Anne Perry returns listeners to the lives of Londoners Charlotte and Thomas Pitt. After the 16-year-old daughter of the Portuguese ambassador leaps to her death, the Pitts grieve for her, particularly when they think of something like that happening to their own teenaged daughter. Narrator Davina Porter is sublime as she creates multiple accents for characters of varied classes and ages. In addition to feisty Charlotte and serious Thomas, Porter excels with the all-knowing Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould and her possible romance with Victor Narraway. When Charlotte and Vespasia discover that rape is behind the suicides of several young women, they compel the police to delve into a crime that was,more often than not ignored in the Victorian era.
