I've not read any of Anne Perry's books before so it was good to find something a little different to my usual choice of reading.
I really enjoyed this historical murder story, part of the William Monk detective series.
The setting is Victorian England 1857 and when Prudence Barrymore, a Crimean nurse is murdered in London's Royal Free Hospital, William Monk, a private investigator is called in to help find the murderer.
It's a complex plot with interesting and memorable characters. I really enjoyed the story as well as finding out more about aspects of Victorian England including the medical scene and women's lives.
Look forward to reading more in this series.
