“When Anne Perry puts Thomas and Charlotte Pitt on the case, we are in exemplary Victorian company.” - New York Times

“Pitt’s compassion and Charlotte’s cleverness make them compatible sleuths, as well as extremely congenial characters . . . Perry has the gift of making [the Victorian era] all seem immediate and very much alive.” - Philadelphia Inquirer

“Perry combines murder with a profile of the morals and manners of Victorian society . . . Murder fans who prefer their crimes with a touch of class should heat some scones and nestle back for the afternoon.” - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
