Not In Stock - Special Order (Subject to Availability)
The freshly dead body sprawled on the Bedford Square doorstep of General Brandon Balantyne is an affront to every respectable sensibility. The general denies all knowledge of the shabbily dressed victim who has so rudely come to death outside his home. But Superintendent Thomas Pitt cannot believe him. For in the dead man's pocket he finds a rare snuffbox that recently graced the general's study. He must tread lightly, however, lest his investigation trigger a tragedy of immense proportions, ensnaring honorable men like flies in a web. Pitt's clever wife, Charlotte, becomes his full partner in probing this masterpiece of evil, spawned by an amorality greater than they can imagine . . .

Praise for Bedford Square: A Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Novel…
"Perry scores again with a major Victorian thriller . . . A tribute to master plotter Agatha Christie for its ingenuity."
"Perry is generous with colorful period details about daily life as it was lived at the end of the century. . . . She is even more remarkable at shaping historical events . . . into a piece of fiction that offers both a satisfactory mystery to solve and a grave social injustice."
