As much as I enjoy Anne Perry's novels, the formatting by Ballantine Books is much worse than usual. I'm quite accustomed to the many, many typos throughout these e-books. However, this one doesn't even have a table of contents listed in the drop down menu. Seriously, no table of contents? Anne Perry's work deserves better than this.

A great read. Once again Anne Perry knocks it out of the park. The Inner Circle is back at it old tricks and to defeat Inspector Wetron, a member of the Inner Circle, Pitt is disposed to enlist the aid of his old enemy Sir Charles Voisey to defeat the terrorists and the brutality of a misguided group of idealists and stop the frantic rush of Parliament to pass a bill that will severely curtail civil liberities. As usual Charlotte and her great Aunt, Lady Vespasia Cumming-Could are Pitt's allies, as Pitt strives to save the British Empire from disaster.

Anne Perry's mysteries do not appeal to many mystery readers. I find Perry's Pitt mysteries very interesting. I have read all of them to date. I would not recommend reading this book as an introduction to the series. To me, a large part of my ongoing interest in the series is the growth not just in the Pitts, but in a number of of other characters.

It is the 15th book in a series set in Victorian times following Detective Thomas Pitt. I was give book nine in the series and liked it to much that I have been buying every book in order from one, a couple of month. Now up to 16 in the series, it follows the Pitt family so well it leaves the reader feeling as if they not only know Pitt but his wife, children, sister-in-law and aunt. etc. After reading 16 of these books in the series, I feel like I know that family.

I truly enjoyed this book. Anne Perry is an exceptional writer. In addition to spinning an intriguing mystery, she also weaves a picture of Victorian England that makes you feel as if you were there. If you are a fan of English history and a mystery buff, Thomas and Charlotte Pitt will be right up your Long Spoon Lane! I strongly encourage you to read the books in order so that you can see the progression of history unfold! Enjoy!

Man! I really liked this stories. When, I listened to it...I felt as if I was actually there. And furthermore, I had to
remember that the time setting was further back in time than I thought it was. And, I liked that.

Great novel, bringing to light the corrupt workings of the Bow Street Commander, Wetron, and how Viosey tries to use the passage of a Bill in the House of Commons, that supports the London Police, to entice Thomas Pitt to join forces with him, only to find that part of his plan is vindication for Pitts part in his loosing face with the Inner Circle. Loved it!
I've read almost all Anne Perry's book, both with Charlotte and Thomas Pitt as well as Hester and Monk. She is the best writer for this period.
