Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449222276, Mass Market Paperback)

"The author has the eyes of a hawk for character nuance and her claws out for signs of the criminal injustices rampant among the privileged classes during this gilded historical perilousness."

Fortunately, Pitt's clever, well-born wife, Charlotte has entree into London's best society. And at glittering balls and over gossipy teas, she observes a world of passion, power, and greed, that is closed to police inspection...
