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!

The gentleman tied to the lamppost on Westminster Bridge is most elegantly attired - fresh boutonniere, silk hat, white evening scarf - and he is quite, quite dead, as a result of his thoroughly cut throat.

Why should anyone kill Sir Lockwood Hamilton, that kindest of family men and most conscientious member of Parliament? Before Inspector Thomas Pitt can even speculate on the reasons, a colleague of Sir Lockwood's meets the same fate in the same spot.

Public indignation is boundless, and clever Charlotte Pitt, Thomas's well-born wife, can't resist helping her hard-pressed husband, scouting society's drawing rooms for clues to these appalling crimes. Meanwhile, the Westminster Bridge Cutthroat stalks still another victim... (from back cover)
