Death of a Stranger by Anne Perry
While William Monk is a nice character, it was his wife, Hester, who kept me listening. She was not the weak, let-me-ask-my-detective-husband-what-I-should-do type. She was strong willed and independent while being a great wife.
Honestly, the book could have dropped the William Monk story line and I would not have cared. It was Hester's story that was compelling, suspenseful, and fun to follow. I need to see if I can get my hands on more of this series. Perhaps there will be more Hester Monk than William Monk.
