Gripping and provocative, the latest Thomas and Charlotte
Pitt mystery by New York Times bestselling author
Anne Perry peers unflinchingly into the corrupt affairs of
Victorian society on the brink of the century’s turn. The
world is poised for social and political change, but England
holds tight to its traditions, classes, and prejudices.
When an explosion in London kills two policemen and
seriously injures three more, many believe that anarchists
are the culprits. But Thomas Pitt, commander of Special
Branch, knows the city’s radical groups well enough to
suspect otherwise: that someone with decidedly more personal
motives lit the deadly fuse. As he investigates the source
of the fatal blast, he’s stunned to discover the bombing was
a calculated strike against the ranks of law enforcement.
But still more shocking revelations await, as Pitt’s
inquiries lead him to a member of Parliament hoping for a
lucrative business deal, a high-ranking police officer with
secrets to keep, and an aristocratic opium addict seeking
murderous revenge. As he pursues each increasingly
threatening lead, Pitt finds himself impeded at every turn
by the barriers put in place to protect the rich and
powerful—barriers which, as they start to crumble, threaten
to bury him alive.
