For a generation, Anne Perryâ€™s New York Times
bestselling novels have invited readers to explore the
brilliantly seductive heart of Victorian London, where great
wealth and great evil live side by side, and great men
sometimes make unfortunate choices.
Perryâ€™s stunning new novel, Hester Monk, the wife of William
Monk, commander of the Thames River Police, questions the
finances of a London church whose membersâ€™ hard-earned
charitable gifts appear to have ended up in the pocket of
charismatic preacher Abel Taft, paying for his fine home and
the stylish outfits of his wife and daughters.
Taft is accused of extortion, and brilliant
barrister Oliver Rathbone, newly appointed a judge, is
chosen to preside over his trial. It seems clear that Taft
is indeed guilty. However, at the last second, the defense
produces a witness who completely undermines the charges.
Then Rathbone makes a well-meaning but reckless move that
could ruin his career, his reputation, and his life.
Blind Justice presents a rich and lively
panorama of London life, from the teeming Thames docks to
the wealthy West End, while unfolding a magnificent
courtroom drama. And while justice, law, and morality hang
in the balance, Hester and Monk race to save their
distinguished friend Rathbone from disgrace. The
incomparable art of Anne Perry grips us fast until the
final, unforgettable scene.
