A riveting new Thomas and Charlotte Pitt novel, in which Anne Perry again proves her mastery of the people, the mores, and the politics of the Victorian era she has made her own. A general election is approaching and Thomas is called to monitor the bitter struggle for one crucial London seat.

The Tory candidate is Charles Voisey, ruthless Number One of the Inner Circle and old enemy of Pitt. His Liberal opponent is Aubrey Serracold, whose wife, Rose, is passionately committed to a socialist agenda and a liability to Serracold as she is immersed in spiritualism. Rose is one of the three participants in a late-night seance held by clairvoyant Maude Lamont, which becomes notorious when Madame Lamont's brutally murdered body is found the next morning. To Pitt's heavy burdens is now added the investigation of this baffling crime.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 2/20/2014

    " Again, I'm not really a fan of mysteries, but I chose this book anyway because I needed something safe to listen to during a long drive. It was better than A River in the Sky, but maybe because it wasn't as long. It is also from in a series where I haven't read the previous books, but it did keep my interest better though. I guess I like Anne Perry better than Elizabeth Peters and Thomas Pitt more than Amelia Peabody. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geneve | 2/12/2014

    " Best so far! I really love these books, and now that there is a conspiracy thread that continues from book to book, they are better than ever. This one had the most suspense so far, the most loyalty, and I found myself more attached to the characters than I have before. But a big *Note* - if you are not reading the series in order, I would read at least The Whitechapel Conspiracy before this one to give you the background you need. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sooze | 2/8/2014

    " This is the first book I've read in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series. Knowledge of previous events is not required but I imagine I would have given the book a higher rating. I was a little lost when it came to the Inner Circle and the characters' previous interactions. Set in Victorian England, the culture and politics will be interesting enough for me to read other books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 bookczuk | 2/2/2014

    " Used ot really like this author, who has done two series (at least) of mysteries. This was the more cutesy series. I like the other one (with Monk) better. More gutsy. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Athena | 1/15/2014

    " This is one of the most dull books I have ever read by Anne Perry. The Monk series are much more interesting. When a medium Maude Lamont is found dead in her home, asphyxiated by cheesecloth and egg white, the last three people that attended the seance the night before are all suspected of murdering her. One of the guests is the wife of a political candidate and the elections are coming up, so there is a potential risk for his position. Unfortunately, there is no supernatural elements at work here, this novel is more of political thriller. The murder is described graphically, and it's about the most suspenseful aspect of the story, in my opinion. The detail is very realistic; the actvities, the fashion, the vocabulary,everything helps put the reader into the time and era. This plot could have been much better, I'll stick to the Monk series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 1/5/2014

    " I wouldn't have thought I would enjoy a Victorian mystery featuring politics and spiritualism...but I really did. This is the second I've read in the series, and so far the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lavezzij | 12/26/2013

    " I have some bias about Ms. Perrys books, and just always like them, especially have enjoyed the manners and times of the characters, complete with the rules for living during those times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Dolan | 12/23/2013

    " Bit too political for me - found it a slower read than usual for Anne Perry. Good page-turning ending though. And I'm sure a very good insight into the politics of the time, if you like that sort of thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LeslieVA | 12/16/2013

    " This is the first in the Pitt series that I have really enjoyed in a while. Perry was able to succeed again at tying in the inner circle plot line with an a mystery that one could follow and make sense of. "

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

    " I had hoped she'd killed off the Inner Circle plot device a couple of novels ago, but no such luck. It's back with a vengeance, and Charlotte plays almost no role in this one. One of my least favorite of the Pitts series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 12/9/2013

    " Not that impressed overall - but this book held a private gem for me uncovered at a very difficult time. I'm willing to give Ms. Perry another chance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 11/27/2013

    " another good read from Anne Perry. She never disappoints for a good story with an unsuspected ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 11/3/2013

    " If you like historical fiction with a mystery involved, these are fun, easy reads. I read one after another and really enjoyed all of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phyllis | 10/22/2013

    " Perry at her best! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 7/16/2013

    " This book was harder for me to read because of the danger and sadness of the characters for most of the book...however, the ending took a twist and the last 75 pages were very exciting! Couldn't put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 6/7/2013

    " Thomas Pitt is yanked away from Bow Street again, this time to prevent dirty tricks by a ruthless republican determined to win a place in Parliament. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary G. | 1/24/2013

    " a very interesting thomas and charlotte pitt story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 11/25/2012

    " Typical enjoyable Anne Perry mystery. Pitt's new boss isn't doing anything for me. Am I supposed to like him or not? Is he a good guy or not? The danger to Pitt's family did add some excitement. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Lauer | 10/22/2012

    " I don't mind this one, per se. It's downgraded because of the Inner Circle. Not a fan of that line. Too bad I have several more in my future as I continue on my plan or reading them ALL in a row. 8-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 5/21/2012

    " Perry brings the late Victorian period alive - its society, morals, fashions, food, and politics- and that is a real gift to the reader, or in my case, listener. And there's a crime or two for Thomas Pitt to solve as well! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tejus | 3/28/2012

    " My first Anne Perry book. I like mysteries set in England and this one did not disappoint me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 1/9/2012

    " This entry in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series includes a focus on spiritualism and seances as well as a Parliamentary general election. I liked it, but Charlotte was mostly out of the story and I like her interaction with Thomas, so that was a bit of a let down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 9/28/2011

    " An enjoyable book in the series. I liked that this one was a bit suspenseful, as Charlotte and the children were in some danger. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue Jellum | 4/26/2011

    " Not her best, I think she is overdoing the inner circle story. And if Voisey is so twisted, he needs to get what is coming to him. Pretty ridiculous that he and his sister can murder an innocent man, and the authorities know it, with no repercussions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Fillmore | 3/29/2011
