Another excellent Anne Perry mystery. I never get tired of her! If you're looking for a new author, and you like murder mysteries, you can never go wrong with Anne Perry. I'm no prude, and a few curse words won't make me quit an author, but it is so refreshing to read a good, intelligently written novel that doesn't need cursing in the dialogue, or explicit descriptions of gore to describe a murder. I also really like the time period that Anne Perry's books are set in, when telephones were a new invention, but streetlamps were still gaslit, when Oscar Wilde was a popular author and ladies still went 'visiting.' I would have liked to have lived in that period, and following Thomas and Charlotte Pitt almost makes me feel I'm there!
