The Face of a Stranger
by Anne Perry




Overview -
In this exhilarating series debut, police detective William Monk must solve the mystery of his own past.

His name, they tell him, is William Monk, and he is a London police detective. But the accident that felled him has left him with only half a life; his memory and his entire past have vanished. As he tries to hide the truth, Monk returns to work and is assigned to investigate the brutal murder of a Crimean War hero and man about town. Which makes Monk's efforts doubly difficult, since he's forgotten his professional skills along with everything else.

"Richly textured with the sights and sounds of London and its countryside . . . Solidly absorbing and Perry's best to date."--Kirkus Reviews
