Perry's stuff is believable and relatively easy to follow. She tends, like many mystery writers, to refer back to her other stories in the series, unavoidable if you are writing a sequence, but comes across a little self-promoting at times. In this book Thomas Pitt is more on his own, and so some other female characters are rounded out, this is good. Michael Page reads the story well, and varies his voice well for various characters, including the women. Over all, the book is good reading, entertaining, but not compelling. ( )

Continual repitition regarding death of spiritualist. Also threats of bitter struggle to pertain crucial London seat. The individual responsible for deaths actually won seat. Did not like ending ( )
