Sudden, Fearful Death

by

Sudden, Fearful Death Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a London hospital, Prudence Barrymore, a talented nurse who had once been one of Florence Nightingale’s angels of mercy in the Crimean War, meets sudden death by strangulation. Private inquiry agent William Monk is engaged to investigate this horrific crime–which intuition tells him was no random stroke of violence by a madman.

Greatly helped by his unconventional friend Hester Latterly, another of Miss Nightingale’s nurses, and barrister Oliver Rathbone, Monk assembles a portrait of the remarkable woman. Yet he also discerns the shadow of a tragic evil that darkens every level of society, and a frightening glimmer of his own eclipsed past.

Synopsis:

Victorian private inquiry agent William Monk is hired to investigate the brutal rape of a young London woman and the strangulation murder of nurse Prudence Barrymore, an extraordinary woman who had served in the Crimea with Florence Nightingale. Reprint. PW.
