The Sins of the Wolf (William Monk, #5

The Sins of the Wolf (William Monk, #5)The Sins of the Wolf by Anne Perry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Hester Latterly is offered a job to accompany an elderly lady on a railway journey from Scotland to London it seems like a pleasant journey and an opportunity to see a part of the country she has not been in before. Her only real duty is to administer her patient's heart medicine. When her patient turns up dead of a double dose of the medicine, Hester is arrested and charged with her murder.

She turns to Oliver Rathbone to defend her and William Monk to find out who actually murdered the woman and why, but is dismayed to find out that Oliver cannot represent her in Scotland. Always her champion, he hires the best lawyer in Scotland and comes there to help him defend Hester. William is also there by her side and the two manage to nearly get killed before the murderer is unvailed.

In this book, the relationship between Hester and Monk and Rathbone heats up and takes a leap forward, but will it be permanent or will things go back to normal after the strong emotions of the case are over?
