In New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry, the
glorious era when Britain reigned supreme has found its most
brilliant modern interpreter. Perryâ€™s gripping new Charlotte
and Thomas Pitt novel invites us back to Victorian London,
where greed and ambition never sleep, and passion sometimes
As the nineteenth century draws to a close, most of Europe
is in political turmoil, and terrorist threats loom large
across the continent. Adding to this unrest is the
controversial Sofia Delacruz, who has come to London from
Spain to preach a revolutionary gospel of love and
forgiveness that many consider blasphemous. Thomas Pitt,
commander of Special Branch, is charged with protecting
Sofiaâ€”and shielding Her Majestyâ€™s government from any
embarrassment that this woman, as beautiful as she is
charismatic, might cause.
When Sofia suddenly vanishes and two of her female disciples
are gruesomely murdered, Pitt is challenged as never before.
Is Sofiaâ€™s cousin, wealthy banker Barton Hall, somehow
involved? And why has handsome cricket star Dalton Teague
insinuated himself into Pittâ€™s investigation? Fearful that
this sensational crime may trigger an international
incident, Pitt welcomes the help of three allies: his clever
wife, Charlotte; her great-aunt, Lady Vespasia; and Victor
Narraway, Pittâ€™s friend and former commander at Special
Branch. From the narrow streets of Toledo and a lonely
monastery high in the hills of Spain, to the halls and
wharves of London, Pitt and his friends race against time in
their desperate bid to catch a murderer.
Anne Perry is the acknowledged mistress of Victorian
intrigue. No one else can match her period flavor, her
all-too-human characters, or her haunting truths, which
speak so clearly to our own time. The Angel Court
Affair may be the best of all the beloved Thomas Pitt
