Mystery & Suspense • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Inspector Thomas Pitt is looking for a killer and once again turns to his wife, Charlotte, to see what she can learn behind the scenes. Twin arsons result in the death of a doctor and his feminist wife, leaving the question of who was the true target and why. Davinia Porter delivers the highly skilled narration that is her trademark. Her main characters easily become comfortable acquaintances for listeners, even newcomers to the series. She draws upon the class distinctions and class struggles running through the plot in portraying the cast of characters who provide a window into Victorian London and the social tensions that inform the investigation.
