Overview

When an obscure moneylender named William Weems is murdered in the humble Clerkenwell district, there are no mourners—and there is more than a little discreet rejoicing among those whose meager earnings he so mercilessly devoured. Yet when Inspector Pitt finds in the murdered man’s office a list containing the names of some of London’s most distinguished gentlemen, he begins to realize the magnitude of his duty. William Weems, it transpires, was no common usurer but a vicious blackmailer. Fortunately, Pitt’s clever, well-born wife, Charlotte, has entrée to London’s best society. Her insights prove to be invaluable to Pitt’s investigation as she observes, at glittering balls and over gossipy tea tables, a world of passion, power, and greed that the police are seldom permitted to see.

I am a loyal fan of Ms. Perry having read quite a few of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series. Here we have a very good story which really exposes the complexity of Charlotte. There is no question that she loves Pitt, but she has a true affinity for society which he is not a part of. Would she be happier in society? She is all too willing to move forward without Pitt and the children. She does come across as selfish. Charlotte and Pitt actually argue and hopefully she understands how her actions hurt him. Aunt Vespasia gives her good advice. Hopefully she follows it. You need to nurture what is important.
