About the Book
Perry does not ease into the action, blasting you directly between the eyes on page one. Sir Oliver Rathbone shows up at William and Hester Monk’s doorstep, and his demeanor is both dour and rushed. There is no time for pleasantries between old friends who know each other so well, so Rathbone cuts right to the chase. He makes Monk aware of a man named Harry Exeter, who is faced with the kidnapping of his young wife, Kate. Exeter has specifically asked for the aid of the River Police, of which Monk is Commander, to assist with the delivery of the ransom money to a location on the unsafe Jacob’s Island.
