Thomas Pitt prefers the grim routine of murder investigations to the riskier probing of Victorian governmental intrigues. Yet Anne Perry's Southampton Row again finds him displaced from his police command, this time to foil the political ambitions of a ruthless republican. Charles Voisey, leader of a powerful secret society known as the Inner Circle, was defeated by Pitt when he tried (in The Whitechapel Conspiracy) to abolish the British monarchy. Only months later, though, he's back on top, running for a seat in Parliament. Under the auspices of the newly created Special Branch, Pitt is charged with learning whether Voisey has any "unguarded vulnerabilities." The odds against Pitt succeeding are high- Voisey may be "shallow, self-important [and] condescending," but he impresses voters as more charismatic and less controversial than his opponent, Aubrey Serracold, who's also hobbled by his connection to the recent slaying of a popular spiritualist. While Pitt's wife, Charlotte, and their family are safely out of London on vacation, Pitt, aided by the gruff but dogged Inspector Samuel Tellman, his politically astute sister-in law, and Charlotte's resourceful great-aunt Vespasia, seeks to solve the medium's murder before it can derail Aubrey Serracold's campaign. Perry expertly portrays the volatile British political climate of the 1890s, and by making Pitt and Tellman rivals in their investigation, she further illuminates both men's characters. However, Southampton Row reduces the usually intrepid Charlotte to a hand-wringing irrelevance, and the novel feels too much like an intermediate and inconclusive chapter in a longer story arc. Like Holmes and Moriarty, Thomas Pitt and Charles Voisey appear destined to grapple once more. --J. Kingston Pierce

    Thanks for the review. Big help.Does SquareSpace have an option for user reviews and ratings? If I were to build an ecommerce site, it's something i would like to incorporate.

    They're dying Й good riddance! For all that work, I've discovered it's just better to go around and DONATE a copy to each town's local library for free. The lost sale is cheaper than the gas/time I was wasting and the book gets circulated through more potential readers who will hopefully buy Book 2 of the series. Very few librarians say no (though most scan it for suitability) and quite a few even asked me to autograph their libraries copy.

      Weebly offers hosting of multiple websites using its business plan. Does SquareSpace? (We want to connect or link 3 or more ideas or sites that followers can get to by typing in any of the url's.)
