From the Publisher:
In his family life Angus Stonefield had been gentle and loving, in business a man of probity, and in his relationship with his twin brother, Caleb, a virtual saint. Now Angus is missing, and it appears more than possible that Caleb—a creature long since abandoned to depravity—has murdered him. Hired to solve the mystery, William Monk puts himself in Angus’s shoes, searching for clues to the missing man’s fate and his vicious brother’s whereabouts. Slowly Monk inches toward the truth—and also, unwittingly, toward the destruction of his good name and livelihood.
Author Bio
Anne Perry
Anne Perry, the mystery writer, was born Juliet Marion Hulme in Greenwich, England. Her childhood was a somewhat troubled one. She was often seriously ill, and her family also moved a great deal. It was when she was living in New Zealand that Hulme became notorious. She developed a close friendship with a fellow high school student, Pauline Parker, and in 1954, helped kill the girl's mother, Honora Parker. The case caused a great deal of public outrage. Hulme spent some years in prison, and was released in 1959, upon which she moved to England. At that time, she took the last name of her stepfather, and changed her name to Anne Perry. Perry's criminal past remained hidden for many years. After the 1994 movie dramatization of the murder, HEAVENLY CREATURES, a journalist finally put the pieces together, and Perry publicly admitted that she had once been Hulme. After leaving prison, she took on various jobs, including department store buyer and airline stewardess. Perry moved to Los Angeles for some years, working as an insurance writer and a limousine dispatcher, before she went back to the UK in the mid-70s. She published her first novel, THE CATER STREET HANGMAN, in 1979. Anne Perry is primarily a writer of historical mysteries. She is best known for two series that take place in Victorian England, one concerning Inspector Pitt, set in the 1880s; and the other about the amnesiac Inspector Monk, set in the 1850s. She has also branched out into the fantasy genre with her novels TATHEA and COME ARMAGEDDON.

Praise

Rapport
"Rich in detail and psychological nuances, this intelligently written and thoroughly intriguing mystery is uniquely a cut above most other contemporary works in this genre."

New York Times Book Review
"Ms. Perry's sixth novel featuring William Monk, a former Scotland Yard detective who has lost his memory...Its plot is a lurid melodrama owing...much to Robert Louis Stevenson and Wilkie Collins..." - Martin Seymour-Smith 11/05/1995
