Description
In New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry, the glorious era when Britain reigned supreme has found its most brilliant modern interpreter. Perry’s gripping new Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel invites us back to Victorian London, where greed and ambition never sleep, and passion sometimes runs riot.

As the nineteenth century draws to a close, most of Europe is in political turmoil, and terrorist threats loom large across the continent. Adding to this unrest is the controversial Sofia Delacruz, who has come to London from Spain to preach a revolutionary gospel of love and forgiveness that many consider blasphemous. Thomas Pitt, commander of Special Branch, is charged with protecting Sofia—and shielding Her Majesty’s government from any embarrassment that this woman, as beautiful as she is charismatic, might cause.

When Sofia suddenly vanishes and two of her female disciples are gruesomely murdered, Pitt is challenged as never before. Is Sofia’s cousin, wealthy banker Barton Hall, somehow involved? And why has handsome cricket star Dalton Teague insinuated himself into Pitt’s investigation? Fearful that this sensational crime may trigger an international incident, Pitt welcomes the help of three allies: his clever wife, Charlotte; her great-aunt, Lady Vespasia; and Victor Narraway, Pitt’s friend and former commander at Special Branch. From the narrow streets of Toledo and a lonely monastery high in the hills of Spain, to the halls and wharves of London, Pitt and his friends race against time in their desperate bid to catch a murderer.

Anne Perry is the acknowledged mistress of Victorian intrigue. No one else can match her period flavor, her all-too-human characters, or her haunting truths, which speak so clearly to our own time. The Angel Court Affair may be the best of all the beloved Thomas Pitt novels.

        Threats to a religious radical become Thomas Pitt's problem in bestseller Perry's 30th historical featuring the Pitt husband-and-wife sleuthing team (after 2014's Death on Blackheath), one of the series' better entries. Sofia Delacruz, an Englishwoman who has been living in Spain, has achieved notoriety for her views on the relationship between man and God. Right before she embarks on a speaking tour of England in April 1898, Sofia receives letters threatening her life, and Thomas, who's in charge of Special Branch, is ordered by his superior to insure that Sofia remains unharmed while on British soil. Since the U.S. has just declared war on Spain after the destruction of the USS Maine, international tensions, already exacerbated by a series of anarchist bombings, are at a high level. The Home Office fears that Sofia's death as a result of her beliefs could lead to war with Spain. Despite Thomas's best efforts, he's unable to shield her from violence. As usual, Perry melds the intellectual debates of the day with a suspenseful plot line. Agent: Donald Maass, Donald Maass Literary Agency.

        This next entry in the New York Times best-selling Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series opens with the kidnapping of Sofia Delacruz, an eyebrow-raising young British preacher home from Spain on a murky mission. Not exactly thrilled when he was given the assignment to protect her, Thomas now realizes that there's more at stake than he imagined.
