Publisher's Summary

The Cater Street Hangman is the first of Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries. Set in the Victorian era, it is an elegant and complex mystery full of well-drawn characters and rich period detail. When a maid in the upper class Ellison household is strangled, Inspector Pitt is called in to investigate. He finds a world ruled by strict manners and social customs, where the inhabitants of the Ellison's neighborhood appear to be more outraged by the thought of scandal than they are by murder. Inspector Pitt finds a most unlikely ally in Charlotte, the Ellison's spirited daughter. But as the murders continue, Charlotte and Pitt find themselves drawn together by more than the investigation.

Any additional comments?

If you like English Who-dun-its.. you'll like this! The characters are human and Ms Perry's mind is inventive. I've listened to all the available audio's in this series and have always been pleased. The only constructive criticism I could even begin to offer, is that the book's endings are always abrupt. Once the crime is solved, that is it! No nice "wrap up" ... but, the stories are great.. characters likeable and crimes ... unusual. Yes, I'd recommend the series.

I really like this book but it's not for everone

I really like this book. I actually started with her second book first then I went back to her first book. Her books are definitely not for everyone. Most of the story is about the Victorian era with the mystery as the back drop. So a lot of the story will be dialogue among the people of the household and day to day events. I think some people could find this quite boring it they like the true type of mystery stories or a fast paced story. I thought her second book left a lot of the smaller stories in the book not finished and the story ended abruptly. This book also ended abruptly but with all the smaller stories completed. I discovered this author after reading some of the reviews for Masie Dobbs. I think anyone that like the Masie Dobbs series will also like this type of book and visa versa.
