The First Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Novel

From the back:
"While the Ellison girls were out paying calls and drinking tea like proper Victorian ladies, a maid in their own household was strangled to death. Quiet, young Inspector Pitt found no one above suspicion - and his investigation at the staid Ellison home cause many a composed facade to crumble into far-from-elegant panic.

But it was not panic beating in the heart of pretty Charlotte Ellison. And something more than brutal murder was on Inspector Pitt's mind. Yet such a romance between a society girl and so unsuitable a suitor was impossible in the midst of a murder..."

I already know Anne Perry’s detective pair William and Hester Monk. Inspector Thomas Pitt and (his future wife) Miss Charlotte Ellison are nice new acquaintances. In this first Thomas Pitt novel, they meet for the first time when Inspector Pitt investigates the murders of young women near Charlotte’s home.

All the murdered girls are familiar to Charlotte, and the last victim is her sister. Thomas Pitt repeatedly visits Ellisons' home as an investigator. The family despises him, after all, the police does not belong to the same social class as Ellisons but are somewhere between honorable people and criminals and the poor. Pitt doesn’t care about humiliation and insults, but persists to find the culprit by eliminating potential murderers. He is equally persistanthe in his quest to achieve Charlotte’s trust and even love.

The book constantly underlines the class differences and patriarchy of Victorian society. Even less would have made them clear. The plot progressed mostly as seen from the living room of the Ellisons. Charlotte’s love life played a big role in the novel. I might have prefered a more exciting crime story to love story, but yes, I liked this novel.
