The man who lies bleeding to death in a London brickyard is no ordinary drifter but a secret informant prepared to divulge details of a potentially devastating international plot against the British government. Special Branch officer Thomas Pitt, hastening to rendezvous with him, arrives a second too late, preceded by a knife-wielding assassin. As the mortally wounded man's life slips away, so too does the information Pitt desperately needs. The killer in turn flees on an erratic course that leads Pitt in wild pursuit, from London's cobblestone streets to picturesque St. Malo on the French coast.

Meanwhile, Pitt's supervisor, the formidable Victor Narraway, finds himself accused of embezzling government funds. With Pitt incommunicado in France, Narraway turns to Pitt's clever wife, Charlotte, for help. The man who badmouthed Narraway and ruined his career with innuendo can be found in Ireland - so Charlotte agrees to pose as Narraway's sister and accompany him to Dublin to investigate. But unknown to Pitt and Narraway, a shadowy plotter is setting a trap that, once sprung, could destroy not just reputations but the British empire itself.

Listener Opinions

    " Anne Perry's series featuring Thomas and Charlotte Pitt has been a favorite of mine for years. This one, her first in three years, contained more excitement than usual, and I enjoyed it very much. The relationship between the Pitts, the descriptions of Dublin, London, and Paris in the time of Britain's Queen Victoria, and the intrigue of the mystery with its many twists all kept me reading furiously. So good to spend time with old friends again! "

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

    " This was a page-turner, but the dual stories of Thomas and Charlotte's parallel adventures meant that both mysteries were drawn more sketchily than usual for Perry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 1/31/2014

    " Anne Perry just keeps delivering. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penny | 1/27/2014

    " Another decent entry to the Thomas/Charlotte Pitt series - the 26th, I believe, and I've read them all. Still enjoy reading the series, especially all the details of Victorian life, but I do wish we could go back to the couple just solving regular! murders instead of all the political intrigue and conspiracies of the last few books in this series, and also in the Monk and WWI series. Starting to seem like Ms. Perry is just a tad obsessed with anarchists and evil cabals of powerful men around every corner. I think I prefer a good old stabbing, shooting or strangling for personal reasons in my mysteries! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Mather | 1/21/2014

    " Good read. Ending is less contrived than some of her recent novels. "

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

    " Another book in the Charlotte & Thomas Pitt mystery series. As a special agent with the Special Branch service Thomas is tracking a potential terrorist to France. Meanwhile, his boss has been accused of theft and been relieved of his position. Charlotte steps in to help clear his name. This mystery offers an interesting view of the political and social upheavals happening at this time in history, the latter years of the Victorian era. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christianne | 1/13/2014

    " Totally outrageous plot but I love period mysteries and enjoyed myself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia Cluthe | 12/7/2013

    " well written - great mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary A. | 12/1/2013

    " Charlotte and Thomas Pitt are back and they save not only England but Queen Victoria. A good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia | 11/15/2013

    " The Pitts got themselves into a predicament separately. Amazing how things got figured out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geneve | 11/12/2013

    " I couldn't wait to read this book and devoured it once I tracked it down. I have missed the world of Thomas and Charlotte Pitt and was so happy to be immersed in it again. I loved it, as always, and I am impressed with the integrity and honor that the characters showed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 10/24/2013

    " I like Anne Perry's mysteries and was happy to see she had Charlotte and Thomas back. It's been awhile. This one is just as good as her others, and I hope she keeps up the good work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Anderson | 10/22/2013

    " To date, the best of the Pitt novels for me. The story takes Charlotte beyond the confines of England to help Thomas, now a secret agent, discover a traitor within their ranks. The book begins with a murder. Queen Victoria makes an appearance. There are captives, including this reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 10/17/2013

    " This is a change for me, I am reading this book. Usually we listen to audio versions of the Perry books while driving to Michigan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harriet | 8/27/2013

    " I enjoyed this Pitt. I always like Anne Perry's books of this period. Thia was a departure in that it featured Charlotte and his boss Narraway and had to do with Dublin. It was a very interesting view into Ireland and its politics at this time in history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 5/12/2013

    " Perry is back on her game. What keeps me coming back is that her books stand alone, but her series characters keeping growing older and these historical mysteries stay true to the time period. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 7/11/2012

    " This was fast-paced for an Anne Perry novel, with fewer of the long conversations that often slow the narrative down. The plot was unlikely but fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mayakda | 5/3/2012

    " You really have to lock away your disbelief for this one. I fyou can do that, it is fun to see Pitt and Charlotte working independently. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 3/24/2012

    " Very good, now looking at other books by Anne Perry "

    " Wonderful book as ususal....one of the most consistent authors I have read..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 6/28/2011

    " I used to be more excited about the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries but not so much now. Not sure - maybe getting a bit overly serious? Anyway, this was ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 6/24/2011

    " Latest entry in the Thomas & Charlotte Pitt series of two dozen titles and counting, a well if rather overwritten Victorian melodrama with good character development and a plot which begins strongly and then falters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci | 6/18/2011

    " Anne Perry never disappoints. I liked how Charlotte and Thomas were separated and not in contact during the investigation. I also liked the setting in Dublin as a change from London. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lewestover | 6/16/2011

    " This is one of my favorite Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mysteries. It can be summed up by saying "Things
    are not always as they seem." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 6/6/2011

    " I like Anne Perry's mysteries and was happy to see she had Charlotte and Thomas back. It's been awhile. This one is just as good as her others, and I hope she keeps up the good work. "

    " I enjoyed this Pitt. I always like Anne Perry's books of this period. Thia was a departure in that it featured Charlotte and his boss Narraway and had to do with Dublin. It was a very interesting view into Ireland and its politics at this time in history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 6/3/2011

    " Very exciting. But I liked Thomas as a policeman better than a government agent. Charlotte's role was unusual--and hardly appropriate for the era. Story was engaging however. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanne | 5/30/2011

    " love , love , love anne perry. this story kept me totally engrossed. was sorry to see it end "

    " Charlotte and Thomas Pitt are back and they save not only England but Queen Victoria. A good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 5/19/2011

    " I thought this was a bit dull in the middle, but egads! it really raced in the last 75 pages. Thomas and Charlotte took great risks (separately and together) in this story and Aunt Vespasia was the key. Here's hoping Thomas gets well rewarded for his efforts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia | 5/16/2011

    " Loved the latest Thomas and Charlotte Pitt novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 5/15/2011

    " Wonderful to read a Pitt novel again and to have Charlotte take such a central part. Visit to Dublin and its history an added bonus. This is the Anne Perry I treasure. "
