Bethlehem Road

When Members of Parliament are murdered crossing Westminster Bridge, Thomas and Charlotte Pit must sift through the many suspects to find the killer—before he strikes again
In the few minutes it takes to cross Westminster Bridge, Sir Lockwood Hamilton has his throat slit and is tied securely to the lamppost with his evening scarf. The killer then vanishes without being seen. Inspector Thomas Pitt thinks the motive might have been personal . . . or political. When a second Member of Parliament is murdered in the same way, politics appear to be the reason. Soon the suspect list includes anarchists and suffragettes. Public outrage mounts and fear grips London and Parliament after a third lamppost murder.
Deep in his end of the investigation, Pitt must rely on his wife, Charlotte, and Great-aunt Vespasia to explore the drawing rooms of the upper class for clues to the mystery. With burning social issues swirling around them, the three of them must solve the case before another MP falls victim to the Westminster cutthroat.
Rezension
“[In Bethlehem Road] Perry uses well-mannered prose, satiric wit, and a fine sense of place and time to construct a completely believable and human world. A sterling performance and a collection must.” —Library Journal
“When Anne Perry puts Thomas and Charlotte Pitt on the case, we are in exemplary Victorian company.” —The New York Times
“When it comes to the Victorian mystery, Anne Perry has proved that nobody does it better.” —The San Diego Union-Tribune
“The period detail remains fascinating, and [Anne Perry’s] grasp of Victorian character and conscience still astonishes.” —The Plain Dealer
“Pitt’s compassion and Charlotte’s cleverness make them compatible sleuths, as well as extremely congenial characters . . . Perry has the gift of making [the Victorian era] all seem immediate and very much alive.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
