Victorian policeman Thomas Pitt and his wife, Charlotte, work in very different ways towards the same end--solving a murder and uncovering the perpetrator of an extortion scheme aimed at influential members of society. Terrence Hardiman narrates with conviction and an appreciation of the conventions and customs of Victorian London. He uses accents to good effect, particularly in his characterizations of the working class. Cadence and pace are effective in distinguishing the main characters. Hardiman helps listeners fit all of the pieces together, maintaining interest until the end. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
