Anne Perryâ€™s superb New York Times bestselling novels
set in the glorious reign of Victoria are loved by readers
far and wide. Now, with this new Charlotte and Thomas Pitt
mystery, Perry returns us to that charmed era, when wealth
and power ruleâ€”but where, alas, poisonous corruption lies
coiled in the heart of the empire.
As commander of the powerful Special Branch, Thomas Pitt has
the job of keeping Britain safe from spies and traitors. So
thereâ€™s no obvious reason why he is suddenly ordered to
investigate two minor incidents: the blood, hair, and shards
of glass discovered outside the home of naval weapons expert
Dudley Kynaston, and the simultaneous disappearance of Mrs.
Kynastonâ€™s beautiful ladyâ€™s maid.
But weeks later, when the mutilated body of an unidentified
young woman is found near Kynastonâ€™s home, Pitt realizes
that this is no ordinary police investigation. Far from it.
Is Kynastonâ€”one of Britainâ€™s most valuable
scientistsâ€”leading a double life? Is Pitt saddled with a
conspiracy so devilishly clever that it will ruin him?
A baffled Pitt has never needed his friends more
desperately, including his indomitable wife, Charlotte; his
canny old colleague Victor Narraway; and his personal
drawing-room spy, Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould. But even
these allies may not be able to save Pittâ€”or Britain.
Only Anne Perry could have created the tense unfolding of
plot and counterplot, love and betrayal, scandal and murder
that follows. Death on Blackheath is rich with
fascinating characters, authentic period flavor,
knifeâ€™s-edge suspense, and a haunting, unforgettable denouement.
