This book is widely available through the New York Public Library.
When asking for a book at the NYPL please tell them you are in a book club and need the book by a certain date. They will put a reserve out and get one from another branch, or tell you the closest library to pick up a copy.

About the SCNY Mystery Book & Video Club
Since 2013 the SCNY Book Club has met monthly with the exception of June and July. The books discussed are primarily mystery novels. Some memorable authors explored have included Agatha Christie, Lee Child, Louise Penny and Ruth Rendell.
Books are selected based on geographic or historical interest, such as works by author Donna Leon whose crime novels are set in Venice, Italy and Peter Tremayne, Celtic scholar and historian whose focus is Seventh Century Ireland. We have had new authors discuss their writings including Paul Paradise, who writes about murder, trademark counterfeiting, and product piracy and Radha Vatsal, award winning mystery writer whose books center around a young female reporter in New York City during the 1910’s.
All books selected are readily accessible through the public library, and when not, can be purchased for a nominal fee. This is in alliance with the SCNY 50l (c) (3) Not for Profit organization status, as providing free arts programs for the general public.

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.
