Book Description

2 Feb 1995 Inspector William Monk Mysteries
When nurse Hestor Latterly accompanies the elderly Mrs Mary Farraline on a short trip to London, her only medical duty is to ensure her charming patient takes her heart medicine. But Mrs Farraline dies during the night. When her missing brooch 'turns up' in Hester's possession she is arrested for theft, until a post-mortem reveals a lethal dose of medicine in Mrs Farraline's body, and the charge becomes murder. Inspector William Monk must find a killer amongst the aloof Farraline clan, and in a Scottish courtroom the family's secrets will be exposed - or buried for ever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sins of the Wolf 19 Mar 2011
By Rich
Format:Paperback
Hester takes up a job as nursemaid in Edinburgh but finds herself accused of murder.

This is the last in a stack of Anne Perry's that I have and having finished this, I think it might be a while before I pick up another one. A problem is that a lot of the book is devoted to Hester's predicament. Unfortunately this lacks any real suspense as the outcome is fairly obvious. The family of the murder victim, the Farralines are interesting but Perry spends too much time away from them. The revelations at the climax hint at a darker, much more interesting novel, had the book focused on them more. Pitt and Hester also prove to be rather irritating this time. The developments in their relationship are handled well but Perry's descriptions of their heightened emotional states becomes very tiresome, as Perry tends to repeat herself over and over again. So,there is a good story here but it's overwhelmed by the regular characters.

I'm in the process of reading this and so far am enjoying it. Anne Perry really takes you back to the late 19th century.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of her best 11 Oct 2013
By Franwil
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was again one that I read years ago from the library and the only thing I remembered about it was the fact that Florence Nightingale had appeared in Hester's defence! Otherwise it was like reading a new book! Thought it one of her best, very well put together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe a tv series could rescue it 12 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback
I'm always looking for a new historical murder mystery series and was pleased to come across this: the premise sounded intriguing, and the dark and mysterious title and cover promised something I could really get my teeth into.
Set in Edinburgh in the years following the Crimean War, the story begins with a Sherlock Holmes-type conundrum: who could have got into the railway carriage and murdered Mrs Farraline with an overdose of digitalis, as her nurse slept? The series' ongoing hero, Inspector William Monk, is called in to sift through the clues and interview all the family members searching for a motive and the killer, while sorting out his relationship with the accused nurse, Hester Latterly.
Unfortunately, there's no spark to this book at all. You can almost hear the wheels turning as the author grinds out the plot (sometimes going up some very unlikely avenues) and plods through all the characters in turn.
She over-describes everything and tells us what everyone is thinking throughout. And it's impossible to ignore her awful habit of introducing each new character by describing their physical attributes in detail and telling us exactly what they mean ... "He looked grizzled and dangerous, like an old bear, his black eyes and sharp brows accentuating his air of intense concentration, and the fact that he feared nothing and was deceived by no-one" ...
I kept thinking that, given a good scriptwriter and casting director, this would make a much better tv series.
