As commander of the River Police, William Monk has encountered more than his fair share of mysterious dead bodies washed ashore. So when the corpse of an very active petty thief turns up, many--including William's wife, Hester--cannot understand why he even bothers investigating. But the way the murder was committed catches Monk's eye, and soon he is in up to his ears in a confounding mystery. ACCEPTABLE LOSS is Anne Perry at her best, and fans of her Victorian series will not be disappointed.
