Anne Perry’s spellbinding Victorian mysteries, especially those featuring William Monk, have enthralled readers for a generation. The Plain Dealer calls Monk “a marvelously dark, brooding creation”—and, true to form, this masterpiece is as deceptively deep and twisty as the Thames. As commander of the River Police, Monk is accustomed to violent death, but the mutilated female body found on Limehouse Pier one chilly December morning moves him with horror and pity. The victim’s name is Zenia Gadney. Her waterfront neighbors can tell him little—only that the same unknown gentleman had visited her once a month for many years. She must be a prostitute, but—described as quiet and kempt—she doesn’t appear to be a fallen woman. What sinister secrets could have made poor Zenia worth killing? And why does the government keep interfering in Monk’s investigation? While the public cries out for blood, Monk, his spirited wife, Hester, and their brilliant barrister friend, Oliver Rathbone, search for answers. From dank waterfront alleys to London’s fabulously wealthy West End, the three trail an ice-blooded murderer toward the unbelievable, possibly unprovable truth—and ultimately engage their adversaries in an electric courtroom duel. But unless they can work a miracle, a monumental evil will go unpunished and an innocent person will hang. Anne Perry has never worn her literary colors with greater distinction than in A Sunless Sea, a heart-pounding novel of intrigue and suspense in which Monk is driven to make the hardest decision of his life. Includes an excerpt from Anne Perry’s next William Monk novel, Blind Justice Praise for A Sunless Sea “Anne Perry’s Victorian mysteries are marvels.”—The New York Times Book Review “Unexpected twists and revelations keep the plot humming with typical Anne Perry deception and wit.”—Bookreporter “Much more than a whodunit, this book [is] possibly the author’s best yet.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) From the Trade Paperback edition.
"A powerfully written Florida adventure . . . a compelling glimpse at the mysterious world of cave diving." - The Orlando Sentinel "One of his best novels yet . . . bristles with suspense . . . What makes this novel particularly memorable are the extensive, harrowing descriptions of cave dives, which are riveting enough to terrify experienced divers." -Publishers Weekly "Fans of Clive Cussler will love this thriller." - Library Journal. "White-knuckle diving scenes, constant action." - Kirkus Reviews "Tiller is a character who grows on the reader . . . As usual, Poyer provides a smashing climax, this one fraught with danger from man and nature." - Jacksonville Times-Union "There can be no better writer of modern sea adventure around today." - Clive Cussler "Claustrophobics beware! David Poyer's suspenseful cave-diving novel, DOWN TO A SUNLESS SEA, takes readers into water crevices, submerged limestone tunnels, cramped wormholes and subterranean hell holes that give suffocation new meaning . . . Vivid, believable descriptions . . .We can get the fear and adrenaline of cave-diving without ever leaving the dry safety of our favorite comfy chairs." - Tallahassee Sun Democrat Welcome to the most dangerous sport on earth: where cave divers step into murky Florida ponds and end up hundreds of feet below the ground, threading through the narrow passages of Swiss-cheese-like rock formations, heading down tunnels that may open into caverns of breathtaking beauty, or else suddenly collapse in rockfalls that crush out their air and their lives. Open-water diver and ex-con Tiller Galloway has come to this watery underworld to find out why an old friend died young - and take one last shot at being a father, a lover, and a friend. But with a woman opening up her heart, and a deadly conspiracy closing in around him, Galloway must navigate between lies told aboveground and truths hidden in the depths . . . where a violent battle is about to explode. Combining the knife-edged action of Clive Cussler with the heart stopping storytelling skill of John D. MacDonald, USA Today-bestselling Dave Poyer continues to be one of American's most popular and remarkable thriller writers . . . and a master of underwater suspense. "A ripping good read! Poyer raises the bar with this one. The cave-diving scenes are riveting, claustrophobic, terrifying, and beautiful." - Booklist
