Another fantastic offering from the incomparable Anne Perry. Full of twists and turns, but lit up throughout by the beautiful relationship between Thomas Pitt and his wife Charlotte. I especially enjoy the authentic re creation of turn of the century domestic life, and the coolness and wit with which Charlotte approaches her role as the wife of the head of Special Branch. Pitt himself is one of the most admirable fictional characters you could read, from lowly beginnings, he adapts himself to his changing world with grace and intelligence.

As with all Anne Perry Victorian mysteries well written and researched but as per usual at times getting bogged down with far too much description of both surroundings or emotions. Still easy to listen to and good descriptions of the various Victorian established rules. Good narrator despite the main characters all being men you soon forget it is a female reader. Those new to the author may want to start with an earlier book on the series, but it can be listened to as a stand alone story
