The Cater Street Hangman is the first of Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries. Set in the Victorian era, it is an elegant and complex mystery full of well-drawn characters and rich period detail. When a maid in the upper class Ellison household is strangled, Inspector Pitt is called in to investigate. He finds a world ruled by strict manners and social customs, where the inhabitants of the Ellison's neighborhood appear to be more outraged by the thought of scandal than they are by murder. Inspector Pitt finds a most unlikely ally in Charlotte, the Ellison's spirited daughter. But as the murders continue, Charlotte and Pitt find themselves drawn together by more than the investigation.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy Jensen | 2/16/2014

    " Anne Perry effectively writes within the context of Victorian England. I like stepping into another day and time. This is a quick and light read. I am going to look for the A&E movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathania Ma | 1/26/2014

    " The case itself is okay though I think it becomes easy to guess who dun it. Most problematic though is the romance part. It's a bit too abrupt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trudi | 1/25/2014

    " The first in a series of mysteries with Thomas and Charlotte Pitt. Someone is killing young women in Cater Street in London. When Thomas Pitt investigates the murders, he solves the mystery and meets his future wife, Charlotte. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 1/14/2014

    " If you love mysteries this is great! I really didn't know 'who dunnit' until the last page. This is the first book of the Charlotte Pitt series. Highly recommend the entire series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/13/2014

    " Victorian murder mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randie | 12/24/2013

    " I really like thomas and charlotte "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/24/2013

    " Short and sweet with all the right elements for a murder mystery. I know this is the first book in a series so i am looking forward to getting to know the main characters better as their lives progress. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abbi | 12/12/2013

    " Great quick read for entertainment, but lacked the character development that I enjoy most in books. Also, the storyline felt choppy and the ending abrupt to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 11/25/2013

    " Good book-I give it a 3.5 star rating. The ending was not what I expected and I think that is why I gave it a 4. I did find myself growing sleepy every couple of pages when reading it; however, it was easy to pick right back up in the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 11/21/2013

    " I found this book hard to get through, very slow paced, I had the killer figured out way ahead of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 11/17/2013

    " Really enjoyed, great audiobook "

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

    " Excellent if you want an intriguing mystery novel that requires you to think about the people to whom crime happens. Some mystery novels focus on the detective or police team and their personalities. This book was from the victim's sister's point of view. Made me think a bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 3/23/2013

    " another good detective series (found this in the Novgorod library of all places, turns out my sister has the whole collection!) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 7/26/2012

    " An interesting start to the series, but I'm not wild about the "been there, done that" motivation for the villain's crimes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/28/2012

    " ... So glad you liked it Rachel! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 10/7/2011

    " the first in the charlotte and Thomas Pitt series. I've read several of this series, yet could not find the first one in the series. Even with knowledge of the plot, I was not prepared for the ending. Another enjoyable read from Anne Perry. "

    " I don't normally listen to a book all in one sitting, but I did with this one. Excellent Victorian mystery and well narrated by Davinia Porter. "

    " The Cater Street Hangman is the first in Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, and the best. It has interesting characters and an intriguing plot (despite unrealistic twists and turns). I enjoy the historical details in this series and in Perry's William Monk series. "
