An inspector, having lost his prior memory, is called on to handle a murder of a member of a prominent family. He calls on a former associate / nemesis to nurse the matriarch of the family. Interesting plot, with somewhat laborious developing of the clues leading to the solving of the case. Lengthy tape, but worthy of a listen. ( )

Interesting read, both the mystery and the cultural assumptions the protagonists constantly run up against. ( )

I really liked the first of this series (Face of a Stranger), but this one echoed a lot of the same points without tugging at my sympathy strings. Yes there were some interesting twists and turns of the plot, and emotional highs, but I would say it's not as good as the first one. I did like the way the author added in real-life, historical bits though- a very nuanced, non-intrusive way of explaining different customs that Victorians of 1853 would have taken for granted. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804110379, Mass Market Paperback)

Inspector William Monk has his hands full when an aristocrat's daugher is stabbed to death in her own bed. He is instructed to proceed without delay, but finds his efforts hamstrung by the lingering traces of amnesia and the craven ineptitutde of his supervisor, who would love to see him fail. With the help of Hester Latterly, formerly a nurse with Florence Nightingale, Monk gropes warily through the silence and shadows, knowing that with each step he comes closer to the appalling truth....
"A richly textured, masterfully plotted, thoroughly enjoyable story."
