Finlay's father--immensely wealthy, powerful, and dangerous--refuses to consider the possibility that his son has been in Ada McKinley's bed. The implication is clear: Pitt is to arrest someone other than Finlay Fitzjames for Ada's demise.
But Thomas Pitt is not a man to be intimidated, and with the help of his quick-witted wife, Charlotte, and her well-connected friends, he stubbornly pursues his investigation--one that twists and turns like London's own ancient streets....
Anne Perry has devised the most intricate mystery of her prolific career in PENTECOST ALLEY, whose brilliant resolution will astonish and satisfy even the most discerning.
From the Hardcover edition.
The ritual murder of a prostitute causes no stir in London. But under the victim's body, the police find a Hellfire Club badge that instantly draws Superintendent Thomas Pitt into the case. A BOMC selection. HC: Fawcett. (Fiction--Mystery)
Repetitious and yet perfunctory in probing the suspects; and bits of the truth, at least, are obvious from the beginning. Still, the mystification, and the intensity of Pitt's dilemma, are genuine. Altogether, Perry's best book since Defend and Betray
