Corridors of the Night: A William Monk Novel
In this 21st installment of Perry’s successful William Monk series, Hester is filling in at the local hospital for a fellow nurse who has fallen ill. Her expectations of nursing sick men are quickly shattered when she finds three children who are ill but with no satisfactory explanation. A couple days later she is chosen to help Mr. Rand, a chemist, do a strange procedure on a man dying of white blood disease. This requires inserting a needle into his vein and pumping in what suspiciously looks like blood. Hester, being an intelligent and inquisitive woman, figures out where the blood is coming from and refuses to be a party in the deception any longer. When she next wakes up, she realizes she must do all she can to protect herself and the children while helping Mr. Rand keep the patient alive.
While some authors may fizzle out by the time they reach this many installments, Perry is still going strong. In this one, she mixes a medical thriller with science fiction, all set to her historically accurate but fictitious London world. While her books build upon previous events, Perry does very well sharing enough with readers that they won’t feel confused.
