    William Monk knows London's streets like the back of his hand; after all, they are where he earns his living. But the river Thames and its teeming docks - where towering schooners and clipper ships unload their fabulous cargoes and wharf rats and night plunderers ply their trades - is unknown territory.

    This is my favorite Monk book so far. (I've listened to alot but not all of them up to this one.) It has wonderful word pictures of life on and around the river at that time period and draws you more intimately into the lives of Monk, Hester, and Oliver Rathbone. It would make a great movie.

    The year is 1861. The American Civil War has just begun, and London arms dealer Daniel Alberton is becoming a very wealthy man. His quiet dinner party seems remote indeed from the passions rending America. Yet investigator William Monk and his bride, Hester, sense growing tensions and barely concealed violence. For two of the guests are Americans, each vying to buy Alberton’s armaments. Soon Monk and Hester’s forebodings are fulfilled as one member of the party is brutally murdered and two others disappear - along with Alberton’s entire inventory of weapons.

    I love the Monk series. This one seemed to have a few plot holes and Monk seemed to jump to conclusions early on as if the story was put together quickly. However, the story develops well later on. I enjoyed it and would listen to it again.

  • Mr. Midshipman Hornblower

    The year is 1793, the eve of the Napoleonic Wars, and Horatio Hornblower, a 17-year-old boy unschooled in seafaring and the ways of seamen, is ordered to board a French merchant ship and take command of crew and cargo for the glory of England. Though not an unqualified success, this first naval adventure teaches the young midshipman enough to launch him on a series of increasingly glorious exploits.

    Very disappointed. I had heard this series was very good. There is action but the character is not developed to any depth and no relationships are developed. There also seemed to be a jump from Hornblower being an inexperienced young man to an "in-charge" kind of guy. I like the Maturin-Aubry series so much better!
