Summary

Summary

A USA Today bestseller

A Boston Globe bestseller

When the distinguished Mr. Justice Stafford dies of opium poisoning, his shocking demise resurrects one of the most sensational cases ever to inflame England: the murder five years before of Kingsley Blaine, whose body was found crucified in Farriers’ Lane. Amid the public hysteria for revenge, the police had arrested a Jewish actor who was soon condemned to hang.

Police Inspector Thomas Pitt, investigating Stafford’s death, is drawn into the Farriers’ Lane murder as well, for it appears that Stafford may have been about to reopen the case. Pitt receives curiously little help from his colleagues on the force, but his wife, Charlotte, gleans from her social engagements startling insights into both cases. And slowly both Thomas and Charlotte begin to reach for the same sinister and deeply dangerous truth.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Devious affair of passion and political intrigue in Victorian London…The author suggests that Victorian vengeance against moral renegades was swifter and more merciless than hanging.”       New York Times
“In the riveting thirteenth adventure of Victorian police Inspector Thomas Pitt and his wife, Charlotte, Perry reshuffles her deck of series characters while adeptly weaving in themes of anti-Semitism and abuse of the law.” Publishers Weekly
“Perry is wonderfully adept at depicting the customs, manners, morality, fashions, and speech of Victorian London. Her characters are authentically and appealingly drawn, and her plot is sinister, gripping, and intense, with a surprising but satisfying ending. Like the earlier entries in the series, this is certain to be popular with fans of historical mysteries.” Booklist
“When it comes to the Victorian mystery, Anne Perry has proved that nobody does it better. San Diego Union-Tribune, praise for the series
