Up imbedded in the neck of a wharf rat who richly deserved his sordid endDockside informers lead Monk to what may be a partial answer a floating palace of corruption on the Thames managed by Parfitt where a captive band of half starved boys are forced to perform vile acts for men willing to pay a high price for midnight pleasures Although Monk and his fearless wife Hester would prefer to pin a medal on Parfitt’s killer duty leads them in another direction to an unresolved crime fr First Sentence Hester was half asleep when she heard the slight sound as if someone were taking in a sharp breath and ten letting out a soft desperate gasp Inspector William Monk and his wife Hester are still trying to help young orphan Scuff overcome his horrific experience of being kidnapped for use on a ship owned by Jericho Phillips used to “entertain” wealthy corrupt men No one much cares that Mickey Parfitt has been murdered until the means of his death is discovered to be an expensive custom silk cravat belonging to a wealthy young man In the investigation they track Parfitt back to another such ship where 14 young boys are found held captive Before his suicide Lord Justice Sullivan also involved in the previous case had claimed wealthy barrister Arthur Ballinger was the power and money behind the boat A further complication is that the Monks’ friend barrister Oliver Rathbone is married to Ballinger’s daughter To say Anne Perry is a superb writer is anything but hyperbole There is no one who better captures the Victorian period From the homes of the wealthy to the lowest meanest parts of London she creates a fully realized world and time Her detail is exacting; answering any uestion a reader might have as to its veracity She doesn’t paint the pretty picture but the rough edged realistic view of the time Perry clearly illustrates the misconceptions and bias formed by people based only on social and economic differences The subject of pedophilia and pornography is timeless and terrible She raises strong moral and ethical issues but never in a manner that is preachy or strident Perry clearly conveys the internal struggles which can arise and asks very important uestions about loyalty and power; the greed for power even when used for good—but at which price The mystery itself is very strong; partly focused on the investigation and partly on the courtroom scenes Learning about legal and court procedures of the time were fascinating Nothing about her writing is dry; but rather strongly emotional yet never maudlin We are left at the end with an open uestion but not one that is detrimental to the story Although it can stand alone “Acceptable Loss” reads best as a continuation of the previous book “Execution Dock” Either way I strongly recommend “Acceptable Loss”ACCEPTABLE LOSS Hist Mys Insp William MonkHester London Victorian – VGPerry Anne – 17th in seriesBallantine Books 2011

Acceptable LossPerry’s new William and Hester Monk story a mesmerizing masterpiece of innocence and evil on London’s docks outshines all her previous novels in this successful and beloved seriesWhen the body of a small time crook named Mickey Parfitt washes up on the tide no one grieves; far from it But William Monk commander of the River Police is puzzled by the expensive silk cravat used to strangle Parfitt How did this elegant scarf whose original owner was obviously a man of substance end Perry is a wonderful writer and rarely does a Monk installment earn less than four stars but this one was agonizingly drawn out The last book left much unfinished so Acceptable Loss wrapped up the details from the last book Unfortunately that left a lot of pages to fill — and sadness and disappointment for one of my favorite characters The inner dialogue was over the top at times So good crime and trial but too much agonizing by Monk Hester and company My hope is the next book will begin with a clean slate and a straightforward crime
