About this title
"A detailed period puzzler suffused with atmosphere, emotion, and suspense!"
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.
“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
