Betrayal at Lisson Grove (2010)

This mystery kept me reading all the way to the end. It started with a fast-paced chase and even ended with action. It's a historical mystery set in 19th century London but travels to France and Ireland and back. There are multiple plots between Charlotte Pitt, her husband Thomas Pitt, and Victor...

Betrayal at Lisson Grove (2010) by Anne Perry

Acceptable Loss. by Anne Perry (2011)

Like all of the William Monk books, this was gripping from start to finish (except for the repetitious mental torment scenes that have always been the downside of Perry's novels for me). Perry writes atmosphere so well, the crimes are hideous, and Monk and Hester continue to be some of my favouri...

Acceptable Loss. by Anne Perry (2011) by Anne Perry

Acceptable Loss (2011)

Ok, so it seems that I have made a mistake. It looks like "Acceptable Loss" is a continuation of "Execution Dock", which I have not read. What is more, "Acceptable Loss" is my first book ever by Anne Perry. Will there be more? A few weeks ago when I started I would have said: "never again"... It ...

Acceptable Loss (2011) by Anne Perry

Midnight at Marble Arch. Anne Perry (2013)

Anne Perry is know for tackling some of the vilest, darkest subjects that occurred behind closed doors, out in the streets, and in the halls of government of Victorian London. This book was no exception. It actually is a bit different from the last few that Pitt and the others have investigated...

Midnight at Marble Arch. Anne Perry (2013) by Anne Perry

Midnight at Marble Arch (2013)

Led on by Anne Perry’s latest Christmas novelette, which was a lot less verbiose and repetitive and just plain silly about clues and procedures than the previous one, I did read “A Christmas Hope.” Then, because I have always liked her main series characters, particularly the women, Charlotte Pit...

Midnight at Marble Arch (2013) by Anne Perry

Treason at Lisson Grove (2010)

I love historical fiction, especially when there is real history behind it. This story is not based on a particular event, as far as I know, but the knowledge I gained reading 1848 helped me to understand the wild revolutionary ideas that were loose all over Europe in the period after those revo...

Treason at Lisson Grove (2010) by Anne Perry

Lisson Grove (2010)

As always, I love the interaction and blending of social mores and the politics of the times. In this case, so much was happening with the spread of the socialist movement which finally reached England. The first part of the book deals with Monk until Charlotte gets involved and goes off with ...

Lisson Grove (2010) by Anne Perry

Execution Dock (2009)

I find the whole thing rather depressing, no matter how well written. Enough with the sexual depravity already. I was dismayed to find the next in the series was just a continuation of the storyline in this book. I certainly don't deny it existed, but surely there is other interesting subject ...

Execution Dock (2009) by Anne Perry

Justicia Ciega (2013)

William and Hester Monk investigate a preacher who averts funds from his congregation and throws many into dire poverty. As his trial unfolds, Judge Oliver Rathbone presides over the case. The Judge decides to play a wild card in the form of an inflammatory picture to save the day. He is jaile...

Justicia Ciega (2013) by Anne Perry

Blind Justice (2013)

London, England. 1865.William and Hester Monk's dear friend the brilliant lawyer Sir Oliver Rathbone is in trouble. His wife, the former Margaret Ballinger has left him and is furious with him for not having properly defending her father the late Arthur Ballinger.Sir Oliver has been elevated to t...

Blind Justice (2013) by Anne Perry

Du sang sur la soie (2011)

I purchased this book hoping to read about a fresh, lush, complex Constantinople through the eyes of a woman clothed in layers of secrecy. I did not find it: the narrative was weak, jumping over all the delicious little "difficult" pieces of the main character's journey to emphasize discussions b...

Du sang sur la soie (2011) by Anne Perry

The Sheen of Silk (2000)

Perry is a skilled storyteller masterfully weaving historical facts and cultural tradition into very readiable text. As the contributing sub-plots build. the reader is moved to think that the politics of greed and human behavior has not altered much since 1281. Found myself routing for the re...

The Sheen of Silk (2000) by Anne Perry

The Sheen on the Silk (2010)

I think the concept was interesting, without giving too much away. Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres. I enjoyed reading it but I felt like the main character wasn't really the main character. So I wasn't really able to connect to the person who was supposed to be holding the story ...

