Publisher's Summary

The queen of the Victorian mystery, New York Times best seller Anne Perry returns with the 32nd novel in the Inspector Pitt series, Murder on the Serpentine.

Pitt is on a secret mission for the Queen, maybe his last....

London, 1899: Head of Special Branch Commander Thomas Pitt is summoned to Buckingham Palace. In the twilight of her years, Queen Victoria is all too aware that the Prince of Wales will soon inherit her empire and must be beyond reproach. She tells Pitt she tasked her close friend and confidant, John Halberd, with investigating the Prince's friends, specifically Alan Kendrick, a wealthy playboy and betting man, but before he could report back Halberd was found dead in a rowing boat on the Serpentine.

The death has been ruled an unfortunate accident and the investigation closed, but the Queen is not convinced that all is as it seems and tasks Pitt with finding the truth. Forced to act alone in this most sensitive of investigations, Pitt finds himself embroiled in a plot that threatens not only the reputations of men but also the safety and reputation of the empire.

    "Issues with recording"

    Unfortunately there were quite a few issues with the recording which ruins the story. If this was not the case I would have given it a 3 and 1/2 stars.

    "Incomparable"

    Another fantastic offering from the incomparable Anne Perry. Full of twists and turns, but lit up throughout by the beautiful relationship between Thomas Pitt and his wife Charlotte. I especially enjoy the authentic re creation of turn of the century domestic life, and the coolness and wit with which Charlotte approaches her role as the wife of the head of Special Branch. Pitt himself is one of the most admirable fictional characters you could read, from lowly beginnings, he adapts himself to his changing world with grace and intelligence.
