  • A Matter of Trust

    Sir Oliver Rathbone comes to Monk’s home and asks for help with a problematic situation. A man’s wife has been kidnapped for ransom. The man, Harry Exeter, is willing to pay it, but he wants no police involvement. He simply wants Monk to accompany him to ensure the trade is made. Of course Monk agrees and with a few of his most trusted men set up a plan to safely ensure the exchange first, and once Kate Exeter is safely with her husband, attempt to capture the kidnappers. But their plan results in deadly circumstances and Monk is left with the gut-wrenching thought that they were betrayed by one of their own. Determined to find the perpetrators and ferret out who betrayed them, Monk throws his all into this case. But can he live with the truth! I have only read a few of the earlier Monk novels, but it was easy to pick up on the character and his current circumstances. I enjoyed the flavor of the late 1800’s as well as his loving relationship with his wife...who is also a strong female character of her own. My main complaint was the handwringing and “who do I trust” went on a bit much. But in the end, Monk redeemed himself and helped lay bare the truth, regardless of any personal consequences. Disclosure: I am voluntarily reviewing this book received through NetGalley.

  • Are his emotions getting in the way?

    This is a new to me author. I really liked this story and the characters were great. I liked the mystery and the early police procedures. Very interesting. I will be looking for more books by this author. Monk expects to help a man get his wife back from kidnappers. What he doesn't expect is to get ambushed and then to find the poor woman dead. He knows that someone on the team had to betray them. There was no other way it could have happened. So, while trying to figure out which of his men betrayed them all, he has to figure out who the kidnappers are and why they killed Kate. As the investigation progresses, two more people end up dead and there is no answer as to who is responsible. Monk knows how it feels to have your wife kidnapped and maybe he isn't thinking rationally. Are his emotions getting in the way on this investigation?

    Thanks for your feedback!
