Description
NATIONAL BESTSELLER For a generation, Anne Perry's New York Times bestselling novels have invited readers to explore the brilliantly seductive heart of Victorian London, where great wealth and great evil live side by side, and great men sometimes make unfortunate choices.   In Perry's stunning new novel, Hester Monk, the wife of William Monk, commander of the Thames River Police, questions the finances of a London church whose members' hard-earned charitable gifts appear to have ended up in the pocket of charismatic preacher Abel Taft, paying for his fine home and the stylish outfits of his wife and daughters.   Taft is accused of extortion, and brilliant barrister Oliver Rathbone, newly appointed a judge, is chosen to preside over his trial. It seems clear that Taft is indeed guilty. However, at the last second, the defense produces a witness who completely undermines the charges. Then Rathbone makes a well-meaning but reckless move that could ruin his career, his reputation, and his life.   Blind Justice presents a rich and lively panorama of London life, from the teeming Thames docks to the wealthy West End, while unfolding a magnificent courtroom drama. And while justice, law, and morality hang in the balance, Hester and Monk race to save their distinguished friend Rathbone from disgrace. The incomparable art of Anne Perry grips us fast until the final, unforgettable scene. Praise for Blind Justice   "A staggering achievement . . . Perry's command of plot and prose shines." -- Bookreporter   "Ranks among the best [Anne] Perry has written. Her courtroom scenes have the realism of Scott Turow." -- Huntington News   "Gripping . . . Those who love Victorian England will relish Ms. Perry's presentation of period details. Her mastery of this time and place gives credence to the characters' moral and legal struggles." -- New York Journal of Books   Praise for Anne Perry and her Wiliam Monk novels   A Sunless Sea   "Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries are marvels." -- The New York Times Book Review   Acceptable Loss   "Masterful storytelling and moving dialogue." -- The Star-Ledger   Execution Dock   "[An] engrossing page-turner . . . There's no one better at using words to paint a scene and then fill it with sounds and smells than Anne Perry." -- The Boston Globe   Dark Assassin   "Brilliant . . . a page-turning thriller . . . blending compelling plotting with superbly realized human emotion and exquisite period detail." --Jeffery Deaver, author of Edge   The Shifting Tide   "The mysterious and dangerous waterfront world of London's 'longest street,' the Thames, comes to life." --South Florida Sun-Sentinel

display_description "Inspector William Monk searches for proof of his friend's innocence in a controversial and dangerous case, in the nineteenth novel in Anne Perry's acclaimed series. Oliver Rathbone, now a judge, is presiding over a trial for corruption. Proud of his elevation to this position, he is determined to be proper and fair, and, with much skill, convicts a deeply corrupt man. On the back of this success Rathbone is given a controversial new case: that of a charismatic minister accused of using other people's faith for his own gain. This will be a real test of skill, perhaps even dangerous - is this what Rathbone wants? A sensational case begins. True to his principles, Rathbone delivers justice - but at a cost, as murder and suicide ensue, and he is arrested under the charge of blackmail. Can Monk unravel the truth behind the court hysteria? Or will Rathbone spend the rest of his years in prison for exposing a relevant truth, in an appropriate way, for a cause he saw as just?" -- from author's web page
