Anne Perry's superb New York Times bestselling novels set in the glorious reign of Victoria are loved by readers far and wide. Now, with this new Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mystery, Perry returns us to that charmed era, when wealth and power rule but where, alas, poisonous corruption lies coiled in the heart of the empire.
Britain is now in an arms race with other European powers. When the mutilated corpse of a young servant, Kitty Ryder, shows up, Thomas Pitt is called in, since Kitty's employer was the rich and powerful Dudley Kynaston. It looks as if he was being blackmailed into giving naval secrets to a foreign power. When other murders occur, and Pitt struggles with the investigation, his wife Charlotte and her sister Emily start their own inquiries, as they used to together in previous books. Emily's husband has had a promotion in the government and is now working with Kynaston. Together they can reach parts of society and gain information that event Pitt can't. Europe might ignite into a world war, if they can't.
None of her books have ever been out of print, and they have received critical acclaim and huge popular success: over 26 million books are in print world-wide. Her books have appeared on bestseller lists in a number of foreign countries, where she has also had excellent reviews. The Times selected her as one of the 20th Century's "100 Masters of Crime."