The Sheen on the Silk (2010) by Anne Perry

Mémoire coupable (2009)

Notes to self (ran out of space in notes space): what the hell is up with Margaret? seems very superior and holier than thou; why is she still helping the clinic?Claudine: match-seller; showdown with husbandSqueaky: becoming more ethical and attached to clinic peopleSutton: Love him and the ...

Mémoire coupable (2009) by Anne Perry

La Révélation de Noël (2006)

This is a small book and it only took me a day really to read it although I started it last night. I ended today around noon. The story is set in the year 1895 in Ireland. Although the story was interesting in itself, it ended leaving many questions unanswered. The main character, who had travell...

La Révélation de Noël (2006) by Anne Perry

Der Weihnachtsfluch (2006)

Book #6 in Anne Perry's Victorian Christmas mysteries. It is 1868, and Emily Radley is called away from the comforts of Christmas in London with her family, to attend her dying Aunt Susannah who lives in Connemara, on Ireland's west coast. Emily is reluctant to leave home, but with her husband's ...

Der Weihnachtsfluch (2006) by Anne Perry

A Christmas Grace (2006)

This was different from the previous novels and I really liked it. Charlotte Pitt's sister, Emily, goes to Ireland to stay with their dying aunt and help solve the riddle of an old murder so the aunt can die in peace. But history seems to be repeating itself as a similar situation unfolds. Emi...

A Christmas Grace (2006) by Anne Perry

Le Spectacle de Noël (2013)

This book is a clever riff on the "Dracula" plot by Bram Stoker, as well as an engaging murder mystery set in an isolated mansion, cut off by a snowstorm, amidst a theatrical company and a wealthy family. It is also centred on the sympathetic and engaging character of Caroline Fielding, the moth...

Le Spectacle de Noël (2013) by Anne Perry

A Christmas Homecoming (2011)

In retrospect maybe reading this book in August wasn't the best idea, but in my defense, I had just just bought my first three Christmas presents and my thoughts were on the holidays. But, in truth, I think that my reaction to the book would have been the same if I had read it on Christmas Eve j...

A Christmas Homecoming (2011) by Anne Perry

Der Weihnachtsverrat (2013)

As usual, Perry has produced a good, quick reading mystery, involving one of my favorite characters, Victor Narraway, as a young, newly posted lieutenant to Cawnpore. We have a slight introduction to frontier life in India and some aspects of military posting there. I gave this book 4 stars as ...

Der Weihnachtsverrat (2013) by Anne Perry

Un Noël à Kanpur (2014)

A Christmas Garland by Anne Perry is the tenth of her Christmas mystery novellas. All are set in the mid-1800s at the Christmas season, and enhance the “back stories” of characters from her Thomas & Charlotte Pitt or William Monk Victorian mystery series.It’s December 1857 in Cawnpore, India wher...

Un Noël à Kanpur (2014) by Anne Perry

The Christmas Hope (2013)

Perry's quick, simple and pleasant Christmas book for 2013 is a straightforward story featuring one of the characters in the Monk series. Protagonist Claudine volunteers in the clinic for street women. In this book she is in her privileged life at a holiday party when she witnesses a murder. The ...

The Christmas Hope (2013) by Anne Perry

Un noël plein d'espoir (2011)

Bon, soyons clairs, ce n'est pas le meilleur Anne Perry que j'ai lu. Comme toujours pour ses "spécial Noel", le héros du livre est un personnage secondaire de l'une de ses deux séries. Cette fois c'est l'ennemi intime de Monk qui s'y colle. Le début est très prometteur, notamment parce qu'il expl...

Un noël plein d'espoir (2011) by Anne Perry

Das Weihnachtsversprechen (2010)

Another one of the best entries in this series--although the Cockney dialect may take a while for your mind's ear to "hear," the story is charming. It features Gracie Phelps from one of Perry's mystery series and the mysterious Mr. Balthasar, whom I'd like to read more about! The book also made m...

