    A weird horrible and seemingly unconnected to Pitt and Special Branch murder exposes something far worse TREASON Ba ba bum Or does itAnd what is up with the broken glass and HAIR all over the area stepsIt's a headscratcher to be sure and also contains so much of my least favorite thing but let's face it it's why I keep reading wealthy men demanding that Pitt solve crimes whilst simultaneously lying to him about the crim

    There is no mistaking Anne Perry's style She approaches the Victorian era as though it is current day and delivers daily living by deeply thinking adversaries It's exactly the way I like to learn my history by making it an

    This one was a bit all over the place But I've come to the conclusion that Vespasia is a vampire as she's now younger than when the series first started which is almost a 20 years time span Now that is a mystery worthy of a Pitt investigation

    The book opened well enough Unfortunately it uickly became as bogged down as the investigation As the plot slowed to a trickle the author resorted to melodramatic flourishes to try to maintain interest which didn't resonate with me I also didn
