Description
"In this superbly accomplished new Charlotte and Thomas Pitt adventure, Anne Perry takes us beneath the glittering surface of wealthy Victorian society into a nightmare world of fear and intimidation, where women are too often blamed for the violent attacks against them, and powerful men take what they want, leaving others to pay the price. The horrifying rape and apparent suicide of Catherine Quixwood, wife of a wealthy merchant banker, falls outside the new jurisdiction of Special Branch head Thomas Pitt, but so pervasively offensive are the rumors about the victim that Pitt quietly takes a hand in the investigation. Yet even with the help of his ingenious wife, Charlotte, and his former superior, Victor Narraway, Pitt is stumped. Why did high-minded, cultured Catherine choose not to accompany her husband to a grand party on the night of her demise? Why did she dismiss all her servants for the evening and leave the front door unlocked? What had been her relationship with the young man seen frequently by her side at concerts and art exhibits? And what can be done to avenge another terrible crime: the assault on Angeles Castelbranco, beloved teenage daughter of the Portuguese ."

        February 25, 2013
        Sexual violence is at the heart of bestseller Perry’s engrossing 28th Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel (after 2012’s Dorchester Terrace), set in 1896 London. Pitt, the new head of Special Branch, and his ousted predecessor, Victor Narraway, are about to leave a party when a police officer informs another guest, financier Rawdon Quixwood, that his wife, Catherine, is dead. Pitt and Narraway accompany Quixwood to the financier’s house, where they find the wife’s battered body. After being raped by her assailant—someone she apparently let inside—she drank a fatal dose of laudanum. Later, Angeles Castelbranco, the Portuguese ambassador’s daughter, plunges to her death in an effort to escape the rake who had been tormenting her. Pitt learns that she, too, was the victim of sexual assault. In an intriguing twist, Quixwood provides the alibi for the suspect in that case. Perry does a nice job exploring late Victorian attitudes toward sex crimes. Agent: Donald Maass, Donald Maas Literary Agency.

      • content: Anne Perry returns listeners to the lives of Londoners Charlotte and Thomas Pitt. After the 16-year-old daughter of the Portuguese ambassador leaps to her death, the Pitts grieve for her, particularly when they think of something like that happening to their own teenaged daughter. Narrator Davina Porter is sublime as she creates multiple accents for characters of varied classes and ages. In addition to feisty Charlotte and serious Thomas, Porter excels with the all-knowing Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould and her possible romance with Victor Narraway. When Charlotte and Vespasia discover that rape is behind the suicides of several young women, they compel the police to delve into a crime that was,more often than not ignored in the Victorian era.

        Perry's latest series entry (after Dorchester Terrace) examines the crime of rape. Two very different rape and death cases come to the Pitts' attention--one of the 16-year-old daughter of the Portuguese ambassador, the other of a charming, middle-aged socialite. Now head of Special Branch, Thomas is determined to bring the culprits to justice. Too soon he learns the frustrations of proving rape and prosecuting a rapist. Meanwhile, a skirmish in South Africa has ruined the investments of a prominent British financier. Can these events be connected? Can Thomas figure out the answers without endangering his family and his career? Davina Porter gives her usual sterling performance, voicing the increasingly worried Thomas, the more mature but still impetuous Charlotte, young Jemima Pitt on the brink of womanhood, and many other characters. Pitch and pacing are the effective means that Porter uses to bring the young girls, the brusque, impatient older men, and the experienced older women to life. VERDICT Recommended for fans of the series and historical mysteries. [The Ballantine hc was a New York Times best seller.--Ed.]--Juleigh Muirhead Clark, Colonial Williamsburg Fdn. Lib., VA
