A young bridegroom enlists private investigator William Monk to track down his fiancee, Miriam Gardiner, who disappeared suddenly from a party at a luxurious Bayswater mansion. Monk soon finds the coach in which Miriam fled and, nearby, the murdered body of the coachman, but there is no trace of the young passenger. What strange compulsion could have driven the beautiful widow to abandon the prospect of a loving marriage and financial abundance? Monk and clever nurse Hester Latterly, themselves now newlyweds, desperately pursue the elusive truth--and an unknown killer whose malign brilliance they have scarcely begun to fathom.

Many good aspects to this overly long book. Perry's excellent characterizations show us Monk and Hester adjusting to marriage, and Rathbone adjusting to having to watch their happiness. The mystery seems unsolvable, with a fiance suddenly running away, then refusing to explain why, or how or why the coachman ended up murdered. A side plot ends up putting two women in the dock, with an ending that I thought I'd guessed, but was still quite a surprise.

The author is on her "A-game" in this one! I did guess the outcome, but still kept reading because I couldn't believe it. A real page-turner.

As ever, the story held me from page 1 to almost the last page.

A very very good mystery You won't know who did it. Anne Perry is a wonderful writer that she holds the readers' attention until the last.
