    There has been a rape and murder in Inspector Thomas Pitt’s area; incongruously occurring in the upper class area of Paragon Walk It also happens to be the area where Charlotte’s sister Emily lives with her titled husband and Emily is terrified that the investigation will uncover unsavoury deeds involving GeorgeInspector Pitt’s investigations always do expose sordid personal details along with benign secrets and no one who moves in these circles is keen on having that happen As a result his investigation is prolonged and feels to him like he is continuously going over the same ground with no resultsEmily partly out of fear and Charlotte out of the desire to help ease her sister’s mind find themselves going to as many of the parties and soirees in Paragon Walk as they can It is the Season in London so there are many of themThen someone disappears someone is murdered and the danger of looking too closely at anything in this neighbourhood heightensOnce again we are given a glimpse of the neuroses entitlements and polished prevarications that some segments of society seemed to learn in the nursery When something tragic happens the fingers point first to the staff and servants In the long run however people are people – and as clever as they may think they are at hiding the unspeakable eventually truth catches up to them in the form of Thomas and Charlotte PittI thoroughly enjoyed this second book of a series that first captivated me in the early 2000’s Although I still have a few ‘gaps’ to fill in the series I am happy that there are also books in the series that continue on from where I initially left offAnne Perry’s writing keeps the plot and action flowing at a good pace At the end I did find myself wondering about a couple of the characters and their involvements in certain incidents The ending was definitely a surprise but I also would have liked of a sense of what happens with some of the other characters That is the only reason this received 4 Stars rather than 5 On the other hand since Emily actually lives there these characters may come up again at some point in the future I hope so

    Third in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series in which Thomas does lots of police work and gets nowhere Meanwhile Charlotte succeeds in solving the case although maybe not in the way she intendedI did not enjoy this one as much as the earlier two although it was still an entertaining read I was surprised by the identity of the murderer but there were so many people it could have been The ending was a little disappointing Charlotte is a smart woman and I felt that she acted very out of character in order to set up the denouement Still a pleasant read and I will continue with the series

    People do such strange things to cover their guiltThe wealthy upper crust of Paragon Walk sueezed the mind dulling monotony of friendships and marriage into embarrassments and silence Trivialities and flaws were hidden behind a polished front As much as propriety would permit men were allowed to play their games That is until it lead to murder A darker conflict drove this story The he said she said camaraderie that I was hoping to occur between Thomas and his wife Charlotte was seriously lacking Their baby girl Jemima was written in as a nonplus Actually now that I have the opportunity to think about it Ms Perry has the gift of imagination but lacked the ability to include depth into her characters' relationships The closest this point came into being was between Charlotte and her sister Emily But even then confidences were glossed over This was the third story in this series By now I had expected at minimum to attach myself to the main protagonists I awaited the experience of stepping back in time for clues that make a great historical mystery It may have just come down to personal taste and the correct frame of mind but I was disappointed with Paragon Walk Most likely I will read one book to see if things pick up; if not I am done

    I hope this series improves soon; so far I don’t like it as well as the author’s William Monk mysteries which were written later in her career This book is very weak and I’m not in the least impressed with Thomas Pitt’s sleuthing skillsThe mystery concerns a young woman who has been raped and murdered The Victorian social ill in the spotlight is the blame assigned to rape victims; such things do not happen to virtuous womenThere is still very little here about Thomas and Charlotte’s life together I’m disappointed at the lack of conflict between them considering their disparate social classes Now they have acuired one of those sitcom children who is always asleep or with a babysitter

    This was another good historical mystery from Anne Perry There was plenty of dirt to uncover in the lives of all the characters and it kept me guessing all the way through I was convinced I had it right up until the very end and I didn't But everything fit once I knew all the pieces The ending was just a little abrupt I could have done with even just a paragraph or two to wind it down view spoilerAnd I still want to know who Alaric is hide spoiler

    Perry writes the most amazing conversation among women It is hard to imagine the stress of having to manage one's words as these Victorian age characters did in conversations reuiring multiple levels of meaning Successful wives managed their husbands through clever and hidden strategies Perry's books show tremendous insensitivity among the classes and even between station levels within classes There seemed to be far less value in competence than in income regardless of how it was acuired Rentiers reigned In the Paragon Walk aptly named the aristocracy must cope with murder within its ranks To give her readers access across the classes Perry in her first book married one sister above her station and one below her station to policeman Pitt who came from a servant class and now works with persons in lower classes while providing service to all classes The result is a very interesting view of society during the late 19th century

