Add to Wish List
As private investigator William Monk listens to young
Lucius Stourbridge plead for help in tracking down his
runaway fiancée, he feels a sense of heavy foreboding.
Miriam Gardiner disappeared suddenly from a croquet party
at the luxurious Bayswater mansion of her in-laws-to-be,
and has not been seen since. But on Hampstead Heath, Monk
finds the coach in which Miriam had fled and, nearby, the
murdered body of the coachman. There is no trace of
What strange compulsion could have driven the beautiful
widow to abandon the prospect of a loving marriage and
Monk’s attempt to answer the question proves a challenge,
as Miriam Gardiner’s fateful flight ends in a packed London
courtroom where brilliant barrister Oliver Rathbone wages
an uphill battle to absolve her from a charge of murder.
And in a race with the hangman, Monk and clever nurse
Hester Latterly – themselves now newlyweds – desperately
pursue the elusive truth . . . and an unknown killer whose
malign brilliance they have scarcely begun to fathom.
