Publisher's Summary

Not since the bloody deeds of Jack the Ripper have Londoners felt such terror as that aroused by the gruesome beheadings in Hyde Park. And if newly promoted Police Superintendent Thomas Pitt does not quickly apprehend the perpetrator, he is likely to lose his own head, professionally speaking. Yet even with the help of Charlotte Pitt’s subtle investigation, the sinister violence continues unchecked. And in a shocking turn of events that nearly convinces the pair of sleuths that they have met their match, the case proves to be Pitt’s toughest ever.

My first Anne Perry, really good

I listened to the book twice to find the plot tight and well done. The historical setting added a vital and tasteful backdrop to an intriguing mystery.

Another Perry Winner

As the title suggests the murders are gruesome and Thomas Pitt, recently promoted, has more than just murders to deal with as those who work for him resent him as do his superiors who think he's not up to the job. And he and Charlotte have bought a new house, depending on his raise. And then there's sister Emily's husband Jack running for political office and Mama's ongoing relationship with an actor. With her historical insights into late Victorian London and well developed characters, Perry nevertheless weaves into her plot a timeless issue as much a problem today as it was in Victorian times - one which provides a motive for murder!
