Publisher's Summary

The ritual murder of a prostitute named Ada McKinley in a bedroom on decrepit Pentecost Alley would ordinarily occasion no stir in Victoria's great metropolis. But under the victim's body the police find a Hellfire Club badge inscribed with the name Finlay Fitzjames - a name that instantly draws Superintendent Thomas Pitt into the case.  

Finlay's father - immensely wealthy, powerful, and dangerous - refuses to consider the possibility that his son has been in Ada McKinley's bed. The implication is clear: Pitt is to arrest someone other than Finlay Fitzjames for Ada's demise. But Thomas Pitt is not a man to be intimidated, and with the help of his quick-witted wife, Charlotte, and her well-connected friends, he stubbornly pursues his investigation - one that twists and turns like London's own ancient streets....  

Anne Perry has devised the most intricate mystery of her prolific career in Pentecost Alley, whose brilliant resolution will astonish and satisfy even the most discerning.

A book not to pass

BRAVO!
MAGNIFICENTE!
Of all the Anne Perry’s books this one is by far my favorite. It held my attention until the end. That is to say a lot considering I have been reading mystery books since

Wow

This was definitely intriguing and intense. But I still have questions about the second murder.

This author is amazing in her imagination and the narrator is perfect.

On to the next adventure

The Best Plot Ever!

Some don't care for the detail that Anne Perry writes with, but I'm not one of them. For the true armchair sleuth, she let's us inside the head of Charotte and William Pitt, and even Eleanor, but we see the clues as they see them. This book in particular had so many twists and turns that even when you think you know who did it, you don't know enough until the end. What an amazing writer. The nuances of her characters both big and small make this a psychological mystery tour de force.

Great read as always!

This is the first time I was able to figure some of it out before the very end, but still an incredibly satisfying story.
