This review is from: Midnight at Marble Arch (Hardcover)
I can hardly keep up with Anne Perry as she is so prolific. I have always enjoyed her characterisation of Thomas Pitt and the development of his family and professional relationships.
Yes, she does seem to rathe hang a cause on her characters - this time it is the matter of rape in Victorian England - but I enjoy the way she uses fiction to get across some very good points. Even now it is difficult to report rape. How much so over 100 years ago!
As usual, she has several stories intertwining, and this time there is less of Charlotte, and more of Victor Narraway and of Lady Vespasian.
The denouement is quite unexpected, although she gives enough hints for you to follow.
A very good read which kept me up to finish it.
Now I will wait for the next William Monk!
