The 12th mystery in the beloved Inspector and Charlotte Pitt Victorian mystery series. When a moneylender named William Weems is murdered, there is discreet rejoicing among those whose meager earnings he devoured. But the plot thickens when Inspector Pitt finds a list of London’s distinguished gentlemen in Weems’ office.
"Perry once again weaves social history and a well-plotted puzzle to moving effect." (Publishers Weekly)
"The masterful Perry again re-creates Victorian London, where Inspector Pitt strives to solve the murder of a usurer with sinister connections to several distinguished gentlemen." (Library Journal)

The Best of Perry and Porter
I have read/listened to the entire Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series via Audible. This last book performed by Davina Porter is the most complex and beautifully read. The characters come vividly alive under Davina Porters truly talented reading. The complexity of the plot still brought surprises at the end. As a note for readers going forward in the series the next nine books are MIA's and when you rejoin the series it will be read by Micheal Page. Mr. Page may be talented, but not nearly as effective as Ms. Porter in bringing the characters alive and does not do justice to Ms. Perry's skill in character creation.
The best Anne Perry yet!
