Superintendent Pitt Series

mystery booksThe first features Thomas Pitt of the London Police and his wife Charlotte. It begins in 1881 with The Cater Street Hangman in which they meet and fall in love. Pitt comes from a humble background and Charlotte is much above his station. Charlotte loves him enough to sacrifice her social and financial comfort for the harder, but far more interesting life he offers her, and by the second novel they have been married...She becomes involved in most of Pitt's cases, lending a feminine view, acute observation, and the ability to mix in wealthy and aristocratic circles where Pitt would not be accepted. Pitt has become superintendent of The Bow Street Station and many of his cases involve high society, glamorous, controversial and politically sensitive issues, and social scandals. The twentieth book, Half Moon Street, is set in 1892 in the heyday of Empire. Intermingled with the wit and daring side of Victoriana is always there - extreme poverty, social evils and injustices - as it is in the William Monk series.
