    In the posh London street of Paragon Walk, a young woman is brutally raped and murdered. Once again the incomparable team of sleuths, Inspector Thomas Pitt and his young wife, Charlotte, peer beneath the elegant masks of the well-born suspects and reveal that something ugly lurks behind the handsome facades of Paragon Walk, something that could lead to more scandal, and more murder.

    Overall

    Parragon Walk is populated by a small group of the most deliciously dislikable people who give nothing away no matter who does the questioning, Detective Inspector Thomas Pitt (of Bow Street Station) or his beloved wife, Charlotte. Like the most tangled yarn, this 19th century-based mystery was a labor of love to untangle. A most enjoyable and satisfying mystery.

    Captain Hayward leads the official homocide investigation, while Pendergast, D'Agosta, and Nora undertake a private quest for the truth. Their serpentine journey takes them into a part of Manhattan they never imagined could exist: a secretive and deadly hotbed of Obeah, the West Indian Zombii cult of sorcery and magic. And it is here they find their true peril is just beginning.

    Overall

    Could it be faster paced? Possibly. Could it be less gorey? Probably. Could it be more "up beat"? Perhaps. But then, it wouldn't be Pendergast. Add Rene Auberjonois and his New Orleans Southern aristocrat accent and prepare yourself for listening at it's best.

    Haven't met Special Agent Pendergast? This is as good a place to start as any. You'll be glad you did.

    Callander Square is the second of Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries. Full of well-drawn and convincing characters, Callander Square offers a finely crafted recreation of Victorian England. The bodies of two newborn babies have been found in a park in the fashionable London neighborhood of Callander Square.

    Chuck says: "The Pitt Family at their best!"
    "The Pitt Family at their best!"
    Overall

    All the best elements of a Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery -- sympathetic characters, inexcusable characters, bounders, twits, heroines, and heroes -- all here and embroiled in a convoluted and historically engaging mystery.

    Filled with 19th century British social conventions and police procedures set against a London backdrop.

    This book is Anne Perry at her mysterious best!
