Publisher's Summary

Gripping and provocative, the latest Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery by New York Times best-selling author Anne Perry peers unflinchingly into the corrupt affairs of Victorian society on the brink of the century's turn.

The world is poised for social and political change, but England holds tight to its traditions, classes, and prejudices. When an explosion in London kills two policemen and seriously injures three more, many believe that anarchists are the culprits. But Thomas Pitt, commander of Special Branch, knows the city's radical groups well enough to suspect otherwise: that someone with decidedly more personal motives lit the deadly fuse.

As he investigates the source of the fatal blast, he's stunned to discover the bombing was a calculated strike against the ranks of law enforcement. But still more shocking revelations await as Pitt's inquiries lead him to a member of Parliament hoping for a lucrative business deal, a high-ranking police officer with secrets to keep and an aristocratic opium addict seeking murderous revenge. As he pursues each increasingly threatening lead, Pitt finds himself impeded at every turn by the barriers put in place to protect the rich and powerful - barriers which, as they start to crumble, threaten to bury him alive.

    Story
    "A suggestion"

    Story was interesting but was put off by the female voice for Inspector Pitt.
    His character would have been better served.

    Story
    "One of her best stories"
    What did you love best about Treachery at Lancaster Gate?

    I liked how the story slowly unfolded, and how Pitt and Telman had to face some disturbing facts.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think Telman was my favorite. His idealism was tested. It was nice to see something about his relationship with Gracie also.


    Any additional comments?

    My only disappointment with the book was the ending. It was a little too pat and not quite believable.

    "disappointing"

    A potentially good story not helped by belabored descriptions of character motivations and an overheated reading. The behavior of the characters in the courtroom was truly unbelievable.
    I generally enjoy the author's work & the narrator's, but this, to me, is not a good example.

    "Compelling!"

    this Anne Perry book has much to do with the modern-day things that we are dealing with in our politics and in our safety in the United States. It is very insightful!
