The Prince of Wales has asked four wealthy entrepreneurs and their elegant wives to the palace to discuss a fantastic idea: the construction of a 6,000-mile railroad that would stretch the full length of Africa. But alas, the prince's gathering proves disastrous when the mutilated body of a prostitute hired for a late-night frolic (after the wives have retired to bed) turns up among the queen's monogrammed sheets in a palace linen closet.

With great haste, Thomas Pitt, brilliant mainstay of Special Services, is summoned to resolve the crisis. The Pitts' cockney maid, Gracie, is also recruited - to pose as a palace servant and listen in on the guests' conversations, scan their bedrooms, and scrutinize their troubled faces for clues to hidden rivalries and attachments that could have led to murder.

If Pitt and Gracie fail to find out who brutally murdered the young woman - as seems increasingly likely - Pitt's career will be over, and the scandal may just cause the monarchy to fall.

With a cast of wonderful characters, among them the gentle Princess of Wales, and a twisting plot that takes us into the hidden world of the royal family, Anne Perry probes deeply the hearts of men and women ensnared by their emotions. Download and start listening now!

    " Another fine mess for Thomas Pitt and the Special Branch. I thought the book really highlighted the differences between the classes and how they were treated. And I enjoyed seeing Gracie have a bigger role in solving the mystery, although I missed Charlotte's touch. Anne Perry continues to amuse and amaze me. "

    " This book kinda frustrated me!!! I like the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt characters; this is the second book in the series I've read. Charlotte did not appear in the book, only in Thomas' musings. The plot here is interesting and rather byzantine; the problem for me lies in the endless mental gyrations of the characters, esp. the women. I hated the endless questions that churned through the minds of the female characters: what if this? what did that mean? why did someone have a particular facial expression? And on and on ad nauseum. Whole paragraphs, and chapters, seemed to me to be nothing but these endless, and somewhat silly, questions. OK, the reader gets it: there are multiple nuances of speech, dress, and social interchange that in Victorian society, especially in the upper levels, that (thankfully) we don't have to worry about today. Can we move on with the story, please? "

    " This was an interesting murder mystery because of the setting and time, but the most enjoyable thing about this series is the husband/wife relationship and Charlotte wasn't able to assist in this one. "

    " Anne Perry - Always a good read! Suspected killer early on but not why killing occurred. "
