Synopsis: Like the great Victorian novelists whose mantle she wears with such distinction, Anne Perry creates a rich and intimate world and fills it with remarkably vivid characters who experience the majesty--and shame--of the British Empire at its brilliant zenith. Now, in Brunswick Gardens, she explores the controversial birth of a philosophy that enflamed fiery debate--and possibly murder.

A century ago, Charles Darwin's revolutionary theory of evolution rocked the civilized world, and the outraged Anglican church went on the warpath against it. In a mansion in London's affluent Brunswick Gardens, the battle is intense, as that most respected clergyman, the Reverend Ramsay Parmenter, is boldly challenged by his beautiful assistant, Unity Bellwood--a "new woman" whose feminism and aggressive Darwinism he finds appalling.

When Unity, three months pregnant, tumbles down the Parmenter staircase to her death, Thomas Pitt, commander of the Bow Street police station, is virtually certain that one of the three deeply devout men in the house committed murder. Could it have been the Reverend Parmenter, his handsome curate, or his Roman Catholic son? Powerful forces demand that the scandalous matter be cleared up immediately. But Pitt and his clever wife, Charlotte, refuse to settle for less than the truth . . . and justice.

Like all Anne Perry's novels, Brunswick Gardens translates great moral issues into deeply moving human dramas. Perhaps the most psychologically penetrating book she has written, it is a distinguished addition to her acclaimed body of work.

From the Publisher:
There are two times a year that I especially love. One is in October when Anne Perry's latest book featuring William Monk is published and the other is in April when her latest book in the Thomas Pitt series is published. I feel lucky that one of my most favorite writers manages to write two books a year.

I have worked with Anne Perry for nine years. She was one of the first authors whose books I publicized when I came to Ballantine, and ever since then my goal has been to get readers throughout the nation to read her work. What makes it especially fun for me is that I am not the only fan in my family. My mother loves to read her as does my sister-in-law and my godmother and my brother's mother-in-law. so there are always plenty of people to talk with about her books. And believe me her books always make you want to talk about a particular issue. Perry is an expert on the Victorian era -- an era that interests many of us. My interest in London began many years ago when I read Charles Dickens. And like Dickens, Perry's books are more than just mysteries each title deals with an important social issue that is still relevant today. It is interesting to me that people's crimes and sins today are really no different from what they were a century ago. The characters in Perry's books -- Monk, Pitt, Charlotte, Hester, Gracie, Emily, Aunt Vespasia, Oliver Rathbone -- are fascinating. It is so fun to go to book signings with Anne and hear fans discuss their favorite characters and wonder what is next for them. The way fans talk about them you would think these characters were real people.
