Publisher's Summary

Gripping and provocative, the latest Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery by New York Times best-selling author Anne Perry peers unflinchingly into the corrupt affairs of Victorian society on the brink of the century's turn.

The world is poised for social and political change, but England holds tight to its traditions, classes, and prejudices. When an explosion in London kills two policemen and seriously injures three more, many believe that anarchists are the culprits. But Thomas Pitt, commander of Special Branch, knows the city's radical groups well enough to suspect otherwise: that someone with decidedly more personal motives lit the deadly fuse.

As he investigates the source of the fatal blast, he's stunned to discover the bombing was a calculated strike against the ranks of law enforcement. But still more shocking revelations await as Pitt's inquiries lead him to a member of Parliament hoping for a lucrative business deal, a high-ranking police officer with secrets to keep and an aristocratic opium addict seeking murderous revenge. As he pursues each increasingly threatening lead, Pitt finds himself impeded at every turn by the barriers put in place to protect the rich and powerful - barriers which, as they start to crumble, threaten to bury him alive.

A suggestion

Story was interesting but was put off by the female voice for Inspector Pitt.
His character would have been better served.

Fire The Narrator

Do not use this Narrator. Listening was not enjoyable a grating strident affected voice. Too bad. Where is Davina Porter or Micheal Paige? A poor narrator takes away from the enjoyment of an entertaining and well written novel. Had difficulty finishing the book.

disappointing

A potentially good story not helped by belabored descriptions of character motivations and an overheated reading. The behavior of the characters in the courtroom was truly unbelievable.
I generally enjoy the author's work & the narrator's, but this, to me, is not a good example.

One of my go-to rereads☺

I really do like Jenny Sterlin, she does the best Lady Vespsia around. I feel that this may be one of Pitt's most emotionally challenging cases as he searches for information that might shake the judicial system, and damage his long friendship with Inspector Tallman.

Good stuff!

Compelling!

this Anne Perry book has much to do with the modern-day things that we are dealing with in our politics and in our safety in the United States. It is very insightful!

One of her best stories

What did you love best about Treachery at Lancaster Gate?

I liked how the story slowly unfolded, and how Pitt and Telman had to face some disturbing facts.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think Telman was my favorite. His idealism was tested. It was nice to see something about his relationship with Gracie also.

Any additional comments?

My only disappointment with the book was the ending. It was a little too pat and not quite believable.

Wonder story telling

Jenny Sterling is the perfect narrator. If she is ever replaced I will no longer be able to listen to Thomas and Charlotte Pitt novels!

A century ago, yet so current...

Lives matter...all lives. Immigrant lives, poor lives, addicted lives. At the turn of the century in 1898, politics, greed, corruption, and blatantly false premises were front and center to be sorted with not only justice but also mercy. Excellent story and performance!
