Publisher's Summary

In the first gray of a mid-September morning, Thomas Pitt, mainstay of Her Majesty's Special Branch, is summoned to Connaught Square mansion where the body of a junior diplomat lies huddled in a wheelbarrow. Nearby stands the tenant of the house, the beautiful and notorious Egyptian woman Ayesha Zakhari, who falls under the shadow of suspicion. Pitt's orders, emanating from Prime Minister Gladstone himself, are to protect-at all costs-the good name of the third person in the garden: senior cabinet minister Saville Ryerson. This distinguished public servant, whispered to be Ayesha's lover, insists that she is as innocent as he is himself. Could it be true?

In the dead man's less-than-stellar reputation, Pitt finds hope. But in ancient Alexandria, where the victim was once an army officer, hope grows dim. For there, Pitt receives intimations of deadly entanglements stretching from Egyptian cotton fields to Manchester cotton mills, from the noxious London slum known as Seven Dials to the madhouse called Bedlam.

Meanwhile, in a packed courtroom at the Old Bailey, time is ticking away for Ayesha and Saville. With Pitt and his clients racing against the hangman, the trial reaches its pulse-pumping climax.

    "Love This Series; This One Book, Not So Much"

    This is a wonderful, fascinating series by Anne Perry. The earlier books narrated by the incomparable Davina Porter are an absolute treat to listen to. Michael Page does ok, but does suffer by comparison. The intrigue of most of these stories comes from the dramas that exist w/in upper class English society in the late 1800's. For some reason this book deviated from that sure fire formula and left me disappointed. However Charlotte and Thomas can become like old friends if you read/listen to these books in sequence -- and it's really hard to come down too hard on old friends. If you're interested in this book, your best bet is to start at the beginning of this series and get to know these interesting and complex characters as they grow and change.

    Live on edge of National Forest with lake, birds & wild animals. No more perfect place to indulge life-long love of reading.
