Overview

Buckingham Palace Gardens (Thomas and Charlotte Pitt Series #25) by Anne Perry, Michael Page

The Prince of Wales has asked four wealthy entrepreneurs and their wives to Buckingham Palace to discuss a fantastic idea: the construction of a six-thousand-mile railroad that would stretch the full length of Africa. But the prince’s gathering proves disastrous when the mutilated body of a prostitute turns up in a linen closet among the queen’s monogrammed sheets. With great haste, Thomas Pitt, the brilliant mainstay of Special Services, is summoned to resolve the crisis. The Pitts’ cockney maid, Gracie, is also recruited to pose as a palace servant and listen in on the guests’ conversations. If Pitt and Gracie fail to find out who brutally murdered the young woman, Pitt’s career will be over, and the scandal may just cause the monarchy to fall.

Another fantastic Pitt mystery. I love the role of Gracie in this storyline. A quick read.

Numerous mystery authors have chosen the Victorian era as the setting for their stories, but what makes this book (and series) unique is its wonderful character development, engaging plot, and excellent details giving insight into Victorian life and culture. In this book, the mystery occurs inside Buckingham Palace with the Prince of Wales himself a central character. Dirk Pitt must investigate a strange and gruesome murder that takes place in the palace while the Prince is entertaining many prominent and important guests. This book is a fun read- interesting characters, numerous clues and plot twists, and a lead character that is as delightful in the 25th book as he is in the first.

This was the first book that I've read by Anne Perry. My reasoning for choosing it was due to my fascination with the Royal Family and it's history, the english Victorian times, and wanting to read a good mystery. I was pleasantly suprised from the start at the flow of the book and how easy it was to turn page after page and emerse myself deeper in the story. A "murder" in Buckingham Palace? Very unique storyline and I found it very unsuprising how Perry wrote about the Palace being "shut off" from the rest of the world, so NO one on the outside could ever know what's going on within those walls. There was a bit of the old broken english/cockney talk that one had to read maybe out loud to understand what the character was really saying, but it fit the period of the times. Excellent book! I read it in less than a week and will look forward to reading it again.

This is the first of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels where Charlotte and the series secondary characters have minimal impact on the storyline. It is so well written that you don't notice it until you get to the end of the book and realize that they had minimal impact on the entire plot. This is a great addition to a wonderful series of murder mysteries.

Bucking Palace Gardens is yet another intriguing plot from the pen of Anne Perry. Thomas Pitt must again save England from forces that might otherwise rip asunder the cloth that binds the English people and their leaders (This time it's the royal ones.) The plot has enough twists and turns to satisfy the most ardent fan of the red herring. Thomas (Charlotte is barely present.) and the irrepressible Gracie combine forces to solve the knotty question of who killed the Crown Prince's illicit visitor. In addition to the fast moving plot, details of Victorian and royal life enthrall and educate the reader in the most entertaining way. A great read for both Perry fans and those who wish they were!
