Anne Perry

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Thomas Pitt Mystery, Fiction, Crime & mystery, Historical fiction

The twentieth mystery in the bestselling Inspector Pitt series, by the master storyteller of Victorian society, Anne Perry

The case already reeks of scandal and the body is not even cold. Pitt is the natural choice to investigate what he soon realises is the most unnatural of killings.
