Anne Perry

Anne was an international bestselling author, with many appearances on the New York Times bestseller list as well as Livres Hebdo and the Washington Post.  Her books have had critical acclaim; the New York Times called her ‘first rate’, and many reviewers note her deeply-felt interest in ethical issues.  Over 20 million of her books are in print.

She is best known for her two series of crime novels set in the Victorian era; one series features policeman Thomas Pitt and his well-born wife Charlotte, and the other features the private detective William Monk and volatile nurse (and wife) Hester.


More recently, she started a series featuring Thomas and Charlotte Pitt’s son Daniel, beginning with 21 Days (2017).  Her other ongoing series is about photographer/secret agent Elena Standish, set in the 1930s.


Anne won an Edgar award in 2000 with her short story “Heroes”. The main character in the story features in an ambitious five-book series set during the First World War, which were published between 2003 and 2007.


The Times selected her as one of the “100 Masters of Crime”, and in 2015 she was awarded the Premio de Honor Aragón Negro.