    Third in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Victorian mystery series revolving around Inspector Thomas Pitt and his very curious wife Charlotte My Take While a young girl is murdered the emphasis is on how it will affect everyone else socially with a number of the neighbors putting all the blame on the girl Well obviously she must have had low morals to have invited rape How do people actually twist their minds to believe something like this? They are like a snarling pack of dogs Ooh that's rather mean To the dogs anywayOf course the unlucky Frenchman living in the neighborhood is the object of all the ladies' interests but the first one at whom the neighbors point a finger Everyone kept mentioning the Dilbridges' peculiar social tastes but no one ever comes out and explains what those tastes are Why would Pitt avoid looking into this?Perry makes an interesting point that Without the discipline of work they had invented the discipline of etiuette It's true the upper classes' lives were so boring that they had to create something at which to work What better than manners so they would have something to occupy their minds as well as a stick to poke at everyone elsePerry has another passage that I thought was very good on the definition of rape versus love Charlotte points out that A strong man a man who is capable of caring does not force a woman He takes love as it is offered knowing that that which is demanded has no meaning The essence of strength is not in overpowering others but in mastering oneselfWhile Emily is thinking of the physical act itself That Selena's rape is acceptable in Selena's mind because to lie willingly is wrong but to be a victim is an excuse and having the best of both worlds innocent of the guilt and yet having the pleasureI rather like discovering how Charlotte is adapting to her new life learning to cook getting on with the neighbors dealing with her child on her own She's doing a lovely job of it Then there's Emily coping with George's infidelity; uite subtle and very effective The Story A young woman Fanny Nash comes staggering across the threshold of her brother's home Raped and stabbed The weeks go by and the police remain baffled and in the meantime Charlotte spends and of her time attempting to help her sister Emily discover who dun it and in the process discovers than she wanted to know about her husband and the neighbors in Paragon Walk while we can enjoy our distance from their rapier like tonguesIt's the discovery of another body that sets everything spinning to the ultimate conclusion after a few red herrings There certainly was a great deal going on underneath the surface than the Pitts or Lady Emily ever suspected The Characters Inspector Thomas Pitt is as disheveled as ever while Charlotte is still attempting to conuer cooking Their daughter Jessamine is teething Together they meet George's Great Aunt Vespasia Cummings Gold for the first time I do like Aunt Vespasia Mrs Smith across the way helps Charlotte by watching Jessamine when Charlotte goes off sleuthingA pregnant Lady Emily Ashworth begs Charlotte for help and support as Pitt investigates her own neighbors on Paragon Walk Lord George Ashworth has his own secrets to keepFanny Nash is the 17 year old half sister of Diggory Afton and Fulton Nash She lived with Diggory and his wife Jessamyn and was engaged to Algernon Burnon The night Fanny was murdered Lord and Lady Dilbridge were holding a party Mrs Selena Montague is a widow and little better than she should be There are the Misses Horbury the tolerant Miss Laetitia and the moralistic Miss Lucinda and their friend Lady Tamworth The self effacing Phoebe Nash is married to the excessively moral Afton Hallam Cayley is a widower Paul Alaric is the dashing Frenchman over whom Serena and Jessamyn are fighting The Title The title indicates the location of the tragedies on Paragon Walk a street where the upper class lives

    This book was a really good mystery but I found myself a little confused by everything going on in it and all of the possible suspects I think there were probably 20 or characters in the book by my count most of whom were possible suspects I just had trouble keeping track of them all let alone trying to suss out who the murderer was Moreover though Pitt is the lead investigator the whole novel focused on Charlotte and Emily which I found kind of irritating I think I'd like of a balance Also I found 85% of the characters to be totally worthless or worse than that I guess I prefer there to be redeeming characteristics even among a list of possible suspects They were all so dreadful The only tolerable characters were Charlotte Thomas possibly Emily although she irritates me Vespasia and Lettitia I just found myself irritated by some of the high society conversations and by Thomas being such a minor character in the book I didn't know who the murderer was at all It was a total surprise to me

    We are conceived in sin and some of us never rise above itI've read some reviews about this book and seen than many people complaint about Pitt not being a very good detective and so on But don't you realize that from the very first book Pitt is not like others for example Poirot? The real investigators in these series are Charlotte and EmilyAlways was a bit too clever Trouble is he wasn't clever enough to pretend to be a little less cleverSuccess without envy was like snails without sauce and as any cultivated woman knew the sauce is everythingThe only people who can change things are the people with power and money sad but true

    Anne Perry's Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series – at least the two books I've read so far – is engaging on several levels surely as mysteries but also as explorations of the hypocrisies of gender class and to a lesser extent ethnicity in 19th century London Some of Perry's characters are caricatures especially the characters that are likely to appear only in this book but the central characters are bright thoughtful eccentric and outspoken Perry allows her characters to be confounded but also to recognize and articulate the subtle messages unsaid in what they say aloudWhat Emily was really asking was did Thomas have any knowledge; was it inside or outside the Walk; could they all dismiss it as a tragedy but something beyond their own affairs a brief intrusion now entirely of the past something that had happened in the Walk but could as easily have occurred anywhere else in the mad creature’s path? p 52Although the first 90% of Paragon Walk was thoughtful deliciously slow paced and observant the ending was unbelievable I tend to be unhappy with many endings especially to mysteries Charlotte – and this is primarily her book rather than her husband's – is wise and thoughtful beyond her years until the end when she was rescued by another male character I wanted to pull her aside shake her and say What were you thinking? She wasn't The Pitt family story builds across the course of the series but one can pick one book up without having read an earlier one without problem I've read books #2 and #3 but not #1
