In the history of Anne Perryâ€™s bestselling Victorian
mystery series, the stakes have never been greater than
nowâ€”as a mission for queen and country places the future of
the British Empire squarely in Thomas Pittâ€™s hands.
It is not the custom for the commander of Special Branch to
receive a royal summonsâ€”so Thomas Pitt knows it must be for
a matter of the gravest importance. The body of Sir John
Halberd, the Queenâ€™s confidant, has been found in the
shallow water of the Serpentine in Hyde Park, bearing the
evidence of a fatal blow to the head. At Her Majestyâ€™s
request, Sir John had been surreptitiously investigating
Alan Kendrick, a horse-racing enthusiast who seems to have
had an undue amount of influence on her son, the Prince of
Now Commander Pitt must navigate the corridors of power with
the utmost discretion and stealth, for it seems certain that
Sir Johnâ€™s killer is a member of the upper classes. Aided by
his wife, Charlotte, and her social contacts, Pitt seeks out
the hidden motives behind the polite faĂ§ade of those to the
manner bornâ€”and uncovers a threat to the throne that could
topple the monarchy.
With MURDER ON THE SERPENTINE, Thomas Pitt nears a
crossroads in his brilliant careerâ€”one that promises new
challenges, both professional and personal, still to be met.
But first, he and Charlotte must conquer the twists and
turns of suspense master Anne Perryâ€™s most cunningly crafted
plot yetâ€”to achieve their finest hour, or suffer their darkest.
