    Disappointing Charlotte has become an afterthought I love this series, but after reading the last two, I m not sure I like the direction it s heading in Charlotte is not even mentioned on the dust jacket to the next book I love Thomas, but I also like having different perspective through Charlotte The Pitt novels started out as a mystery series featuring Thomas and Charlotte It seems to be turning into spy novels focusing mainly on Thomas Unfortunately, not looking forward to the next book as much as usual.

    2.5 stars Ever since Thomas got kicked out of Bow Street and shoved into Special Branch, the books have gone into political intrigues and maneuvers Not sure I like it as much as the previous straight forward murder mysteries.

    An entertaining if at times a bit confusing read The storyline is farfetched at points combining politics, the sensation of the Spiritualist movement and murder most foul Even from the historical fiction point of view the way Spiritualism is presented is too dramatic for it to be a meaningful element This is allowing too for liberties associated with dramatic license A minor complaint probably as it is fiction Popular writers of this type, regardless of the genre they excel at, usually are an acquired taste The obvious style is certainly what has drawn readers back for many works Perry excels indeed, just not my cup of tea Had to throw in one British euphemism at least This selection has to do with a random pick than anything else to satisfy my curiosity This writer came to my attention beyond just awareness of the string of books on the best seller list stand because of a movie Yes, that movie, for those of you who are fans and followers of Anne Perry Heavenly Creatures tells a partially fictionalized account of the writer Anne Perry by her real name as Perry is a nom de plume and a portion of her childhood in New Zealand Dark tale that she has only granted one known interview regarding since her release from prison.A good series of books it seems from this one dip in the pond.

    This was a good enough read but I didn t enjoy it as much as other Thomas Pitt mysteries I read in the past The main problem is that this is a sequel to The Whitechapel Conspiracy , which I haven t read I think I would have understood the characters and background better had I read it before Southampton Row I was also disappointed that Charlotte Gracie were sent on holiday and I did miss their presence a lot Still, it was en enjoyable read and I do love Anne Perry s writing style

    Not her best, I think she is overdoing the inner circle story And if Voisey is so twisted, he needs to get what is coming to him Pretty ridiculous that he and his sister can murder an innocent man, and the authorities know it, with no repercussions.

    Esta novela se centra m s en cuestiones pol ticas, y no tanto en el cr men que se investiga.

    Okay so I m 22 books into this series and I think it may be a love hate with me Actually, I think if they just cut out about 100 pages from the middle, I d totally love the series Because usually I m hooked in the first 100 pages and I can t put it down for the last 100but it drags in the middle Totally true in this case In Victorian England, a divisive election is fast approaching Passions are so enflamed that Thomas Pitt, shrewd mainstay of the London police, has been ordered not to solve a crime but to prevent a national disaster The aristocratic Tory candidate and Pitt s archenemy is Charles Voisey The Liberal candidate is Aubrey Serracold, whose wife s dalliance with spiritualism threatens his chances Indeed, she is one of the participants in a late night s ance that becomes the swan song of a stylish clairvoyant who is found brutally murdered the next morning in her house on Southampton Row Meanwhile, Pitt s wife, Charlotte, and their children are enjoying a country vacation unaware that they, too, are deeply endangered by the same fanatical forces hovering over the steadfast Pitt.

    So glad we are almost back to her old style Although Pitt has another set back Can t wait to see what happens in the next book Pity anyone who reads them out of order.In Victorian England, a divisive election is fast approaching Passions are so enflamed that Thomas Pitt, shrewd mainstay of the London police, has been ordered not to solve a crime but to prevent a national disaster The aristocratic Tory candidate and Pitt s archenemy is Charles Voisey The Liberal candidate is Aubrey Serracold, whose wife s dalliance with spiritualism threatens his chances Indeed, she is one of the participants in a late night s ance that becomes the swan song of a stylish clairvoyant who is found brutally murdered the next morning in her house on Southampton Row Meanwhile, Pitt s wife, Charlotte, and their children are enjoying a country vacation unaware that they, too, are deeply endangered by the same fanatical forces hovering over the steadfast Pitt.

    Interessante come tutti i gialli di AP, storicamente ben costruito anche per quanto riguarda comportamenti individuali e sociali trama coinvolgente, che si risolve come di consueto in una bolla di sapone.Ma ma AP sempre pi radicale nell esporre i sentimenti, il sentire, i moti dell animo C una perentoriet nelle sue affermazioni che lascia quasi imbarazzati la sua partecipazione al dolore, alle tragedie, alle vicissitudini troppo dichiarata, troppo trasparente, e spesso reiterata fino alla noia Una caratteristica che spesso induce a saltare interi paragrafi con un senso di d j lu assai fastidioso edit 1 settembre 2012 Noooo, avevo gi letto anche questo rimosso completamente dalla memoria e riletto in ebook.

    Nothing like coming in at the middle No 22 in a series Now I have to go back and find the first 21 I enjoyed the characters and the plot and the setting and the writing, which in this edition anyway, explores the nature of politics Although it was published in 2002, I found it especially convicting in this Age of Trump Motivations for civil service, affect of power, means of achieving power, difficulty of innocence, danger of naivete.
