While the Ellison girls were out paying calls and drinking tea like proper Victorian ladies, a maid in their household was strangled to death. The quiet and young Inspector Pitt investigates the scene and finds no one above suspicion. As his intense questioning causes many a composed facade to crumble, Pitt finds himself couriously drawn to pretty Charlotte Ellison. Yet, a romance between a society girl and so unsuitable a suitor was impossible in the midst of a murder....

"Like reading Thackeray edited by Elmore Leonard." - Booklist

I love Anne Perry. She's an amazingly talented writer, but the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series is my favorite. Thomas Pitt is a Bow Street detective and Charlotte is his formerly high-society wife. Together they make the ultimate Victorian era crime solving team.
