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!

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:)

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?

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 . . .

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!!!!!!!

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

Anne Perry is marvelous! She manages to add just the right amount of information to her books that leaves you tingling with anticiption of the next book. Breach of Promise is definitely toward the top on my list of favorites. The Monk novels are just wonderful!

I have actually read this book twice. It was one of the first Anne Perry books I read and then went through the whole Monk series in order and enjoyed seeing how the relationship built up between the main characters.
