What the Critics Say

"The mystery is an adroit blend of thick London atmosphere and a convincing cast, mingled with the complex and straitlaced conventions of Victorian England. A bonus is a totally surprising yet wonderfully plausible finale." (Publishers Weekly)

    "A MUST for Anne Perry lovers!!"

    She's done it again, by gum. For those unfamiliar w this author, she uses the strict mores and rules -- as well as the class system -- of Victorian England to further the action of the story. Not only is there a murder or 2, but police were considered quite low class, so our hero can go to seedy places for information, while his higher-born wife can infiltrate "society" to do the same.

    Simultaneously, we learn a lot about how this social and political system worked or didn't work, and it's impossible (for me, at least) not to observe that the strictures placed upon women during that time are not so "gone" as we would like to believe.

    "In fine form"

    As always, Anne Perry is excellent. You almost think you've got it figured out and then you don't. Good view of life and society in the times, and as always with Perry, good thorough psychological portraits. Well plotted and enjoyable.

    "Completely enjoyable listen!"
    If you could sum up Silence in Hanover Close in three words, what would they be?

    Well crafted tale


    Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

    I love Ms. Porter's ability to make us feel as though we were listening to a whole cast of performers. But my favorite is undoubtedly her portrayal of Charlotte Pitt

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    This is my favorite so far of the Thomas Pitt series. I loved the ending. I absolutely never saw it coming.

    "Another dynamic pairing!"

    I enjoy Anne Perry's stories, and can't get enough of Davina Porter's narrations. I found the entire series to be fun "reading"!
