MPs killed to avenge old crime
  ritaer | Aug 20, 2020 |
Parl. members killed
starved herself to death for women's right to vote! — Be heard — very embarrassing to husband! Tom. Pitt + wife + Emily

The gentleman tied to the lamppost on Westminster Bridge is most elegantly attired --- fresh boutonniere, silk hat, white evening scarf --- and he is quite, quite dead, as a result of his thoroughly cut throat.

Why should anyone kill Sir Lockwood Hamilton, that kindest of family men and most conscientious member of Parliament? Before Inspector Thomas Pitt can even speculate on the reasons, a colleague of Sir Lockwood's meets the same fate in the same spot.

Like most Charlotte and Thomas Pitt books, this was a bit long--though not as long as many of them. A nice weaving of human rights (which is what it boils down to), the end of the Victorian Age, religious freedom, freedom of conscience, and the treatment of the insane.

Blessings on all the stalwart women who went before: both those who fought for our rights and those who endured stalwartly the repression of their spirits. ( )

When an MP is murdered women suffrage beware. But another than another murder occurs. Pitt and his wife go around London tring to find the murderer. A surprising twist happens after the murderer is found. ( )

Very good victorian detective fiction, at least her detective fiction isn't as obvious as her fantasy! She gets the feel of the victorian world, and you can understand the characters and their frustrations ( )

To Ruth, for her many gifts to me
First words
Hetty stood at the edge of Westminster Bridge and stared across the dark roadway at the man lounging rather awkwardly against the beautiful three-headed lamppost on the far side.
