    Story

    On Jericho Phillips' floating brothel, sex slaves are forced to endure unspeakable acts. Now one such soul, 13-year-old Fig, is found with his throat cut, his tortured body tossed into the river. Commander William Monk of the River Police swears that Phillips will hang for this abomination. But the miscreant is as wily as he is monstrous, and his wealthy clients seem far beyond the reach of the law.

    Marjorie says: "Ruined by the narrator"
    "Another great Anne Perry"
    Overall

    I would like to reply to the first reviewer because I've already sung Perry's praises and have nothing to add to that. I find the Monk character fascinating because he represents that dark past that is only half-remembered. Because Anne Perry herself committed murder as a young girl, she has lived w it and I believe the Monk character grows from this.

    When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

    Richard says: "Intriguing story but only average writing"
    "drudery to listen to!"
    Overall

    Sometimes, I cannot for the life of me understand why certain books become so popular. This one is written in a very repetitive style (yawn) and there's not much of a plot, but it's stretched out for many hours. I jumped to the end so I could see what happened, but I sure didn't enjoy the 6 hrs I did listen to.
