While I usually enjoy the Pitt mysteries, this installment fell really flat for me. The premise is pretty okay--Pitt has to reopen an old unsolved case in which a member of the Foreign Office was killed in his home: was it a burglary gone wrong or something more sinister? Following the thread ends up with Pitt in his own trouble. This seems good, but I just could not swallow some of the plot lines. Not one but two members of Pitt's family go undercover, the motive(s) aren't well justified, and the explanation of the murder was unsatisfying to me. There are so many problems with continuity or believability that I could not believe this was from the same series I have enjoyed in so many previous volumes. ( )

I was afraid this series was going to become too repetitive. But this entry made some nice changes. I like going undercover in Victorian London. There is also a bit of romance. ( )

Book description
When Inspector Thomas Pitt is asked to reopen a three-year-old murder case that had taken place in London’s luxurious Hanover Close, he is all too aware that his superiors want him to simply smooth things over. But penetrating the reserve of high society households will take more finesse than Pitt can muster. Enter Charlotte Pitt, his wellborn wife, and her sister, Emily. As the social equals of the inhabitants of the Close, the women are privy to conversations that would never reach the ears of a mere policeman. What they find is a secret so shocking it will lead to more deaths—including, quite possibly, Pitt’s own.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449216861, Mass Market Paperback)

When Inspector Thomas Pitt is asked to reopen a three-year-old murder case which had taken place in London's luxurious Hanover Close, he knows that his superiors want him to smooth things over. But that is just not the way Pitt operates. With his wellborn wife, Charlotte, to aid him in penetrating the well-known reserve of high society, the inquisitive Pitts discover a secret so shocking it would lead to more deaths--and, quite possibly -- Pitt's own....
"[A] complex, gripping and highly satisfying mystery...An adroit blend of thick London atmosphere and a convincing cast...A totally surprising yet wonderfully plausible finale."
