stands accused of murdering a wealthy patient, and Monk must race to Scotland to find the truth before she swings. Once again, Anne Perry delivers a taut, enthralling blend of courtroom thriller and complex, compelling whodunit. LG Alternate.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Perry staple character Nurse Hester Latterly is accused of murdering and robbing a patient. (Oct.)
Library Journal
In the 15th installment in Perry's popular Victorian mystery series, Inspector Monk helps a friend accused of murder.
Emily Melton
Perry's superb historical crime stories have garnered rave reviews and critical acclaim. Her latest, featuring English detective William Monk and nurse Hester Latterly, will no doubt catapult Perry once again onto the best-seller lists. (Sales aren't likely to be hurt by recent revelations that Perry herself committed murder as a teenager and served five years in an Australian prison.) Set in Victorian London, the story has Hester facing murder charges when her patient, elderly Scotswoman Mary Farraline, dies of a digitalis overdose. Unless Monk and attorney Oliver Rathbone can discover the identity of the real killer, Hester will stand trial and likely hang. Convinced the murderer is a member of Mary's wealthy and socially prominent Edinburgh family, Monk and Rathbone travel to Scotland, where they search for skeletons in the Farraline closet. Perry's rich prose and splendidly authentic renderings of the dress, manners, dialogue, and customs of mid-nineteenth century London, combined with a mesmerizing courtroom drama, a plot that's filled with surprising twists and unexpected suspense, and the unlikely but appealing team of Monk and Latterly make this one her best yet. A main selection of the Mystery Guild and an alternate selection of the Literary Guild.
