Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Perry may regret giving her long-running Victorian series hero, Thomas Pitt, a promotion to head of Special Branch, which takes him off the London streets, where he’s excelled, to his new role of keeping England safe from spies. It’s hard to get a good investigation going and involve his companion in crime solving, wife Charlotte, when everything is hush-hush. But, in a credibility-stretching maneuver, Perry gets Pitt back on the mean streets by positioning blood and hair on the very steps of the London home of a government scientist who is absolutely key in the Ministry of Defense. So Pitt, being of Special Branch, must investigate (pretty creaky copus ex machina here) and soon is at a gravel pit, where the body of a young woman has been found. Is it the missing lady’s maid to the defense minister’s wife? Once a positive connection has been made, Pitt must sort through whether the murder might have been the result of a broken-off affair or blackmail, among other possible motives. Even when warned off by Downing Street, Pitt persists, aided by Charlotte and her aristocratically placed sister. The contrived plot drops this one below Perry’s usual high level. --Connie Fletcher
