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.
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.
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!
