From Publishers Weekly
Continuation of the Henry Monk series set in Victorian London, in which the detective is hired by a woman who thinks her missing husband may have been murdered by his brother.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Perry's lingering fame from the murder she committed as an adolescent won't hurt her latest book's popularity, but there's no doubt that her historical mysteries would be critical and popular successes no matter what her background. Victorian detective William Monk returns, this time in one of the most challenging cases he's ever faced. Genevieve Stonefield begs Monk to find her missing husband, Angus, whom she fears has been killed by his twin brother, Caleb. Angus, a respected businessman, loyal husband and father, and pillar of the community, has disappeared after a visit to Caleb, who's as different from Angus as it's possible to be; he's a violent thief, ruffian, and blackguard who lives in one of London's most dangerous slums. Genevieve's fears that Angus is dead at Caleb's hand seem well founded; all Monk has to do is find the means, the motive, the opportunity--and the body. But the more he investigates, the more bizarre twists and frustrating dead ends he encounters, until his persistence finally breaks the case wide open in a stunning climax that surprises even the unflappable Monk. This one deserves high marks for superb plotting, fine writing, intriguing characters, and outstanding historical detail. Buy multiple copies.

The crime was quite complex and I certainly did not see the end coming. Very powerful.
Not too many unusual names in this one. Only one that pops up in every book because she's one of the main characters. Callandra, which I think is quite pretty.
My complaint was I had already purchased the hard copy many months ago and the old memory cells failed me. Consequently, paying the exorbitant Kimble price annoyed me sufficiently to complain about the cost of this novel. Amazon should include the date the books are originally published so old failing memory guys such as myself can control rising blood pressure so frequent during excess purchases.
