Anne Perry 
<b>Anne Perry’s seventeenth William Monk novel, now in paperback, is a mesmerizing masterpiece of innocence and evil on London’s docks, a welcome addition to this successful and beloved series.</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> <b>NATIONAL BESTSELLER</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> 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.<br /><br />BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Anne Perry's<i> A Sunless Sea.</i><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> <b>“Masterful storytelling . . . [the] best in the series to date.”—<i>The Star-Ledger</i></b>
