5 out of 10

A complicated mystery of Victorian England, with meditations on changing ideas about society and violent crime. Pretty well written, but I think I noticed a few places where there was supposed to be more exposition, and things transitioned roughly.

More importantly, perhaps, I had figured out who done it and why pretty early on. Well, still a pretty good mystery if you are a mystery fan and like period detail.

Journal Entry 5 by wingeponine38wing at Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Friday, July 31, 2015

8 out of 10

Read this several months ago; unfortunately I've forgotten the details, but I enjoyed this very much. I usually read series in order and prior to this had only read the first one where Thomas and Charlotte first meet and fall in love (The Cater Street Hangman).

Midnight at Marble Arch is #28 in the series from this prolific author. Thomas and Charlotte now have a teenage daughter. I look forward going back and filling in the intervening years!

Amazon:
In this superbly accomplished new Charlotte and Thomas Pitt adventure, Anne Perry takes us beneath the glittering surface of wealthy Victorian society into a nightmare world of fear and intimidation, where women are too often blamed for the violent attacks against them, and powerful men take what they want, leaving others to pay the price.

The horrifying rape and apparent suicide of Catherine Quixwood, wife of a wealthy merchant banker, falls outside the jurisdiction of new Special Branch head Thomas Pitt, but so pervasively offensive are the rumors about the victim that Pitt quietly takes a hand in the investigation.

Yet even with the help of his ingenious wife, Charlotte, and his former superior, Victor Narraway, Pitt is stumped. Why did high-minded, cultured Catherine choose not to accompany her husband to a grand party on the night of her demise? Why did she dismiss all her servants for the evening and leave the front door unlocked? What had been her relationship with the young man seen frequently by her side at concerts and art exhibits? And what can be done to avenge another terrible crime: the assault on Angeles Castelbranco, beloved teenage daughter of the Portuguese ambassador?

As an ordinary policeman, Pitt used to enter London’s grand houses through the kitchen door. Now, as a guest in those same houses, can he find the steel in his soul to challenge the great men of the world with their crimes? The path to the truth takes him in deeply troubling directions, from the lofty world of international politics and finance to his own happy home, where his own teenage daughter, Jemima, is coming of age in a culture rife with hidden dangers.

In this rich, emotionally charged masterpiece, Anne Perry exposes yet another ugly secret of Victoria’s proud empire. And in a courtroom battle of unparalleled brilliance, we thrill at the chance to witness a massive wrong righted.
