Bluegate Fields: A Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Novel (Mortalis) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspector Thomas Pitt is shocked. The body of a boy, clearly from the upper classes, has been found in the filthy sewers of Bluegate Fields, one of Londons most dangerous slums. Whats more, the unfortunate boy had been violated before he was murdered. So vile a case is hardly a topic for drawing-room conversation.

But when the Waybournes, the boys family, refuse to answer the polices questions, Inspector Pitt begins to wonder what secrets they are trying to hide. Pitts wife and helpmeet, Charlotte, is determined to find out-even if it means tearing down the façades of an oh-so-proper family.

Synopsis:

His wife and helpmeet, Charlotte, is determined to find out--even it if means tearing down the facades of an oh-so-proper family....

The period detail remains fascinating, and Perry's] grasp of Victorian character and conscience still astonishes.
