Un mar oscuro
Monk discovers a shocking truth while investigating the murder of a high-end prostitute with ties to an opium-dispensing doctor's widow.
Spanish Pubs Llc
"Perry expone con delicadeza un asunto que a su vez constituye un problema social en la vida real... Muy recomendable."
"Un intricado misterio psicológico en un marco histórico sin par."
"Un apasionante y absorbente relato... Nadie es tan bueno como Anne Perry en el uso de la palabra para pintar una escena y luego enriquecerla con sonidos y olores."
"The mysterious and dangerous waterfront world of London's 'longest street,' the Thames, comes to life."
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"An engrossing page-turner. . . There's no one better at using words to paint a scene and then fill it with sounds and smells than Anne Perry."
The Boston Globe
"As in all her Monk novels, Perry exhumes and exhibits another of the Victorian era's social evils."
As commander of the River Police, Monk is accustomed to violent death, but the mutilated female body found on Limehouse Pier in a cold December morning moves him with horror. Her neighbors can tell him little, only that the same unknown gentleman had visited her once a month for many years. She must be a prostitute, but she doesn't appear to be a fallen woman.
