Funeral in Blue

Thanks a lot, well-chilled. Book arrived today.
This was the first Anne Perry novel I ever read and I liked it. The setting is Victorian London (1860's) with a brief visit to Vienna. Main characters are private investigator William Monk and his nurse wife Hester. Together they try to solve a case that involves both Hester's family and friends.
Two women have been strangled in an artist's studio. One of them is a wife of Hester's colleague Dr. Kristian Beck, who becomes the prime suspect. The Monk couple seek the proof of Kristian's innocence. Their search leads them into the revolutionary past Dr. Beck and his wife and many secrets are revealed.
I liked the plot but even more I liked the way Anne Perry had combined history, her story and her characters. I loved to read how these people conducted themselves in time of crises. Perry described they ways of life in very interesting way.
Tomorrow I'll send the book to AspenYard who accepted my offer on Finnish forum earlier today.

Just had to pick up the book at local BC Christmas meet-up! I've read another Perry and quite liked it, so have to give this a try...

A slight disappointment that made me yawn instead of keeping me glued to the pages. I'm not giving up on Anne Perry though.
