bluegate fields review
You first open up to chapter 1 of Bluegate Fields by Anne Perry to the plot. Inspector Thomas Pitt had gotten a call from a sewer watcher that there was pushed up against one of the gates. Inspector Pitt found the naked and sexually abused body of sixteen year old Arthur Waybourne. This was a time period in England when there was a rich side and a poor side to every town. When Arthur was pulled out of the sewer, he was defiantly from the upper part of town. Inspector Pitt is a simple man with a loving wife named Charlotte and two children. He is not cold hearted . He understands what grief the Waybournes are feeling because of Arthur¿s death. Charlotte does occasionally enjoy joining her husband in his cases. For example she went to her mothers to see if anyone in her family knew anyone by the name of Waybourne. When in fact that was some what of a hint to solving this mystery. Charlotte also cares deeply about the Waybourne¿s situation. Anne Perry includes such detail in this book. In this example, she describes when Inspector Pitt is entering the sewer. Her wording makes you see the darkness of the underground sewer system. ¿As the gloom closed in on him, the coursing water below sounded louder. He could smell the stale entombed water.¿'Perry 1' This book is defiantly for a young adult who has a large attention spand. Bluegate Fields is a fairly large book. I think it is too long. I think she could have shortened it in at least fifty pages less. But never the less it is still a trilling book to read. The Waybourne family believes that Arthur¿s tutor Jemone committed the murder. But Pitt and Charlotte believe differently and go with their instinct. Then the real killer will be found.
