Anne Perry is known for her British historical mysteries – and this William Monk novel is set on London’s famous Thames River. Blood on the Water starts fast and ends fast – but he middle is on the slow side. So if you’re looking for a non-stop page-turner this may not be for you. If you don’t mind a slow, steady read for the majority of the book, Blood on the Water is for you. And if you’re a fan of any of the William Monk books – this is a must-read. It’s a good, clean mystery set in Victorian England, exposing the time for it’s class, politics and power struggles.
