Amazon Review...

In this exhilarating series debut, police detective William Monk must solve the mystery of his own past.
 
His name, they tell him, is William Monk, and he is a London police detective. But the accident that felled him has left him with only half a life; his memory and his entire past have vanished. As he tries to hide the truth, Monk returns to work and is assigned to investigate the brutal murder of a Crimean War hero and man about town. Which makes Monk's efforts doubly difficult, since he's forgotten his professional skills along with everything else.


Without realizing this was such a large series I happened to read "Revenge in a Cold  River" and enjoyed. Especially liking the flawed main character, William Monk.
So I searched and found the first book of the very long series (you do not have to read them all to enjoy them).  ... and I loved it!  A super read with questions in your mind at all times!  Set back in Victorian London, I find it enjoyable to read mysteries that don't have modern means to help them solve the murders!  I do, however, wish some of them were in other parts of England!

This book was so enjoyed I found a used copy on Amazon that is book number 2.  Monk leaves many questions about himself that I need finding out... let alone, another mystery!

I've read a few books by Anne Perry, I especially like the Christmas books she writes every year... always a crime in Victorian times.
