A MUST for Anne Perry lovers!!

She's done it again, by gum. For those unfamiliar w this author, she uses the strict mores and rules -- as well as the class system -- of Victorian England to further the action of the story. Not only is there a murder or 2, but police were considered quite low class, so our hero can go to seedy places for information, while his higher-born wife can infiltrate "society" to do the same.

Simultaneously, we learn a lot about how this social and political system worked or didn't work, and it's impossible (for me, at least) not to observe that the strictures placed upon women during that time are not so "gone" as we would like to believe.

Silence in Hanover Close

This is my favorite so far of the Thomas Pitt series. I loved the ending. I absolutely never saw it coming.
