I'd heard Anne Perry's name mentioned over the years as an author to try, and I would have tried her work sooner if I'd known quite how wonderful it was!

This is the first of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt stories - which give a little away as in this book Thomas and Charlotte first meet ;).

Great murder mystery, fabulously unique characters, gorgeous setting in Victorian London, and an extremely dry wit. There is both a lightness of touch and a depth of style in this book.

It was first released in 1979 and you wouldn't know it for a second. Delightful, exciting, and just great reading. Adored it and I can assure you I'll be back for more!
