|Plot Summary of Traitor's Gate|
This is an excellent novel for any Perry or mystery fan (though I must warn any unfamiliar to Anne Perry's writings that there are long, tedious points of the story which make for slower reading). Overall it is a book showing tremendous historical research offering you a look inside Victorian England and Colonial Africa. Betrayal, secret organizations, murder, society, and relationships are explored in this novel featuring Thomas and Charlotte Pitt (police investigator and once high society wife).
