    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Local businessman Harry Exeter doesn't want the aid of the Thames River Police in tracking down the men who kidnapped his wife, Kate. He only asks them to help him navigate Jacob's Island, a creepy mass of decrepit buildings where he will hand off a large sum of money in exchange for her life. But when they arrive at the meeting place, Commander Monk and five of his best men are attacked from all sides, and Monk is left wondering who could have given away their plans--and why anyone would want to harm Kate Exeter. As Monk follows leads from Kate's worried cousin and a crafty clerk at the bank where Exeter gathered the ransom money, it seems inevitable that one of his own men has betrayed him..."-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2018 November #1

A nightmarish atmosphere infuses the central crime scene in William Monk's twenty-fourth case, involving the kidnapping and rescue of Kate Exeter, which comes at an exorbitant cost. Monk gathers five of his best river policemen and, with Kate's husband, Harry, (and the ransom money) aboard, runs two river boats out to the derelict Jacob's Island community. They have been directed inside a ramshackle, stilted building that shifts at sunset, just as the tide begins to rise. Experienced readers will suspect something awful is about to occur, but they will never guess what. The unraveling of events is labyrinthine and shocking, the motive all too human. As always, Perry adds a psychological twist for readers to mull over; in this case, it's the lengths to which we go to hide our shameful secrets. Readers attracted to bleak, detailed Victorian mysteries might also look at Alex Grecian's Walter Day series, starting with The Yard? (2012), and the Silas Quinn series by Roger Morris, beginning with Summon up the Blood (2012), both of which are intelligent mysteries with tangled roots and startling crimes set in a darkly disturbing nineteenth-century Britain.

PW Reviews 2018 July #2

In Edgar-finalist Perry's riveting 24th William Monk novel set in Victorian England (after 2017's An Echo of Murder), an attorney approaches the Thames River police commander on behalf of Harry Exeter, an affluent man whose wife was abducted in broad daylight from a London riverbank the previous day. Exeter, who has assembled the considerable ransom demanded, wants Monk's help with handing it over at the site that the kidnappers have set for the exchange: Jacob's Island, not literally an island but a "region of interconnecting waterways with old offices and wharfs." Monk agrees to accompany Exeter there the next day, and assembles a group of his most trusted officers to be on the scene in disguise. But despite Monk's careful planning, the exchange ends in bloody failure, and he's left to wonder who on his team gave the kidnappers the details of his operation. The added suspense from Monk's mole hunt makes this one of the series' more powerful recent entries. Agent: Donald Maass, Donald Maass Literary. (Sept.)
