Thoroughly enjoyable. Small-time crook Mickey Parfitt's body is found washed up on the shore. Monk is called in because this was murder. Everybody agrees that Parfitt deserved to die. He ran an establishment on a boat that catered to the elite and their sordid pleasures. He kept young boys captive and used them to perform vile acts. He also blackmailed the men involved. This tied into a previous case and has made Monk and Hester his wife determined to find the killer. They want to stop this by finding out who put up the money and the brains of the operation. Monk and Hester go up against their friend Sir Oliver Rathbone. After clearing the name of a young man they go after the father of Rathbone's wife. Oliver is disappointed in his wife and she in him and they become estranged. Good read.
