In the posh London street of Paragon Walk, an unspeakable crime is committed: A young woman is brutally raped and murdered.

Once again, that incomparable team of sleuths Inspector Thomas Pitt and his young wife, Charlotte, set themselves against a vicious murderer. As the elegant masks of the wellborn suspects slip, it becomes appallingly clear that something ugly lurks behind the handsome façades of Paragon Walk–something that may lead to more scandal, and more murder.

Library Journal

Residents of Paragon Walk tighten their lips when Inspector Pitt begins his investigation after young Fannie Nash is murdered. In the third in Perry's Victorian crime series, Pitt's wife, Charlotte, collects the inside line on Paragon Walk's society with the help of her sister, Emily, Lady Ashworth, a Walk resident. If descriptions of apparel made character, these ladies would come alive; the timbre of Davina Porter's narration fits these people like afternoon tea. Fans of the British cozy might have the patience for this one; others may pass. Sandy Glover, West Linn P.L., OR Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
