The Cater Street Hangman is the first of Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries. Set in the Victorian era, it is an elegant and complex mystery full of well-drawn characters and rich period detail. When a maid in the upper class Ellison household is strangled, Inspector Pitt is called in to investigate. He finds a world ruled by strict manners and social customs, where the inhabitants of the Ellison's neighborhood appear to be more outraged by the thought of scandal than they are by murder. Inspector Pitt finds a most unlikely ally in Charlotte, the Ellison's spirited daughter. But as the murders continue, Charlotte and Pitt find themselves drawn together by more than the investigation.

Professional reviews

"Set in Victorian England, this 1979 novel introduced Inspector Thomas Pitt and the socially privileged Charlotte Ellison (later Pitt), who would appear together in 18 subsequent novels. Davina Porter, who has performed several other works of Anne Perry, gives an accomplished reading of this story about the search for a serial strangler on the gas-lit streets. Porter's performance is a pleasure for the listener--sensitive, subtle and elegant--as the characters unravel the mystery of the hangman amid the manners and social constrictions of Victorian life.
