Publisher's Summary

The Cater Street Hangman is the first of Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries. Set in the Victorian era, it is an elegant and complex mystery full of well-drawn characters and rich period detail. When a maid in the upper class Ellison household is strangled, Inspector Pitt is called in to investigate. He finds a world ruled by strict manners and social customs, where the inhabitants of the Ellison's neighborhood appear to be more outraged by the thought of scandal than they are by murder. Inspector Pitt finds a most unlikely ally in Charlotte, the Ellison's spirited daughter. But as the murders continue, Charlotte and Pitt find themselves drawn together by more than the investigation.

    "The Cater Street Hangman"

    What I loved most about this book was the articulate language and sentences. The plot was good, but listening to the sweet expression of English was wonderful.

    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.

    "The Cater Steet Hangman"

    I loved it. I think it's the best of the Thomas Pitt series. It's always good to find out how the characters met.

    "Great Listen!"

    I enjoyed the suspenseful story and Austenesque romance! And as for the storytelling - the narrator was excellent!

    "First in audio at last☺"

    I'm a great fan of this series and can only enjoy books by listening because of failing vision, so I scarf these up as soon as they become available. Hni hint😊 I is a treat to add this book to my library's virtual shelf.

    "Less than I expected"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cater Street Hangman to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    Would you recommend The Cater Street Hangman to your friends? Why or why not?

    It depends on the friend. There are other books that I'd be more likely to recommend.


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

    I almost always enjoy Davina Porter's narrations and did for this book. No one specific character.


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

    Not extreme - just a sense of disappointment. I purchased it based on the many 5-star reviews but wasn't as satisfied as those listeners were. It seemed shallow and the murderer became obvious about 2/3 the way through.

    "So excited for this series"

    I had just finished The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, and wanted another Victorian mystery. This was a great book. I look forward to the rest of the series. The characters were very interesting, and the mystery was engaging. I did feel it ended rather abruptly however, but at least there are more books in the series to continue.

    "Better than Monk!"

    I've listened to 5 of Anne Perry's Monk series and as much as I enjoyed them, I enjoyed this much more. Looking forward to following this series with much enthusiasm. Davina Porter's men's voices are so feminine that there is no suspension of disbelief for me, but I've listened to nine books narrated by her so I clearly like her well enough.

    "if you love victorian mysteries"

    Well paced and enjoyable detective story based on snobby victorian ways and the upper and lower elements of old London town. First in a looong series, if you've got the time to spend watching the characters develop and the bad guys get caught.
