Rated 5 out of 5 by from The first of so many good reads from this author I received this book as a gift and it has me hooked on this series by Anne Perry. I love all the details about Victorian England and I always enjoy a good mystery. Thomas Pitt and his outspoken and soon to be wife Charlotte are an enjoyable couple to watch grow throughout the series and this is our introduction to them and their unusual courtship during a murder investigation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thrilling. This combines three things I love: the Victorian era, romance and a mystery.

However, even when I do guess the ending, the writing style and period details make the journey enjoyable.
