Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 2/9/2014

    " This is the seventh book in Perry's Victorian mystery series featuring Inspector Thomas Pitt and his wife, Charlotte. I really like this series and this is a decent installment, but not my favorite by any means. The killer is revealed a little too quickly at the end of the book without much evidence pointing to them. There's a lot of detective work, but I would've appreciated more clues actually leading a path to the resolutio, if that makes any sense. Perry's characters and Victorian London setting are vivid as always, though, and I do love her writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K.V. Witten | 2/8/2014

    " I don't think I've ever disliked anything I've read by Anne Perry. This book is another of her Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels set in Victorian England. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 2/1/2014

    " What I liked about this book is that the secondary main characters were the some of the same from a previous book. What I didn't like was that there was no reference to change in the primary main characters (Thomas & Charlotte). They could have been from one book ago or five books ago and I like for series characters to evolve a bit. What I like about this series in general is the mystery isn't resolved until almost the very last page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/30/2014

    " One of Perry's best. Good mystery and took place in the best and worst areas of London. She does a excellent job of capturing the details of the Victorian era and the lives of upper, middle and lower classes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 1/24/2014

    " This was a dark and very gory at times novel. Not the fun read and intrique I have become accostomed to with Anne Perry. "

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

    " I wish that Peter would spend more time on the denouements, as they always seem as though she's in a tremendous hurry to wrap everything up in ten pages or less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/9/2014

    " another interesting who-done-it by one of my favorite authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 12/13/2013

    " 3.5/4. I looooove a melodramatic Victorian mystery! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susinok | 12/13/2013

    " Real squeaker of an ending! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/10/2013

    " This was a good book. I had no idea who did the murders at all until it was reviled in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 12/8/2013

    " Enjoyed but the ending was a tad undignified for Charlotte as she got into a cat fight! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 11/14/2013

    " Good basic mystery, set in 1880's London. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 11/11/2013

    " I enjoy Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries. Sometimes it takes a little bit for me to get into them, but by the end, I am entralled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lauer | 11/3/2013

    " Kind of slow through the middle, but a very satisfying climactic scene. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica Willyard | 11/3/2013

    " This is one of my favorites from this series. That's because it showed both the good and bad side of society with its often mixed motives and reasons. I felt sorry when I discovered who the murderer was because I liked the character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tori | 10/23/2013

    " Book #7 in the series: I liked how Perry brought back characters from "Callendar Square" in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodee | 9/22/2013

    " Each Book delves father into the slums and prostituion rings of old England. Hopefully they break out of this cycle soon. Good Story and well told. "

    " Enjoyed it. This one wasn't as good as her others in the series, a bit more confusing also. Definitely not a "I could have figured that out" mystery - but fun none the less. "

    " I didn't remember that I'd already read this book when I picked it up a couple of nights ago. After reading the first two chapters, the story seemed too familiar and today I checked an older list. I had indeed read this before, in 2004! "
