Defend and Betray

Original Publication Date, 1992; Audible publication date September 28, 2009 by Recorded Books. Defend and Betray

Defend and Betray by Anne Perry is the 3rd in the William Monk Series. See Goodreads and other sources for the synopsis.

Because of it’s older publication date, this book just gets a brief mention on the Brown Booknook, rather than a full review on the Brown Bookloft. I listened to the audio version through Audible.com. It’s sometimes difficult to review books when I listen to them because I use audio books to combat bouts of insomnia. Sometimes I’m up listening for hours while other times I fall asleep within minutes. This means that despite “rewinding” frequently, I’ll miss patches.

I figured out the motive for the murder fairly early into the story, but I was completely enthralled by the proof and details during the courtroom proceedings.
