Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is 1861. The American Civil War has just begun, and London arms dealer Daniel Alberton is becoming a very wealthy man. His quiet dinner party seems remote indeed from the passions rending America. Yet investigator William Monk and his bride, Hester, sense growing tensions and barely concealed violence. For two of the guests are Americans, each vying to buy Albertons armaments. Soon Monk and Hesters forebodings are fulfilled as one member of the party is brutally murdered and two others disappear- along with Albertons entire inventory of weapons. As Monk and Hester track the man they believe to be the murderer all the way to Washington, D.C., and the bloody battlefield at Manassas, Slaves of Obsession twists and turns like a powder-keg fuse and holds the reader breathless and spellbound. . . .

About the Author

Among Anne Perrys other novels featuring investigator William Monk are Funeral in Blue, The Twisted Root, A Breach of Promise, The Silent Cry, and Weighed in the Balance. She also writes the popular novels featuring Thomas and Charlotte Pitt, including The Whitechapel Conspiracy, Half Moon Street, Bedford Square, Brunswick Gardens, Ashworth Hall, and Pentecost Alley. “Her grasp of Victorian character and conscience still astonishes,” said The Cleveland Plain Dealer about the author. Hundreds of thousands of readers in Europe and America agree. Anne Perry lives in Scotland.
