From the Publisher
Anne Perry's spellbinding Victorian mysteries, especially those
featuring William Monk, have enthralled readers for a generation.
The Plain Dealer calls Monk "a marvelously dark, brooding
creation"-and, true to form, this new Perry masterpiece is as
deceptively deep and twisty as the Thames.
As commander of the River Police, Monk is accustomed to violent
death, but the mutilated female body found on Limehouse Pier one
chilly December morning moves him with horror and pity. The
victim's name is Zenia Gadney. Her waterfront 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-described as quiet and kempt-she doesn't appear to be a fallen
What sinister secrets could have made poor Zenia worth killing?
And why does the government keep interfering in Monk's
While the public cries out for blood, Monk, his spirited wife,
Hester, and their brilliant barrister friend, Oliver Rathbone,
search for answers. From dank waterfront alleys to London's
fabulously wealthy West End, the three trail an ice-blooded
murderer toward the unbelievable, possibly unprovable truth-and
ultimately engage their adversaries in an electric courtroom duel.
But unless they can work a miracle, a monumental evil will go
unpunished and an innocent person will hang.
Anne Perry has never worn her literary colors with greater
distinction than in A Sunless Sea, a heart-pounding novel
of intrigue and suspense in which Monk is driven to make the
hardest decision of his life.
