Like most Charlotte and Thomas Pitt books, this was a bit long-though not as long as many of them. A nice weaving of human rights (which is what it boils down to), the end of the Victorian Age, religious freedom, freedom of conscience, and the treatment of the insane. Blessings on all the stalwart women who went before: both those who fought for our rights and those who endured stalwartly the repression of their spirits.

I am an Anne Perry fan. I have read almost all of the Monk series and now have been reading the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series. Ms Perry is a gifted and brilliant writer. Her books are some of my all-time favorites. Bethlehem Road surprised me when the religious part came up. The theology was very familiar. Several of my ancestors were converted in England and Ireland during a similar time period as that which was portrayed in the book. My great grandmother, a young lady 18 years old, was converted by my great grandfather (my father's grandfather). She came back with him to America where they were married. I read some of the reviews and didn't find any mention of the religion that was described in the book. I realize it was just a small section used to advance the plot, but thought maybe someone noticed the coincidence too.

It never occurred to me that someone else was in the scope of this mystery. I couldn't imagine who the killer was. I thought and I thought but I couldn't figure it out. Duh...No wonder Anne Perry is one of the queens of mystery! I love Charlotte and her stickiness. I love t hat show v especially Thomas even tho he's not of the same social level as Charlotte. And who wouldn't love Great-Aunt Vespacia?

I so enjoy An e Perry's books and bow detailed she writes...about the furniture and draperies and the plants, for goodness sake! Please keep writing!

I've been reading the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series from the beginning and I thought the books are generally well written and provide enough entertainment for me to want to keep reading them.

Before I continue though, this review can be considered a spoiler alert, so beware: Bethlehem Road was also well written and the story was intriguing up until the very end. When you read a murder mystery, the point is to try to guess the "who done it" aspect and figure out the mystery along with the characters. That pursuit was impossible here because after reading 200 pages or so (not sure how many pages because I read it on my Kindle) and becoming familiar with a cast of characters who could have been the murderer, all of a sudden, in the last remaining 30 pages of the book, an entirely new character is introduced along with a completely new plot line and the murder is explained that way! Why the heck did I just spend 200 pages reading about all these other characters then? What was the purpose of the entire book?

The introduction of a brand new character at the very end of the book just ruined the entire book for me. If you are reading this series, I would definitely skip this book. It may even ruin the whole series for you!

If you are reading this series in order this book is a bit disappointing--in fact I wonder if Anne Perry wrote them in a different order and then tried to fit them together. The previous book (Silence in Hanover Close) features Thomas being arrested for murder, Charlotte being shunned by her neighbors and Emily going undercover as a lady's maid in order to help solve the crime--but in this book there is no mention of how their lives may have changed as a result! It's seemingly back to business as usual. Otherwise this is a good read and an enjoyable look into Victorian England, although Charlotte's role here is much less satisfying as in some of the earlier books in the series.

Anne Perry is in my opinion unparalled as current writer. I find her books to be well paced with a tight plot. I am always guessing until the end or near the end. The fact that her books are set in victorian times are only a bonus. If you are like me you will enjoy this book and the series as well.
Era
Emily is off on honeymoon and so only appears in letters. Members of Parliament keep ending up dead as they walk home. They investigate personal, business, and political motives finding none. Vespasias friend's niece gets caught up in the net. Her boarder was thwarted by one of the dead MPs in barbaric custody womens rights law. Charlotte starts investigating. In the end the killer comes out of nowhere and real evil lies elsewhere.
Windbearer
The statue of Boadicea driving her war chariot stands in front of the British Parliament building. Members of Parliament (MPs), walking past the statue every day, contended that women did not have the ability to understand issues and vote intelligently. The year is 1888 and women's rights are a contentious issue. When MPs have their throats cut on the way home from evening sessions, suspicion points in many directions. Was it a radical women's rights advocate, a demented anarchist, or perhaps someone benefiting financially?
Thomas Pitt and his wife, Charlotte, become involved in the investigation. The entire issue of women's rights unfolds including various repressive laws. There are issues of inheritance, child custody, and a wife's obligations to her husband (religious fundamentalists in the U.S. have been revisiting this issue). This is a real whodunit with a surprising conclusion. The novel provides a good picture of the English social structure of that time period.
As usual Anne Perry's books are true to the time and this makes them most interesting. That said, this one was a little too preachy. The information about women's lack of rights was accurate but delivered in a manner that was heavy and pedantic. Great information, badly delivered. As usual, her ending was odd but at least not abrupt. Still, the stories are interesting enough to move on to the next. Pitt and Charlotte are worth following.
