Extremely disappointing in dragging out something as sordid as rape. I kept on flipping pages. There is no advantage whatsoever in reading this book and I am normally a reader of this author's books.

A naive, innocent girl of 19 is raped and murdered in Charlotte Pitt's sister Lady Emily Ashworth's elite neighborhood and sets everyone on edge. Thomas Pitt is assigned to solve this murder, and those that follow. Emily pulls Charlotte into attempts to solve the crimes themselves, even providing appropriate gowns for Charlotte to wear to functions that Thomas doesn't know she's attending. He's even forbidden her to get involved. Some interesting new characters or new views characters we've met before; other characters are simply "silly," as Emily describes them. Much of the action is ridiculous as well, while some is tragic. Not one of Perry's best.

Finished book. It was interesting. Probably have read enough of Victorian mysteries for now. Would read this author again.
