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, the 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 wellborn 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 another victim.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Indee | 2/17/2014

    " The murders are grisly and the book gives a good insight in to the social and political views of women's suffrage in Victorian England. But all in all the pace of the story becomes very slow towards the middle and picks up only towards the very end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/6/2014

    " Tenth Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri Pre | 1/31/2014

    " I'm fascinated by the social issues that Anne Perry brings up in her books. It makes me realize just how lucky we are to be living now and not back then. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 1/29/2014

    " Almost stopped reading here -- women's suffrage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Briansmom | 1/27/2014

    " Another good book in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luan | 1/24/2014

    " Perry is a master of craft. So the story is the thing. I believe she left too many red herrings in this story and never tied them up successfully. And the murderer was unsatisfactory too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/19/2014

    " Lots of good info on Women's rights (or lack there of) during the 1880's. This was a page turner even if the ending was a little to sappy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cynthisa | 1/15/2014

    " My 2003 Book Log note for this novel reads, "Dumb Victorian mystery." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mira | 1/13/2014

    " It's not a conventional detective tale, but would be fab for those interested in historic London. I found it very slow paced and a little dull "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/9/2014

    " Not One of the best in this series, but still a good book "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alison | 12/9/2013

    " Eff this book in the A. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sydnee | 12/2/2013

    " This is my favorite of all of Anne Perry's books. I love a mystery with a bit of class and Anne Perry's historical setting in Victorian London does the trick! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darby | 12/1/2013

    " The story was too repetative for me, but I did enjoy the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 6/6/2013

    " Perry's Victorian-era mysteries are interesting as much for the insight into the English class system of the time as for the engaging characters and the original plot twists. This is one of several featuring a young woman of the upper class who marries a mere, lowly police detective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 5/13/2013

    " I did not care for this book as much as others that I have read by this author. The plot moved very slow for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 12/8/2012

    " Good story as always even though they are written to a formula. It's still fun to learn more about those very different times. Glad I live now I would never have survived all the rules and etiquet of those days!! I would have been a rebel "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 7/28/2012

    " I listened to this book mainly because of the reader, Daviana Porter the reader for Diana Gabaldon's voyger series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicky | 1/27/2012

    " I am currently listening to this. Davina Porter is the reader and she's exceptional. I've never read Anne Perry. I am enjoying this historical fiction mystery, especially because the reader is great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha Johnson | 8/14/2011

    " l like historical fiction that contains a mystery to it. Fun to read and imagine although it was rather rainy, bloody, and exhausting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 8/5/2011

    " This is where Perry leaves her early tendency towards rushed conclusions behind, but still struggles with writing a villain that isn't visible from the next time zone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 7/1/2011

    " A Victorian political mystery in which members of Parliament bite the dust. Most anything by Perry is fine stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 6/12/2009

    " Interesting twist at the end that alludes to Mormon's ... never quite says what the religion is but gives an interesting perspective of the time period and perceptions of the church. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/26/2009

    " I was interested in this book because the Mormon church has a silouette role in it. "
