Queen Victoria herself presents the head of England's top investigative force, Thomas Pitt, with his most high stakes case yet in the 32nd installment of the New York Times best-selling series by Anne Perry. When Thomas Pitt is summoned to Queen Victoria's private chambers, he hardly knows what to expect. When she tells him that the body of one of her closest confidants - Sir John Halberd - has been found in the Serpentine, he knows he is facing his most daunting and dangerous investigation yet. Sir John was a man who kept many secrets, moving within a circle of the most powerful and prominent members of London society. And the more Pitt learns about Sir John's past, the more he puts himself and his loved ones at risk. The royal family cannot be denied, but will the most important case of Pitt's career be his last?

Murder on the Serpentine
Although it was an excellent rendition, I can't give an answer to this question...I listen to audio books because my eyes become strained when I read.
I found the plot very interesting and it was also very well developed and articulated. It has been some years since I read a book by Anne Perry, and reading this book, I felt she has become a master story teller. Mystery and suspense is by far my favourite genre, and yet I found her approach was quite innovative.
This was my introduction to Jenny Sterlin, but I enjoyed listening to her so much that I look forward to listening to other books read by her.
I pass on this one!
