This review is from: Belgrave Square (A Victorian murder mystery) (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'
