About this title:
When a distinguished judge dies of opium poisoning, the crucifixion five years before of Kingsley Blaine is brought back into the public eye, and it is screaming for revenge. The police had arrested a Jewish actor, who was soon condemend to hang.
Police Inspector Thomas Pitt, investigating the judge's death, is drawn into the sensational murder, because it appears the judge was about to reopen the earlier case. He receives curiously little help from his colleagues on the force, but his wife, Charlotte, gleans from her social engagements startling insights into the women in both cases. And slowly both Thomas and Charlotte begin to reach the same sinister and deeply dangerous truth....

From the Paperback edition.
From AudioFile: Another case begins for Inspector and Charlotte Pitt, Perry's Victorian detectives, as a distinguished jurist dies, poisoned, while attending the theater. The Pitts happen to be in the audience. Much of the delight of the Pitt mysteries lies in the period detail, here especially with the colorful world of the London theater. Terrence Hardiman does a particularly fine job with atmosphere and characterization. He sounds oh so "Masterpiece Theater"--quite apropos for a book that has already seen its way to PBS.
