A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

"Anne Perry skilfully evokes the atmosphere of nineteenth-century London and its sharp social contrasts." - PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY When a Member of Parliament is murdered on Westminster Bridge, the case becomes a top priority for Inspector Thomas Pitt. Victorian London seethes with unrest - women battling for suffrage, dockworkers on strike - and the public outcry at this latest outrage threatens to deafen the authorities. When a second and then a third MP are killed in the same spot, and in the same grisly fashion, Pitt's case reaches crisis proportions.

From the Inside Flap:

He might be elegant, but there's no mistaking it--the gentleman tied to the lamppost on Westminster Bridge is definitely dead. Before Inspector Thomas Pitt can even speculate on why anyone should want to kill the eminent M.P., Sir Lockwood, a colleague of his, meets the same fate at the same spot. The public is outraged, and clever Charlotte Pitt, Thomas's well-born wife, helps her hard-pressed husband by scouting society's drawing rooms for clues to these appalling crimes. Meanwhile, another victim is being stalked....
"Mrs. Perry once again demonstrates her true and lively passion....Her finely drawn characters couldn't be more comfortable within the customs and sensibility of their historical period."
