    Anne Wynter might not be who she says she is.... But she's managing quite well as a governess to three highborn young ladies. Her job can be a challenge: in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play that might be a tragedy (or might be a comedy; no one is sure), and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he's the first man who has truly tempted her, and it's getting harder and harder to resist.

    As commander of the River Police, Monk is accustomed to violent death, but the mutilated female body found on Limehouse Pier one chilly December morning moves him with horror and pity. The victim’s name is Zenia Gadney. Her waterfront neighbors can tell him little - only that the same unknown gentleman had visited her once a month for many years. She must be a prostitute, but - described as quiet and kempt - she doesn’t appear to be a fallen woman. What sinister secrets made poor Zenia worth killing?

    What did you love best about A Sunless Sea?

    The twists and turns of the character development.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Each chapter brought about a new question to be answered.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The protection of the reputation of the dead woman, by the people she lived around. They didn't see her as a street prostitute.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't want to put it down. I wanted to finish it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Anne Perry's writing bring the reader to the period in time when life was fragile.She does include in the story the political climate, the economics of the social system. The legal system that determined guilt and subsequently three weeks later the accused was hanged.The story was written during the time when opium was not regulated and the consequences were immediate.When I read Anne Perry's books, I know Monk's history and way of life. He didn't drop onto the page but emerged fully formed. When she write a Monk story, Monk doesn't change . The story developes around the character.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Dance with a Duke?

    When he carried her from the ball.


    What about Leslie Bellair’s performance did you like?

    Clear narrator. Easy to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the only audio book for this author I could find, it's an older book. Her writing is done very well, full characters, I'd like to listen to her more recent work.
