The Shifting Tide (William Monk, Book 14)
What a wonderful story! David Colacci is an excellent narrator. Is there anything you would change about this book? Couldn't get past the awful narration, done by an American trying to do a British accent, and failing, and I just couldn't listen to it, and will return for my credit. What a shame! This was just another fantastic showing from Anne Perry. Her stories and the way she allows them to unfold is simply amazing.
The narrator also did a fantastic job. He is really coming into his own with these characters. I can only suggest again to read this series. I'm actually in the hospital right now, which is never fun, but this book allowed me to escape the doldrums, escape this rather unpleasant situation, and be transported to England in the 's It has allowed my mind to sail away despite the cage my body is becoming.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? There were several compelling subplots. Maybe they were not the most believable, but they kept me hooked. What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shifting Tide? When Mercy put Ruth Clark in her place Mercy seemed real shy and reserved.

Did David Colacci do a good job differentiating all the characters? The narrator did an okay job Actually, it's hard to put into words except that the story seemed to take forever to get done. He's not my most favorite narrator. This book seemed different from what you'd normally expect from the author.
It's good to branch out with different or unexpected story lines but somehow, it felt a bit 'off'. The ending was a bit abrupt Off to read the next book to see what happens. I like her characters, and I usually can allow myself to be let along through the plot of her books.
What was your reaction to the ending?

No spoilers please! Getting plague no picnic. World wide pandemic, no way. Oh me of little faith.
The Shifting Tide
The author's seduction of the reader not sufficient for me in this book. Which scene was your favorite? When the two detectives descend into the bowels of the sailing ship near the end of the book. Who should the stars be?
Her Victorian England pulsates with life and is peopled with wonderfully memorable characters. When it comes to the Victorian mystery, Anne Perry has proved that nobody does it better. Perry has a wonderful feel for period and remains utterly convincing. The period detail remains fascinating, and [Perry's] grasp of Victorian character and conscience still astonishes.
With a steady hand at dissecting character and motivation, a keen grasp of social history and a flair for description of Victorian London, Perry guarantees a good read to those who like their murder in a believable historical and psychological context.

Harry Potter. Popular Features. New Releases. Description When the Maude Idris docks at the Pool of London, laden with ebony, spices and first-grade tusks of ivory collected from her voyage to Zanzibar, Clement Louvain leaves four armed seamen on board to guard the precious cargo. But as soon as the relief for the night watch arrives ready for duty in the morning, he finds the ivory gone and one of the seamen dead.
Hindered by his ignorance of the river and its customs, and ashamed of the fact that he so badly requires the huge fees that Louvain is prepared to pay, William Monk nevertheless begins his investigation into the theft and murder. Meanwhile Hester's work at the refuge at Portpool Lane is encountering acute financial difficulties. Sick prostitutes are arriving daily and the medicines needed to help them are running out.
When a man arrives promising to pay a huge amount of money for the care of one particular woman, Hester is astonished to meet him. He is none other than Clement Louvain. So who is the woman he is so generously helping?
