Resurrection Row is a wonderfully gruesome novel from Anne Perry. Another in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series. Her research into the murky world of digging up corpses from a graveyard to get the police to investigate a murder cannot be faulted. It also shows how Charlotte and her sister Emily can use their social connections to help the police in their investigations.

This is the fourth in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series and is well up to Anne Perry's usual high standard! This one has a particularly ingenious plot and I was delighted to see that the interesting and mildly eccentric Aunt Vespasia is back again. She figured in the previous book, Paragon Walk. Charlotte's brother-in-law, Dominic, figures prominently in this book also.

Perhaps the least satisfying Charlotte & Thomas novel, so far. Again, interesting characters and excellent social detail, but for me the two strands of the mystery did not come together easily. The hook of someone digging up corpses and leaving them in public places was ghoulishly interesting but didn't really mesh with the solution of the murder. Perhaps this was more a social drama than a whodunnit.

The real strength of Anne Perry's Thomas Pitt novels are the sympathetic characters she draws and the way she makes the social history of the Victorian Era palatable for consumption by mixing it with a big dose of mystery. The crime plots themselves are not always that wonderful, but the vividness of the rest of the books draws you along to the end nicely. Pitt and his wife Charlotte's relationship is well drawn and I enjoy the fact that Perry uses it to show the social structures of the day and the class barriers in place. They are intelligently written as a whole although this was one of the weaker plotted offerings in the series.
