This is the second in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels. I enjoy this series due to the setting and the interesting married couple, Chalotte and Thomas. Having said that I feel both the first book in the series and this one end very abruptly. I would like to see a little more of the interactions between Inspector Pitt and his wife and less of Charlotte's sister, Emily. I will continue reading the series to see how the characters develop.

In this book I particularly enjoyed the change and growth in the character and self-awareness of General Balantyne. The books are also full of admonishments/wisdom that sometimes come across as preachy but usually are relevant to the situation and can be applied in our time as easily as that of Victorian England. For instance, "What we do not pay for in some way, unfortunately we tend not to regard in its true worth".

The setting, atmosphere and characters interest me enough to continue with the series.
