Was William Monk betrayed by his own men?
Businessman Harry Exeter asks the Thames River Police to help him navigate Jacob’s Island, a creepy mass of decrepit buildings where he will hand off a large sum of money in exchange for his kidnapped wife. But when they arrive, Commander William Monk and five of his best men are attacked from all sides. Who could have given away their plans—and why would anyone want to harm Kate Exeter?
As Monk follows leads from Kate’s worried cousin and a crafty bank clerk, it seems one of his own men has betrayed him. Delving into their pasts, he realizes how little he knows about the people he works with, including his right-hand man, John Hooper. Monk must risk his own safety to solve the case—and learn where his men’s loyalty really lies.
