Kept me guessing about reason for events taking place. Conclusion little bit of a let down, but prevented me from figuring out who dun it until the end. I always enjoy reading Anne Perry as it gives me an image of what it was like during that period. The snobbery of the citizens towards police and police investigations is always interesting. Just a sign of that time.

I have read several of Anne Perry's books. I discovered her mysteries approximately one year ago, and was instantly hooked. She is without question, my favorite author. After reading several of her books, I took a break from them to read some other authors. I take a periodic break from her novels, so I won't go through them too quickly, and will be left with no new ones to read. In any case, I recently picked up Resurrection Row and was engrossed by the time I reached the second page. I hope she never stops writing. Resurrection Row takes the reader back to Victorian England in a manner I've never seen matched. All her novels do the same. I fully trust Ms. Perry's research, and find the lifestyles of the time thouroughly fascinating. I never grow tired of her accounts of the life and times of these characters. Her books are relaxing, yet suspenseful. I highly recommend all her books, even the ones I've not yet read. I'm positive they are all as excellent as the ones I've read. I prefer the Pitt Mysteries over the Monk series. Choose either one and you will not be disappointed.

I have just recently "discovered" Anne Perry. I read her biography and couldn't wait to read her books and now I am addicted. You need to read them in order. Her Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series are great. I've read one of the William Monk books and thoroughly enjoyed it will read more. I also enjoy the Christmas books.

This is the fourth Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mystery by Anne Perry and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed previous books in the series. I think it is because it didn’t have enough of Charlotte involved in the mystery as she has been in previous stories. Set in Victorian London, 1886, this book features the deplorable conditions of the work houses and grave robbing. The only reason I read these stories is for the sheer education one gets about the Victorian era. For example, you realize just how difficult it was to stay warm, in the days long before central heating. ”ice-chill morning room” (p37) and  A fire was already burning strongly, and there was a radiance of warmth from it.” (p38) The propensity for clutter in interior decor is also vivid. "The room was crammed with furniture, photographs, ornaments, an embroidered sampler saying ‘Fear God and do your duty,’ three stuffed birds, a stuffed weasel under glass, an arrangement of dried flowers, and two large, shining, green potted plants. He felt intensely claustrophobic." (p106) Thomas’ wife, Charlotte, is once again reminded of the little luxuries she grew up with when she is out and about in society—and that she gave up when she married a police officer. ”Charlotte sipped the chocolate; she had a weakness for it, but it was something she could not often afford.” (p70) Charlotte is Thomas’ respite from the cold, cruel world of police work and the scenes of their home life with their young daughter, Jemima, paint a lovely picture of domesticity.  In fact, Charlotte helps break Thomas’ case with an enlightening suggestion. I like how Perry presents Charlotte as the strong and admirable woman behind the great man. An enjoyable series for the depiction of everything about Victorian London.

I am on a Ferris wheel that cannot stop, and therefore I have finished number 4 of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series. Charlotte plays a very minor role in this story, but Aunt Vespasia returns. The story centers on corpses tuning up in unlikely place, and one poor corpse must be buried 3 times. Thomas must find the grave robber and the reason for this ghastly deed. Perry evicts talking of fashion in this novel, but spends much time on the plight of the uneducated and poor that frequent the workhouses. When one of the corpses happens to be an artist thought to be visiting Paris, the investigation sizzles. Perry omits much in this novel that sets her apart, such as characterization and setting. The emphasis rests on a few wealthy people attempting to pass legislation to aid the poor citizens of England.

This series just brings a smile to my face. I love the fact that I can feel like I'm in Victorian times. The descriptions of the surroundings, their clothes and the atmosphere is purely splendid. Anne Perry brings a up close and personal view of the past era. The mystery and sleuth finding will keep you turning the pages
