On a London riverbank, when the body of small-time crook Mickey Parfitt washes up with the tide, no one grieves. But William Monk, commander of the River Police, is puzzled by the murder weapon: an elegant scarf whose original owner was obviously a man of substance. Dockside informers lead Monk to a floating palace of corruption on the Thames managed by Parfitt, where a band of half-starved boys is held captive for men willing to pay a high price for midnight pleasures. Though Monk and his fearless wife, Hester, would gladly reward Parfitt’s killer, duty leads them in another direction—to an unresolved crime, to a deadly confrontation with some of the empire’s most respected men, and ultimately to a courtroom showdown with Monk’s old friend, Oliver Rathbone, in a trial of nearly unbearable tension and suspense.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Anne Perry's A Sunless Sea.

A Page Turner in True Anne Perry Style!

Yet another suspenseful, hanging onto every word book from Anne Perry. The characters are so alive and real, you smile at triumphs, fret over their indecisions, and are saddened by losses. William and Hester Monk are some are of favorite fictional characters and Scruff ranks pretty high on my list as well! Thank you for another great read, Anne!
