    1. I truly enjoyed this book, even so after having a chance to meet Anne Perry This is not my normal genre but I was intrigued by the motivations of the characters in a time period I was not familiar with I especially appreciated so much the detailed without being laborious descriptions of time and place Excellent read.

    2. William Monks begimmimgsThe first few Monk novels estAblish the outlines of the series We learn of the hospital location and accident that cuffliNks Anne sis A e meet sHelter Latterly, John Evan and Oliver Rothbone who we will meet again and again in the later novels of the series The plot and details of Victorian England are detailed in Perry s Penn excellent manner Her layering on of street, domestic sartorial and political details is always a felig it and contributes to the pleasure other boo [...]

    3. I m of two minds about this book or rather books, since this is actually a compilation of three In general, I liked them mystery is my favorite genre The first book was gripping and drew me in quickly a Victorian era police officer with amnesia after a life threatening accident feels compelled to keep his memory loss a secret while he attempts to solve a difficult murder case The author draws her characters distinctly and with depth She is skilled at setting each scene with painstaking detail At [...]

    4. I bought this omnibus e book and read all three novels one after the other, so will review together These are the first three of Perry s William Monk series The Face of a Stranger, A Dangerous Mourning, and Defend and Betray I know I ve read the last one before, but it must have been quite some time ago I or less remembered how it went, but there was much still to enjoy I very much like Perry s work in general, and these were all good Following the larger arc of Monk s story, and that of Hester [...]

    5. Outstanding seriesI have just read the first three William Monk books in a row The mysteries are awesome but never Cozy They are designed to make us think and feel and develop,our empathy and compassion Whilst I love the Pitt series, it is not as dark Monk is complex, seeking himself as much as a solution to the mystery Harriet Latterly is a misfit of a woman in her time, and Perry does an amazing job of showing us the frustrations of women of a social class in that era, if,they had wit, intelli [...]

    6. Although I d read these three William Monk mysteries a few years ago, my mother recommended this compilation said she enjoyed it Mother knows best.If you d asked me years ago, if I d enjoy mysteries set in Victorian times, I d say no and in fact, avoided them My mistake There s something very wonderful about Anne Perry s historical mysteries, read today I look forward to entering that world, so descriptively written, with full characters and mysteriously dark surroundings Of course there are the [...]

    7. I wish there was a 3 and half stars I found these books to be boring at times but I couldn t stop reading them either I really enjoy the courtroom aspect of the books but there isn t a lot of action I did have a problem with the third book as I felt there was a huge clue and a character to interview which they neglected to do for a long long time I felt like screaming at Monk to go talk to this person It was annoying I think I will read Monk but I need a break and something less tedious before [...]

    8. The three books give you much to digest and consider in the laws of the old world England I am so grateful after finishing the third book Defend and Betray that we as a society can watch and recognize the nuances not seen by the family in this book Hopefully those who care will protect their children from this heart wrenching abuse Well written and packed with emotion.

    9. Greatly enjoying Anne Perry s work The William Monk series set in Victorian London is entertaining and educationala lovely blend of Downton Abbey and Murdoch Mysteries, without the science alas.

    10. These three books introduce the three main characters in this excellent series You meet William and Hester in the first book and Oliver in the second Each character is fully drawn and compelling, and the mysteries provide many red herrings before the solutions are revealed.

    11. This was a 3 book omnibus I thought the first book was great, the second book was good and the third book was a bit of a grind to get through I m not sure why these are called the William Monk Mysteries, as he s pretty much a minor character after the first book.

    12. Mysteries with a few twists and turns and a few surprises, compelling characters, and rather pointed social commentary I look forward to encounters with Monk, Hester, Rathbone, and many of the other secondary characters.

    13. Interesting and likable characters Good mystery development Interesting use of dialect Good historical background Definitely an enjoyable read and I am going to continue the series.

    14. At first I wasn t too intrigued by the main character, but there are a whole host of minor characters that are quite interesting, I find.

    15. Love William Monk mysteriesI loved the ending of this book along with all the twists and turns in it Thank Anne Perry for another great book.

    16. Anne Perry continues to keep you guessing in this series I loved her Pitt series and this didn t disappoint I enjoy the other series better but this is still a fun one.

    17. Very good discriptions of the Victorian life Main characters are well developed somewhat radical Hester is a nurse who has served in the Crimera who is talented and ethical.

    18. If you like victorian mysteries and strong womenthen you will love Hester and you will enjoy the Monk series.

    19. Anne Perry s novels are like my fall back setting If I m low on ideas of what to read next I can always know that I can go to the library to pick one up and I will enjoy it.
