Book Description

1 Nov 1999
In a sensational breach of promise suit, two wealthy social climbers are suing on behalf of their beautiful daughter, Zillah. The defendant is Zillah's alleged fiancé, brilliant young architect Killian Melville, who adamantly declares that he will not, cannot, marry her. Utterly baffled by his client's refusal, Melville's counsel, Sir Oliver Rathbone, turns to his old comrades in crime--investigator William Monk and nurse Hester Latterly. But even as they scout London for clues, the case suddenly and tragically ends. An outcome that no one--except a ruthless murderer--could have foreseen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but.... 8 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Readers should be aware that this is the SAME book as Breach of Promise by Anne Perry. Published under a different title presumably for the US market. BEWARE!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, Anne. . .where are the last six pages??? 6 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I don't think I could ever totally trash any book that Anne writes. As usual, Oliver, Hester, and William make a great team, and the big surprise that comes right after the murder midway through the book made me gasp out loud. . .as did the resolution of the subplot involving the investigative work William does for Miss Jackson. But when I turned the last page, I said to myself, "Hold on here! Is this case concluded or not?" Frankly, half the fun of seeing the mystery solved is the big final scene where the big society person gets exactly what's coming to him or her. Well, I checked to see if any pages had been torn out of my library copy of the book. Nope. All I can say is, "Anne, don't be in such a big hurry to get your book to the publisher next time." This one suffers from the same thing that made me stop reading John Grisham--a hurried ending that leaves significant pieces of the plot unresolved. Resolve the mystery next time and keep us guessing about the relationships, not vice versa. Anne, you've done better. . .and you can do it again:)

5.0 out of 5 stars How will it end? 13 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Before "The sin of the wolf" was my favourite, but this time I really couldn't stop reading...Mrs Perry writing and descriptions of the characters are so deep that it's impossible not to think and behave as one of them. My favourite one is of course Monk! I'm so romantic so at the end of this book I found me jumping of joy, laughing and running from one toom to another. I bet with a friend of mine about the relationship among Hester- Monk- Rathbone. I was sure Monk would be the right person for her. Now, I' m really looking forward to reading Mrs Perry next book. How will this love end?

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious, overdrawn courtroom drama 29 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have admired and enjoyed Ms. Perry's style, plot development, and particularly her characters. "Breach" is not her best as it is unecessariliy prolonged and repetative; it almost says 'maybe you don't understand this. so we'll go over it again'. But she'll rebound, probably better than ever

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Page-Turner! 1 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
There were two instances in this book where I nearly dropped it from excitement, disbelief and admiration for an author who continues to keep her readers guessing. This Anne Perry mystery is absolutely one of her top ones. I was completely unprepared for the twists and turns that she took. Her knowledge of the Victorian era is so vast that I almost believe she has a window to the past.... Hester, Monk and Rathbone do not disappoint--a definite page turner. I can't believe I have to wait monthes for the next one!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one!! 9 Mar 2012
By Marg
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was all I was hoping for in an Ann Perry mystery. It was informative- more interesting background into the Victorian era. It was engaging - I could not put it down - in fact I had to cheat and read the end so that I could go to sleep. It was satisfying. I have read several of her stories about William Monk and Hester Latterly, but this answers some of the romantic questions that I had been wondering about. Altogether a happy experience. Perhaps I'll read it again before my husband gets to it . . .
