Thomas and Charlotte Pitt Series, #22
Add to Wish List
"It's 1892, and an election is just days away. With Lord
Salisbury's future looking uncertain, the political climate
is perfect for an evil man with selfish ambitions to put
himself forward as a Tory candidate. That man is Charles
Voisey, whom Thomas Pitt recently defeated." "Despite being
thanked by Queen Victoria herself for the courage and
loyalty he showed in the Whitechapel case, Pitt has been
demoted from his position as Superintendent of Bow Street
police to work in Special Branch: a mark of revenge by the
Inner Circle. And now, Pitt's first case is to obtain every
piece of information he can that might stop Voisey winning
his Tory seat and beginning the climb to a power which
would corrupt the justiciary of the land." "Within hours of
beginning his investigation into Voisey's affairs, Pitt is
commanded by his superior to go to Southampton Row, where
the murder of a famous medium, Maude Lamont, has been
reported. Totally bewildered as to why this should be
related to his task with Special Branch, Pitt arrives at
the house. The murder was grotesque - and personal. Who
were Maude Lamont's clients the night she died? Who had she
claimed to call up from the past? And what had they
revealed that had ended in murder?" As a link is revealed
between the spiritualist and the political figures Pitt is
investigating, the whispers of scandal, violence and
assault grow louder. And with his wife, Charlotte, hiding
for safety with their children in the country, Pitt must
turn to his sister-in-law Emily for help in solving one of
his most high profile cases yet.
