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.

    "Perfect in every respect!"

    Plenty of intrigue and suspense, romantic without being cheesy or tawdry. Well developed characters and a very well written story line. Delightful all round!

    "Bit predictable "

    This story was ok. I don't think I could have "stuck with" this book had it not been for the fast moving plot as I hated 99% of the characters in this book. I actually cheered when one of them was murdered.

    "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!

    Story
    "generally good"

    I thought the murderer was pretty obvious but for some reason still enjoyed listening to it. the narrator is good but not great; I find her male voices a little annoying (more weird intonation than different voices).

    "Very Slow Developing Story"

    I know with the first book in a series one has to allow for character and story development. Yet, this was excruciatingly slow and redundant with all the characters. The story line itself was quite shallow.
    I do love the narrator and the way she tells the story.

    Story
    "A mini Monk"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This story was a mini Monk and Hester story I prefer Monk


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure looking for a new series


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Davina Porter?

    Yes she was great


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Cater Street Hangman?

    The marriage proposals to the sister's a day after another sister was brutally murdered rather stupid


    Any additional comments?

    I expected better of Anne Perry
