Charlotte and Thomas Pitt are out to the theater, what starts as a pleasant enough night, ends in murder. A judge, involved in a sensational case, 5 years ago, that involves an actresses brother started everything and seems to refuse to go away. Mr. Justice Stafford has been poisoned! Thomas and his wife, as well as her network of relatives and friends, does their best to ferret out the truth. There are many turns and twists, with a few romances along the way. If you are a fan of Victorian mystery's, this is right up your Alley! I always enjoy a visit to Thomas and Charlotte Pitt's world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I enjoy the peek Perry gives us of the Victorian values and life style. Farrier's Lane is not my favorite of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, but it was entertaining. I like the earlier books better, but all are entertaining.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
