When the womanizing aristocrat George March is found dead over his morning coffee, the immediate concern of his shocked Cardington Crescent household is quieting the scandal as discreetly—and quickly—as possible. Unfortunately for March’s wife, Emily, that means accusing her of the murder. But the family does not take into account Emily’s beloved sister, who is none other than the indomitable Charlotte Pitt. Together, Charlotte and her husband, police inspector Thomas Pitt, take on the seemingly irreproachable, upper-crust March clan and uncover an insidious web of corruption and depravity that leads them from the elegant Crescent town house to the hideous London slums, and from genteel society to murder—again.

Love Anne Perry's books, plan to read them all!
Having just discovered Anne Perry, I have been reading the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series in order. Thus far, Cardington Crescent is the absolute best in terms of character development, twists of plot and drama. A wonderful read.
Enjoyed this one. Somehow missed it in the past.
If you are an Anne Perry fan, you will find this book as interesting as the rest of her series.