Das Weihnachtsversprechen (2010) by Anne Perry

A Christmas Hope (2013)

Claudine Burroughs lives an empty life. She is like a strangr to her openly ambitious husband and she dreads the society parties, balls, and teas of her wealthy, socially prominent friends. The only joy she has is in her volunteer work at a women's clinic for poor women which her husband sees a...

A Christmas Hope (2013) by Anne Perry

A Christmas Odyssey. Anne Perry (2010)

An interesting plot about an unlikely band of strangers trying to find a prodigal son lost in the underworld of Victorian London. But it has very little to do with Christmas, aside from the dates of their search. And the tale itself is repetitive, dull and confusing, with an unfortunate focus o...

A Christmas Odyssey. Anne Perry (2010) by Anne Perry

L'odyssée de Noël (2010)

I love Anne Perry books, but this one felt disjointed. It's the second holiday book I've read with Rathbone as the lead character.It's a short book and I don't know if that's why it didn't feel developed? I couldn't get a fully developed mental picture while reading it, which I usually can.Most o...

L'odyssée de Noël (2010) by Anne Perry

Death in the Devil's Acre (1987) by Anne Perry

The Face of a Stranger (2011)

After reading more than 1700 pages through the last two volumes, it was time to get away from Safehold, which must be thousands of years in the future, and the next-read mystery from the last century wasn’t enough, so I dipped into this Victorian mystery, scrounged from a hospital waiting room, a...

The Face of a Stranger (2011) by Anne Perry

Southampton Row (2002)

It is a given that I am a fan of Anne Perry. That said, suffice it to say, this installment of the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series did not disappoint. Pitt has been called in to covertly look into the activities of a very popular political candidate named Charles Voisey who belongs to a secret...

Southampton Row (2002) by Anne Perry

The Whitechapel Conspiracy (2002)

Ce livre fait partie de la saga « Charlotte et Thomas Pitt » et c’en est même le 19ème opus ! Autant vous le dire tout de suite, c’est avec ce livre que j’ai découvert l’auteur et la saga et le fait de ne pas connaître l’historique des différentes enquêtes menées par le couple ne m’a pas manqué.P...

The Whitechapel Conspiracy (2002) by Anne Perry

Ashworth Hall (1997)

Patron Review:This mystery is one of a series of Anne Perry's who-dunnits that features the Scotland Yard detective, Thomas Pitt, and his wife Charlotte.l Her mysteries are really interesting because they are, at the same time, historical novels that recreate life in late 19th and early 20th cen...

Ashworth Hall (1997) by Anne Perry

La conspiración de Ashworth Hall (1999)

La conspiración de Ashworth Hall (1999) by Anne Perry

A Christmas Secret (2006)

I chose this book in my local library, partly because it was short(!) and partly because I had never read anything by Anne Perry. I did not have particularly high hopes for the book, but I was pleasantly surprised. The central characters are Dominc Corde and his wife, Clarice. Dominic is chosen b...

A Christmas Secret (2006) by Anne Perry

The Twisted Root (2000)

Anne Perry uses the cultural mores of the 18th century as the backdrop for her books, and in The Twisted Root the reader is delivered into a time when cultural taboos leave a woman ready to die rather than tell what she knows about three murders that she has been charged with committing. Even tho...

The Twisted Root (2000) by Anne Perry

Slaves of Obsession (2001)

Slaves of Obsession is a frustrating book. Clearly a murder mystery (as are all in this series), the murderer proves to be the most likely suspect for me but not the villain I wanted it to be. To be sure, there is a certain poetic justice which occurs with regard to the one I consider a villain, ...

Slaves of Obsession (2001) by Anne Perry

Callander Square (1985)

Attention, pour celles et ceux qui n’auraient pas encore lu (ou terminé) L’Étrangleur de Cater Street, cette chronique contient des spoilers.Après avoir trouvé l’Étrangleur de Cater Street, Charlotte et Thomas sont de nouveau confrontés à la noirceur humaine : des nourrissons ont été enterrés dan...

Callander Square (1985) by Anne Perry

Bluegate Fields (1985)

Bluegate Fields go a bit deeper in the Victorian underworld than most of Charlotte and Pitt's stories. Unlike the previous story where Charlotte and her family took center stage, in this one it is Pitt, his boss and his young colleague who are the primary investigators. Charlotte is still a much ...

