I am reading MS Perry's Pitt series again and enjoying them as much as I did the first time. I am currently reading Resurrection Row and twice now, I have seen reference to Caroline as a widow. I have a vague memory of Edward dying and caroling needing PItt's help. Am I confusing Caroline having a new beau and a murder surrounding that?

Further to the message I left on the 9th March, '09 - "Gracie" was a little servant girl in the Thomas Pitt series. My mum is wanting to read the book where Gracie first appears on the scene. She thinks that Pitt and his wife perhaps rescued Gracie from a 'house of ill repute'. Does anyone remember which book it might have been in?

Question about the ending of Ashworth Hall: I've read the last pages several times and still am not sure who the killer(s) are.
What do other readers think?

Hi, I am trying to find a Thomas Pitt book for my aunt as a birthday present. She told me the book she's looking for has this storyline where Charlotte's grandmother is involved. Charlotte finds out that her grandfather,the older Mr Ellison, was a bigamist. He had been married before and had a son and his first wife left him and took their infant son and fled. Charlotte also discovers that the older Mr Ellison abused his wife(I won't get into the nasty details here.)Does anyone know the title to this book? Thanks.

I am half-way through my second Anne Perry book, a William Monk story, "Face of a Stranger". I am a life-long reader of mystery novels, and I have to say that at age 71 I have encountered few authors who show such understanding of human emotions and motivations as Anne Perry does. I refer specifically to the novel I am presently reading, "The Face of a Stranger", pp. 180-182, describing a scene in the student classroom of Shelburne Hall. Of course, I see phrasing in Anne's writing that I think would not have been used in early Victorian conversation, and I question the description of a dagurreotype in Lady Fabia's room as "early", since all of these would have been early in 1857. These are negligible objections. Overall Anne's writing is elegant, thought-provoking, graceful, and highly entertaining. I don't know how many more William Monk stories she holds in store for us, but I hope they are many. After recently reading the first, I immediately ordered the next six.
Anne is obviously a gentle soul with an ability to love another person in spite of that person's shortcomings and faults. Every man should be so fortunate as to call as his own such a woman.

Hi, all... just a note that there will be another holiday offering from AP - "A Christmas Beginning" coming out in October 2008. It will feature a mystery investigated by Superintendent Runcorn from the Monk series.
