A Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mystery.If you like this author,you will like this book.
I liked this book because she incorporated some of the Irish and English hatred into her narrative. She has written better books but this one is still good. I don't agree with the 2 1/2* rating, I would give it a 3 to 3 1/2.
I love Anne Perry's books, but this is one of her worst. By page 16 I was thoroughly confused by the large cast of characters and completely disinterested in the outcome of the book.
I love books by Anne Perry, and this series about Thomas, a policeman, and Charlotte Pitt, his wife are really great! She creates lots of suspense and just enough light humor to keep me turning the pages one by one!!
"Ashworth Hall" almost exactly fits the formula 'closed door' Victorian murder mystery mold (hey, there's even a butler)... In 1890, a group of Irish leaders, their wives and servants are meeting for a conference at a British manor house to address the "Irish Problem." First, the politician hosting the conference is found murdered... but is the motive political or personal? More literary in style than say, Amanda Quick, book, but still a basic whodunnit.