Bluegate Fields (1985) by Anne Perry

A Dangerous Mourning (1992) by Anne Perry

We Shall Not Sleep (2007)

If you are an Anne Perry fan, then probably you'll enjoy this series, since the things that bugged me about it the most were characteristic of one of her other books (from the series with a husband and wife, IIRC). I know there are many Anne Perry fans out there, so maybe it is just me.However, ...

We Shall Not Sleep (2007) by Anne Perry

At Some Disputed Barricade (2007)

I think Anne Perry is one of the finest authors of historical mysteries I have ever read. She has such a fine sense of atmosphere and really delves into the character's lives, personalities and feelings and places them in the most extraordinary situations where every character is tested almost be...

At Some Disputed Barricade (2007) by Anne Perry

Long Spoon Lane (2006)

A decent read, although if you picked this up as your first Anne Perry/Thomas Pitt book, like me, you might find yourself rather confused. There are numerous references thrown in to events in previous novels, and most of the main characters had a lot of history together that is only vaguely hinte...

A Sudden, Fearful Death (1994)

For whatever reason, this story seems disjointed. The first big scene took forever to tie in with the rest of the plot and I'm still not sure it was necessary. The big reveal did not necessarily need Julia and her sister Marianne. The courtroom scenes are tedious and overly drawn out. I suspe...

A Sudden, Fearful Death (1994) by Anne Perry

The Shifting Tide (2005)

I have been “hooked” on Anne Perry novels for a good while now. There are a number of reasons for this addiction. One reason I enjoy these novels as much as I do, is that AP is, to my way of thinking, a master at creating characters with depth to their personalities. This installment in the Willi...

Pentecost Alley (1997)

16th in the series. As is often the case, there is quite a dramatic crescendo at the ending of this installment, and several plot turns and twists to sustain curiosity. As I enjoy so much consistently in the series, we get plenty of details of social behavior, etiquette, and accepted rules of i...

A Christmas Guest is the third book in Anne Perry's Christmas mystery series.

Shoulder the Sky (2005)

I intentionally picked this up at the library for 2 reasons: I recently discovered Anne Perry's books and have decided she is one of my newfound favorite authors - and the book's subject centered around World War I, an event about which I know very little. It turns out I started with the second b...

Shoulder the Sky (2005) by Anne Perry

No Graves As Yet (2005)

No Graves As Yet, the initial volume in Anne Perry’s WWI series, begins with a cricket match. Somehow that is appropriate because this book took me longer to finish than a long, drawn-out cricket match. The pace is slow and leisurely and the handling of the characters is ever so much more persona...

No Graves As Yet (2005) by Anne Perry

Bedford Square (2000)

Bedford Square (2000) by Anne Perry

The Sins of the Wolf (1995)

I can't help but feel slightly geeky, giving a 4 star rating to a murder mystery. But Anne Perry is one of the best mystery writer I've ever come across. Her understanding of the Victorian Period - the fashions, the attitudes, the prejudices - is absolutely perfect and it shows in the books.This ...

The Sins of the Wolf (1995) by Anne Perry

Dark Assassin (2007)

William Monk is a Thames River Police superintendent on a patrol boat when he notices a young couple standing at a bridge railing, apparently engaged in an intense discussion.

Funeral in Blue (2001)

This book was more annoying than enjoyable, but funnily enough, I will read another of her books, out of curiosity, to see if the earlier ones were any better written."Funeral in Blue" is a William Monk mystery set in Victorian England. William Monk is a former policeman who is now a private inve...

Resurrection Row (1986)

Fourth in the Charlotte & Thomas Pitt historical mystery series set in Victorian England and revolving around an unlikely couple.My TakeTwisty. Perry sure went to a lot of work on this one.

The Cater Street Hangman is the first Charlotte & Inspector Pitt novel by Anne Perry.

Highgate Rise (1992)

Anne Perry is one of the authors I routinely look for at book sales, and so I read rather old titles such as this one from 1991. I like her Thomas and Charlotte Pitt very much. They are a loving couple who understand each other, and although Pitt is a cop and their income is low, Charlotte is o...

