Murder just doesn't happen in fashionable areas like Callander Square, let alone twice. The police are baffled, but pretty, young Charlotte Ellison Pitt is curious. Although Inspector Thomas Pitt's well-bred new wife doesn't often meddle in her husband's work, something about this case intrigues her. In this second book of Anne Perry's long running Victorian mystery series, staid and proper Charlotte is suddenly rattling the closets of the very rich, seeking out backstairs gossip that would shock a barmaid, and unearthing truths that could push even the most proper aristocrat to murder.
"Murder fans who prefer their crimes with a touch of class should heat some scones and nestle back for the afternoon."—Atlanta Journal-Constitution
