While flower sellers, costermongers, shopkeepers, and hansom drivers ply their trades, the London police watch over all. Or so people believe.... Early one morning, Thomas Pitt, dauntless mainstay of the Special Branch, is summoned to Long Spoon Lane, where anarchists are plotting an attack. Bombs explode, destroying the homes of many poor people. After a chase, two of the culprits are captured and the leader is shot...but by whom?

As Pitt delves into the case, he finds that there is more to the terrorism than the destructive gestures of misguided idealists. The police are running a lucrative protection racket, and clues suggest that Inspector Wetron of Bow Street is the mastermind. As the shadowy leader of the Inner Circle, Wetron is using his influence with the press to whip up fears of more attacks - and to rush a bill through Parliament that would severely curtail civil liberties. This would make him the most powerful man in the country.

To defeat Wetron, Pitt finds that he must run in harness with his old enemy, Sir Charles Voisey, and the unlikely allies are joined by Pitt's clever wife, Charlotte, and her great aunt, Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould. Can they prevail? As they strive to prevent future destruction, nothing less than the fate of the British Empire hangs in precarious balance.

Anne Perry's best -selling Victorian novels offer listeners an elixir as addictively rich as Devonshire cream and English ale - enticing millions into a literary world almost as real as the original. Download and start listening now!

    " Missed this one in the series. Currently reading and enjoying it. "

    " Very engrossing. When reading some of the books in the middle of the series I was concerned that they were getting a little formulaic, but the last few--including this one--are clever and have interesting developments in the main characters' lives. "

    " This book had some intrigue carried over from other books about the Inner Circle in England. They were the upper crust supposedly doing kind and charitable things but actually making things work to their advantage. Some times even making sure people were out of the way if they didn't suit the purposes of the Inner Circle. Thomas Pitt was in danger quite a bit of the time. "

    " I didn't like this as much as her older books. I used to read all of them as soon as they came out. But it has been awhile since I've read any. I think I liked the earlier books because the plots weren't as convoluted. I don't like it when there are too many characters and I feel like I need a scorecard to remember who is who. I also liked the earlier stories when Charlotte and Emily would do much of the investigating. This was good I'm not eager to jump to the next one. "
