Publisher's Summary

The Prince of Wales has asked four wealthy entrepreneurs and their wives to Buckingham Palace to discuss a fantastic idea: the construction of a 6000-mile railroad that would stretch the full length of Africa. But the prince’s gathering proves disastrous when the mutilated body of a prostitute turns up in a linen closet among the queen’s monogrammed sheets. With great haste, Thomas Pitt, the brilliant mainstay of Special Services, is summoned to resolve the crisis. The Pitts’ cockney maid, Gracie, is also recruited to pose as a palace servant and listen in on the guests’ conversations. If Pitt and Gracie fail to find out who brutally murdered the young woman, Pitt’s career will be over, and the scandal may just cause the monarchy to fall.

    Story
    "Perry's Historical novels w/ Thomas Pitt satisfy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, anyone interested in historical fiction, England and mysteries would enjoy this book. Set in 19th century England we get a real feel for how different the time and place are while the author creates moral and ethical dilemmas for the characters to wrestle. Her novels are thought provoking and lead me to want to learn more. I looked up the trans Africa railway and read about it half way through listening to the novel. I also read up on the Prince of Wales and his wife HRH Princess Alexandra of Denmark. It is quite interesting the way the author takes historical settings and overlays her mystery in a plausible way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy her characters and their growth.


    Which character – as performed by Jenny Sterlin – was your favorite?

    Thomas Pitt is the protagonist and my favorite, however, I must say that the voices are so good, I forget that one person is doing all parts. The maid is fabulous for her unique point of view and the Duchess for the same reason. Naraway too is compelling based on his more cynical view of the human race but he is not immune to change.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. But it did make me think.


    Any additional comments?

    Fans of Downton Abbey would like these books.

    "Nicely done"

    Loved it! The story line was clean and the characters were nicely evolved. Of course I enjoyed the English imagery.

    "Extremely boring. Don't waste a credit."
    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed many books in this series but I had a very difficult time finishing this one. Pit plays a minor role and Charlette is not in the story. The narrater is good.
