review 1: Love, love, love Anne Perry! One of my favorite authors! Excellent detail woven like a fine tapestry. Compelling mysteries that keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. Images pop into my head like I'm watching a movie. In fact, I'm wondering why these haven't been made into movies? Maybe they have? Something I'll need to check. As I am reading this, I realize I've read it before. I've read many of Anne's books. Perhaps it is her own interesting background that makes her this master storyteller.
review 2: Execution Dock is 16th in the William Monk mystery series set in Victorian London. Monk is in charge of the Thames River Police, chosen by the previous Commander Durban. Monk is anxious to prove his mettle and honor Durban by bringing to justi
... morece Jericho Phillips, a vicious criminal who traps young boys and uses them for sadistic purposes to satisfy illegal perverted appetites of high-ranking customers. Durban had pursued Phillips many years without success. When Monk at last captures Phillips and brings him to trial for torture and murder, he feels justice will be served. However, a mysterious client hires Oliver Rathbone to defend Phillips. Can the deep friendship and loyalty shared by Monk, Rathbone and Hester survive the test? This is a deep story of honor, loyalty, judgement, wisdom, justice, friendship, love and betrayal. Possibly the most powerful and riveting book yet in the series, all that has come before in Monk's, Hester's and Rathbone's relationships is now put to the test. I absolutely recommend this book, but strongly suggest reading the entire series in order, for full appreciation of the conflict. While I enjoyed every page, from two-thirds of the way through this book, I could not put it down. less
