Queen Victoria herself presents the head of England's top investigative force, Thomas Pitt, with his most high stakes case yet in the 32nd installment of the New York Times best-selling series by Anne Perry. When Thomas Pitt is summoned to Queen Victoria's private chambers, he hardly knows what to expect. When she tells him that the body of one of her closest confidants - Sir John Halberd - has been found in the Serpentine, he knows he is facing his most daunting and dangerous investigation yet. Sir John was a man who kept many secrets, moving within a circle of the most powerful and prominent members of London society. And the more Pitt learns about Sir John's past, the more he puts himself and his loved ones at risk. The royal family cannot be denied, but will the most important case of Pitt's career be his last?

Good story, stretched.
No, the plot was not that riviting. The character development was over extended.
She did both the men and women's voice, and for the most part they did not seem contrived.
Pit makes it in high society.
I have listened to all of Ann Perry's books and was really disappointed. The carry over of the characters from one title to another was not done nearly as well as in the past. Dialog was used to carry the story forward, but became tiresome. The ending, Pitt solving his personal dilemma, was the best part of the story.
