Anne Perry has an uncanny way of immersing listeners in the world of Victorian London in her two historical mystery series. Here, Charlotte and Thomas Pitt get involved in a series of perplexing crimes amidst the upper crust of society on Paragon Walk. Charlotte’s better-married sister lives on the Walk and must accept her brother-in-law’s assignment to the crime scene. Davina Porter sets the scene with perfect tone and period elegance. Her rich, smooth voice portrays the social order and convinces us of each mannered convention. Under Porter’s tutelage listeners feel the import of social slights, innuendo, and scandal. She shares the growing fear of the murderous assailant who lurks behind the facades of these elegant households. R.F.W.
