Description

It is late one night in Buckingham Palace, and Queen Victoria's eldest son Bertie has spent a debauched evening with some male cronies, topping off hours of drinking by inviting a few prostitutes into the Palace. Nothing unusual about that, except that this time, one of the women is found the next morning in the linen cupboard, slashed and very dead. Abridged. 5 CDs.

Professional reviews

"With a plot as winding as the 6,000-mile railroad that stretches the full length of Africa, upon which this mystery is based, Anne Perry's latest delves into subterranean aspects of the aristocracy, probing emotions as well as morality and politics. Navigating an alluring world of Victorian crime and intrigue, Inspector Thomas Pitt investigates the death of a prostitute, found naked in a palace linen closet while the Prince and Princess of Wales are in residence. Narrator Michael Page deftly becomes Perry's versatile cast of characters as the author explores her usual themes: the mores of the various British social classes and the preservation of the Empire. His smooth delivery is well paced; however, his women's voices sound shrill. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
