BOOKLIST
When George March, a womanizing aristocrat, is found dead over his morning coffee, his wife Emily is accused of murder. But Emily's sister is none other than the indomitable Charlotte Pitt. Together, she and her husband, Inspector Thomas Pitt, take on the seemingly irreproachable March clan--and uncover an insidious web of corruption and depravity that leads them from the elegant Crescent town house to the hideous London slumbs, from genteel society to murder--again.

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
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly:

Perry's Victorian sleuths Inspector Thomas Pitt and his redoubtable wife Charlotte returnafter Death in the Devil's Acre and Bluegate Fieldsto poke holes in the stiff fabric of London's high society. While Thomas works on a case involving a murdered woman whose body has been dismembered and left in packages around the city, Charlotte's brother-in-law George is poisoned at the home of his cousin's family on Cardington Crescent. George had been suffering an infatuation for his cousin's wife Sybilla, and the family would like to squelch the suggestion of scandal by leaving the crime unsolved, allowing their circle to believe the poison was administered by his wife Emily Charlotte's sister in a fit of jealousy. Charlotte arrives at Cardington Crescent to clear Emily's name and while she's there, Sybilla is also murdered, strangled with her own long, lovely hair. Thomas and Charlotte work at the mysteries, each cutting through layers of class structure to arrive at the same sordid point, where incest and child neglect intersect. Perry brings the era to life not just by period detail, but with sure-handed characterization and compelling, timeless plot.
