Dorchester Terrace [9780345510631]

  • ?[A] magic kingdom of Victorian murder and intrigue.??The New York Times Book Review

    Thomas Pitt is now the powerful head of Britain?s Special Branch, and some people fear that he may have been promoted beyond his abilities. His own self-doubt is fueled by rumors of a plot to blow up connections on the Dover-London rail line, on which Austrian duke Alois Habsburg is soon to travel. But why destroy an entire train to kill one obscure Austrian royal? Are the rumors designed to distract police from an even more devastating plot? Meanwhile, in a London sickroom, an old Italian woman is terrified that as she sinks into dementia, she may divulge secrets from her career as a revolutionary spy. And behind the doors of a stately manor, a beautiful young Croatian woman hoards mysteries of her own. Pitt and his clever wife, Charlotte, need these two fascinating women to tell them things they desperately need to know?before death and terror ignite an international catastrophe.

    ?The always clever Anne Perry infuses Dorchester Terrace with the right amount of intrigue and complex relationships that have made this prolific series one of the finest in modern mystery fiction.??Bookreporter

    ?A classic . . . [a] novel of intrigue, romance and treason . . . replete with well-drawn characters.??Huntington News
