Publisher's Summary

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?

murder on the serpentine

this was hands down my favorite one so far! it has the feel of the earlier Charlotte and Thomas investigations but with the polish of the newer ones. I am a lot g time reader of the Pitt and Monk books ever since my grandparents turned me onto to them. I'll just say the end has a special treat for all devoted readers!!!

Sir Thomas and Lady Pitt

Wow! A great ending. I have a feeling it may be the end of a wonderful series. Started off a little slow, but picked up after a few chapters. Can't wait for a whole new series from one of my favorite authors. I would be remiss if I didn't include the narrator who always brings Anne Perry's characters to life,

where does Anne Perry go from here?

I have read All of Miss Perry's books (listened to them too) , but this one tops them all!! I adore Thomas & Charlotte Pitt, following them from beginning to end was GREAT!
The best of all was having Thomas knighted .
Sir Thomas & Lady Pittman now my question is
where do we go from here Miss Perry!!!

Murder on the Serpentine

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on the Serpentine to be better than the print version?

Although it was an excellent rendition, I can't give an answer to this question...I listen to audio books because my eyes become strained when I read.

What did you like best about this story?

I found the plot very interesting and it was also very well developed and articulated. It has been some years since I read a book by Anne Perry, and reading this book, I felt she has become a master story teller. Mystery and suspense is by far my favourite genre, and yet I found her approach was quite innovative.

Have you listened to any of Jenny Sterlin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my introduction to Jenny Sterlin, but I enjoyed listening to her so much that I look forward to listening to other books read by her.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I pass on this one!

Any additional comments?

excillent

all I can say is I cried in public when Thomas was knighted. It was a better moment then Noraway's proposal.
