The 12th mystery in the beloved Inspector and Charlotte Pitt Victorian mystery series. When a moneylender named William Weems is murdered, there is discreet rejoicing among those whose meager earnings he devoured. But the plot thickens when Inspector Pitt finds a list of London’s distinguished gentlemen in Weems’ office.
Would you listen to Belgrave Square again? Why?
I have read/listened to the entire Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series via Audible. This last book performed by Davina Porter is the most complex and beautifully read. The characters come vividly alive under Davina Porters truly talented reading. The complexity of the plot still brought surprises at the end. As a note for readers going forward in the series the next nine books are MIA's and when you rejoin the series it will be read by Micheal Page. Mr. Page may be talented, but not nearly as effective as Ms. Porter in bringing the characters alive and does not do justice to Ms. Perry's skill in character creation.

For us history buffs Miss Perrys books are a walk through tne past. On to the next book in the series.
A mystery with more questions the further you listen to the story. Every character has a secret, has a reason to be suspect yet the final five minutes had me sitting in the driveway to hear the conclusion. Never saw it coming!!
Anne Perry's details and suspense keep me listening to the shocking end. Characters seem real
Where does Belgrave Square rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Davina Porter is an amazing narrator. In fact, she's the primary reason I can't get enough of the Pitt series on audio. Ms. Porter easily moves from one dialect to another, skillfully changing her voice from one gender and social class to another. It's her voice that makes me feel like I'm right there in London at the end of the 1800s.
Any additional comments?
I'm only disappointed that this is the last Pitt series book on Audible until later in the series.
