Another good mystery from the writings of Anne Perry. A Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel set in Victorian England. Definitely a good read.

Decent murder mystery with Thomas Pitt as the lead investigator.
The case involves the murder of three prostitutes, a suspect from a wealthy London family and members of a secret society. Pitt is assisted by his wife Charlotte and her sister Emily.
