The two figures had been on the bridge. He had grasped hold of her. To save her, or to push her? Murder, suicide or accident? Inspector William Monk of the Thames River Police watches helplessly as the man and woman fall to their deaths. Still feeling his way in a new post, Monk knows he must solve the mystery to gain the respect of his men. Soon both he and Hester find themselves powerfully involved in the story of the dead woman, Mary Havilland, and her quest to vindicate her father. Two months previously, James Havilland had been found dead. An engineer working for the Argyll Construction Company, he was convinced that a major disaster was about to happen in the tunnels where London's desperately needed new sewer system was being built. Maddened by his obsession, he'd apparently shot himself. Mary had never accepted that. And now she was dead too. Was it chance or more sinister than that?

For avid Annne Perry fans, particularly of the Thomas Monk variety, you won't be disappointed.
Marvelous at drawing characters and conveying emotions and thoughts from the slightest of mannerisms, Perry again shows her proclivity for British mysteries.
She really is a master writer.
The only drawback is that I was not nearly as enamoured with the victim as Mr. Monk or his wife. I found their emotional connection to the victim to be a bit tenuous to warrant such passionate responses from the Monks. But, then, the Monks are quite a passionate couple, despite their Victorian surroundings.
I loved the little ragamuffin's character and will be interested to see what becomes of him. Quite an extraordinary little boy.
