Death in the Devil's Acre (Charlotte & Thomas Pitt, #7

Death in the Devil's Acre (Charlotte & Thomas Pitt, #7)Death in the Devil's Acre by Anne Perry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When a doctor is found in Devil's Acre, dead and horribly mutilated, Thomas Pitt is called to the scene, but that is just the beginning of the murders. One after another, men who don't belong in the area are found mutilated in the same way. When some of the men killed are known to Charlotte and Emily's circle, the two sisters once again attempt to find the clue that unites them and provides the solution.

As things escalate, Charlotte and Emily are exposing themselves to ever increasing danger and Thomas himself is not immune. What can the upper crust have in common with this seamy side of town? Once again, Anne Perry gives us a glimps into the Victorian mindset and times. Women, relegated to the endless round of visits and social occasions, strike out to find some excitement and put themselves in danger, both social and even physical.
