The decision Rathbone makes will draw Monk deep into a dangerous case that will shape the rest of both their live I don't mind when characters reveal what they're thinking but there's too much of that in this novel The plot also seemed a bit stale as it spent a lot of time rehashing an earlier book I usually like the books in this series but this was disappointing

Anne Perry ¹ Blind Justice text

Adored by his congregation stands accused of terrible corruption and fraud which has ruined the lives of those he's betrayedIn court each victim affirms Taft's guilt but when the defence's star witness tears their stories apart the case seems lost Rathbone realis I've always looked forward to new books in Anne Perry's William Monk series but I'm afraid the series has outlived its vitality There's a good deal of repetition and many of the characters seem to be slogging along familiar paths Several of the previous books have provided intriguing or informative details about Victorian England but there's little new to be learned from this oneI also found the transformation of one character Margaret Rutherford something less than credible and an injustice to MargaretI still like the main characters of this series enough that I enjoyed some of the time I spent with them this time out but I'm not very optimistic about next time

Blind JusticeWinner of the Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award for Best Historical Novel 2014Oliver Rathbone William Monk's close friend has presided brilliantly over his first cases as a judge But the next will bring a far greater challenge Abel Taft a charismatic minister First Sentence Hester let the hansom cab pass then crossed Portpool Lane and went in through the door to the clinic for sick and injured prostitutes From the very beginning we are introduced to the main characters as well as being provided their backstories While this may not be strictly necessary for continuing readers it is a boon for readers new to the series and an author who doesn’t take forget new readers is one to be commended Perry has wonderful ability for conveying insights into the lives of her characters and their thoughts They become very real people to the reader; people about whom you care In this book that is particularly important Ms Perry excels at raising social moral and ethical issues and looking at them from various sides She poses uestions and while she may provide her answers she causes the reader to consider and weigh their own answers She even address crime by those who feel they are entitled”they all think they will be the one to get away with it” Although this introspection does slow the first part of the book she than makes up for that later Perry creates a very strong sense of time and societal conventions yet often in subtle ways A character is admiring a particular painting”it is uite lovely” he said instead looking at the little painting “I think he could well become professional don’t you?” Henry smiled “Actually it’s a ‘she’ so I doubt it” There is nothing fluffy about a Perry book She asks serious uestions addresses serious issues and makes you look at things in a way you may not have previously Although set in Victorian England all the issues she raises are just as relevant today At the same time the story has an excellent twist plenty of suspense drama and tension “Blind Justice” may be a bit of a morality play but it’s also a cracking good and suspenseful mystery with possibly devastating conseuences for one of the principal characters Although a bit slow and repetitive in the beginning one should always trust that Ms Perry will make it well worth your while to stay with it and read to the end You won’t regret itBLIND JUSTICE Hist Mys MonkHesterOliver Rathbone London Vict – VGPerry Anne – 19th in seriesBallentine Books 2013
