Product Description

From the Back Cover

A VICTIM MOURNED BY NOBODY

The grisly murder of William Weems drew little pity. A ruthless moneylender, he preyed upon the poor of Clerkenwell and was not averse to blackmail when the chance came his way. Few would have taken any notice, had not the Chief of Police at Bow Street been approached by an old friend for a curious favour.

What could link peer of the realm Lord Sholto Byam with the sordid usurer? The situation is delicate enough to call in Bow Street's best, Inspector Thomas Pitt. One thing is soon clear: there are forces at work beyond the common motives of greed and fear of scandal. Can Charlotte Pitt amass enough evidence from her forays into Society to enable her husband to prove the unbelievable truth? Or will the hidden layers of conspiracy triumph, corrupting the Government and justice itself?

"The author has the eyes of a hawk for character nuance and her claws out for signs of criminal injustice"

Format: Paperback
This book is set the year after Jack the Ripper made his mark on London. A money lender is found dead in the back streets and he has be shot with unconventional ammunition. This confusing case leads Inspector Thomas Pitt and Charlotte, his wife, to uncover secret societies and corruption in the highest places. The poorest are being exploited and powerful people are keen to ensure that the identities of slum landlords remain hidden. This book uncovers a powerful love story that has been a closely guarded secret. It is well worth the read and the characters are well drawn if somewhat 'larger than life'

The murder of a unpleasant moneylender is not mourned, particlarly when the person concerned blackmails too. Thomas Pitt is called in when his Senior Officer is asked by a friend to look into the matter. Another good novel by Anne Perry.
