Summary

The 31st novel in the popular Victorian crime series featuring Thomas and Charlotte Pitt.
Thomas Pitt arrives at a devastating bombing in Lancaster Gate to find two policemen dead and three more gravely wounded. London's anarchists are blamed, but as Pitt and Inspector Tellman investigate they find it looks increasingly like a personal vendetta against those particular men. Did they lie about a drugs raid that went fatally wrong and let an innocent man hang?
The idea of police dishonesty cuts Tellman to the quick - he joined the force to protect society, not exploit it. But he must uncover the truth, however much he wants to resist the signs of blackmail and corruption. With the threat of further bombings and their superiors pushing for a quick resolution, Pitt and Tellman find their every move scrutinised and their own lives suddenly at risk....
Treachery at Lancaster Gate is the exceptional new historical thriller from the master of Victorian crime.

brilliant

As usual, a wonderful and credible account of the ramifications surrounding Victorian policing and politics. I found it hard to put down (perhaps I should say turn off). Exciting and dramatic, it addresses what would have been almost unthinkable to the public in those days, police corruption. Add this to an account of opium addiction in a young man of gentle birth, and you have a cracker of a book. Its a matter of personal choice, but I did not care for the narration.. I found the voice too light, and the passages where the narrator read words from the female characters unconvincing and a little irritating.

As brilliant as ever!

One never tires of the twists and turns of story; sometimes joyful, at other times heartbreaking, but always thrilling! A compelling story with all ends tied neatly up.
