Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Superintendent Thomas Pitt, the sight of the dead man riding the morning tide of the Thames is unforgettable. The corpse lies in a battered punt drifting through the early mist, clad in a torn green gown and bestrewn with flowers. Pitt’s determined search for answers to the victim’s identity leads him deep into London’s bohemia—to the theatre where beautiful Cecily Antrim is outraging society with her bold portrayal of a modern woman, and into studios where masters of light and shadow are experimenting with the fascinating new art of photography. But only Pitt’s masterly investigative skills enable him to identify the wildfire passions raging through this tragedy of good and evil, to hunt down the guilty and protect the innocent.

About the Author

Among Anne Perry's other novels featuring Thomas and Charlotte Pitt are The Whitechapel Conspiracy, Bedford Square, Brunswick Gardens, Ashworth Hall, Traitors Gate, and The Hyde Park Headsman. She also writes the popular novels featuring Victorian private investigator William Monk--among them Slaves of Obsession, The Twisted Root, A Breach of Promise, The Silent Cry, and Weighed in the Balance. "Her grasp of Victorian character and conscience still astonishes," said the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Hundreds of thousands of readers in Europe and America agree.

Anne Perry lives in Scotland.
