Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the womanizing aristocrat George March is found dead over his morning coffee, the immediate concern of his shocked Cardington Crescent household is quieting the scandal as discreetly—and quickly—as possible. Unfortunately for March’s wife, Emily, that means accusing her of the murder. But the family does not take into account Emily’s beloved sister, who is none other than the indomitable Charlotte Pitt. Together, Charlotte and her husband, police inspector Thomas Pitt, take on the seemingly irreproachable, upper-crust March clan and uncover an insidious web of corruption and depravity that leads them from the elegant Crescent town house to the hideous London slums, and from genteel society to murder—again.

Synopsis:

"A detailed period puzzler suffused with atmosphere, emotion, and suspense!"

About the Author

“A detailed period puzzler suffused with atmosphere, emotion, and suspense.”—Booklist

“Pitt’s compassion and Charlotte’s cleverness make them compatible sleuths, as well as extremely congenial. . . . Perry has the great gift of making it all seem immediate and very much alive.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

“As usual, Anne Perry’s evocation of the Victorian scene—with its great disparity between rich and poor, pretense and reality—is excellent.”—The San Diego Union-Tribune

 

“Perry brings the era to life not just by period detail, but with sure-handed characterization and compelling, timeless plot.”—Publishers Weekly

 

“[A] rewarding series.”—The New York Times Book Review