Anne Perry's Christmas Vigil (2011)

James Wentworth had an air of weariness in his face that made him look older than his sixty-odd years.

Since his promotion to command of the Bow Street station Pitt had not involved himself in cases personally unless they threatened to be embarrassing to someone of importance, or else politically dangerous, s...

A Breach of Promise

He and Monk had gone immediately to Melville’s lodgings, where Isaac Wolff, gray-faced, had met them at the door. There had been nothing anyone could do to help. He had called a doctor, who had assumed death to have been caused by some form of poison and had guessed belladonna, but it would requi...

Corridors of the Night (2015)

It was a handsome and cultured city, but Scottish law was different from English, and always had been, and he found testifying – albeit as an expert witness on an old case – to be somewhat testing of both his skill and his memory.     He had taken a short holiday afterwards in...

The Silent Cry

He was a young man whose lack of self-control, first of his appetites, then of his temper, had led him from rape to the situation of murder which he now faced.     Curiously, it was the beatings for which Monk could not forgive him.     They, of all the cri...

Treachery at Lancaster Gate (2016)

There was tea on a tray on the carved cherrywood table, and small sandwiches of white bread, with wafer-thin slices of cucumber from the glasshouse. She stared at her sister, Charlotte. “Oh dear,” she said quietly. “Yes, I do know Cecily Duncannon, but not very well.” “Then please get to know her...

One Thing More

It cost her dearly because she felt self-conscious and foolish, but it was the only one she could think of which was ordinary and common to all. ‘A lover!’ Amandine said with a smile, looking up from peeling vegetables. Célie’s mind flew to Georges, for no reason at all, and she felt the heat bur...

The Scroll

In the antiquarian bookshop well away from the High Street in Cambridge, Monty Danforth sat in his room at the back, working on unpacking and cataloguing the books and papers from the last crate of the Greville Estate. Most of it was exactly what he would have expected: the entire works of Dicken...

A Christmas Promise (2009)

Gracie got up early, before anyone else was awake, and crept into the kitchen, where she cleared out the stove, and tipped the ashes on the path outside to help people from slipping on the hard, pale ice. Then she laid the wood and lit the new fire. She balanced the sticks carefully and blew a li...

Buckingham Palace Gardens

He wrote a brief message on a card, saying that he wished to consult on a matter of the most extreme urgency, and asked one of the junior clerks to take it to Somerset Carlisle, wherever he might be. Then he waited, pacing the floor, glancing every few moments at each doorway of the vast antecham...

Dorchester Terrace (2012)

Pitt said he had asked the doctor to keep his own counsel regarding the conclusion that her death could not have been accidental. He said he had given the doctor his word that the death would not be investigated by the police, but by Special Branch, because of its possible connection with a curre...

The Angel Court Affair (Thomas Pitt 30)

After seventeen years of marriage she thought she knew him well, and herself even better. But most of the remarks the woman had made, and perhaps even more the burning conviction with which she had spoken, awoke in Charlotte too many awkward questions. Why had she never examined her own thoughts ...

A New York Christmas (2014)

She had chosen different clothes from the ones she’d had on when she was here with Harley, and she’d pinned her hair up in as different a style as it would take. She had planned what to say. She was less than satisfied with it, but all the alternatives she could think of were even worse. It was a...

A Christmas Escape (2015)

The mountain rose sharply, as symmetrical and uncomplicated as a child’s drawing. The sky above was midwinter blue. At home in England they would be expecting snow at this time in December, but here, so close to Sicily, the wind off the salt water was mild. The small boat barely rocked. He had be...

The Dark Assassin

She packed up Rose's borrowed clothes and returned them. Her army experiences had taught her something of the suffering incurred after overindulgence in alcohol, and she knew how to minister to those afflicted. She spent several hours doing what she could for Rose, to both her and her husband's i...

Revenge in a Cold River (2016)

Not a breath of wind stirred the surface. The only movement was the occasional wash of a boat going up or downstream, all but silently. The voices of lightermen calling to one another echoed, and the splash of an oar could be heard. Now and then a water bird dived for a fish. It broke the smooth ...
