William Monk battles the very people he is trying to protect
Commander William Monk of the Thames River Police has never seen a more gruesome crime scene: A Hungarian warehouse owner lies pierced by a bayonet and surrounded by 17 candles, their wicks dipped in blood.
Suspecting the murder may be rooted in ethnic prejudice, Monk finds his inquiries stymied by London's wary Hungarian émigrés. A local pharmacist helps by translating, but can Monk penetrate this tightly knit enclave as more of its members fall victim to identical murders?
The killer, or killers, are well hidden among the ever-growing populace. With the assistance of his wife, former battlefield nurse Hester, Monk races time and the rising tide of terror, as malice and murder echo through London's streets like a clarion of doom.
