THE KIRKUS REVIEWS
His name, they tell him, is William Monk, and he is a London police detective. But the accident that felled him has left him with only half a life; his memory and his entire past have vanished. As he tries to hide the truth, Monk returns to work and is assigned to investigate the brutal murder of a Crimean War hero and man about town. Which makes Monk's efforts doubly difficult, since he's forgotten his professional skills along with everything else....

I am new to Anne Perry novels (just read a Christmas novella which I enjoyed) and thought I would try her full length books and start at the beginning of the Monk series. I thought this was a great story, interesting characters and Ioved the historical details. I read it in one day curled up on the couch!

I've read all of Perry's other Victorian mystery series, the Thomas & Charlotte Pitt books, and loved them. Face of a Stranger is set slightly earlier, and with an entirely different set of characters. Our protagonist, Detective Monk, has had an accident resulting in complete amnesia, and thus has to solve not only his current case, but the mystery of who he is. I won't say more so I won't spoil anything, but definitely an engrossing story.

Great series of murder/mystery books with amnesiac Inspector William Monk as the protagonist. The series starts out just after the Crimean War in 1856. The works are historical fiction and are excellent in their descriptions of what war, the British courtroom, women's place in society, and the British healthcare system were like in Victorian England.
