Anne Perry's Victorian England pulsates with life and is peopled with wonderfully memorable characters' - Faye Kellerman After a brilliant military career in India, General Thaddeus Carlyon finally meets death not in the frenzy of battle, but at a London dinner party, in what appears to be a freak accident.
What readers are saying about Defend and Betray : 'As brilliant and absorbing as ever Great writing and brilliant characters ' ' Catches the atmosphere of the time really well.
Anne Perry always tells a great story, keeps you turning pages and always wanting more ' 'A very good read. Hooked from front page to last '. In deze serie View all Boek 4. He didn't even consider them! The first half of the book was a repetition of the same facts, ad nauseum. It took far too long for the story to get rolling - about pages too long.
In spite of my disappointment with this installment, I liked the first two Monk books enough to keep on reading the series. Jun 03, Pat rated it really liked it. I literally could not put this down for the final courtroom scene. I won't give away the final revelations, but they are shockng and riveting. I'm a big fan of Perry, and this is one of her best. Perry gives us a few red herrings indicating that Alexandra may not be the killer, but the question quickly becomes, why did she do it, not if there is another perpetrator.
We know she is sacrificng herself for someone, but who and why?
Perry skillfully reels out the line. The most interesting character i I literally could not put this down for the final courtroom scene. The most interesting character is Monk, still grappling with his amnesia. When he finally realizes who is the woman and lover he helped exonerate of killing her husband, his self-knowledge grows in leaps and bounds--as does his appreciation of the prickly but courageous and brilliant Hester.
Also, his constant realization of exactly what kind of bastard he was before the memory loss, and knowledge that the damage is done, gives him a sympathetic humanity. The REAL tragedy of this book is how every woman character is victimized in England, when the Empire was starting to fray the Indian Mutiny was taking place.
It's hard for us to imagine having zero rights to protect yourself or your children and have no alternative to staying with an abusive husband and father. Edith's plight of having to return to her witch mother's home after her hsuband dies is heartwrenching, as are her attempts to find employment to escape Felicia. The abuse and sacrifices that Hester has to make as a woman who IS employed are outrageous.
The true depths of Felicia's and Louisa's monstrousness are not revealed until the final pages, and it will take your breath away!
