A Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Novel. About Belgrave Square. A Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Novel. When an obscure moneylender named William Weems is murdered in the humble Clerkenwell district, there are no mourners-and there is more than a little discreet rejoicing among those whose meager earnings he so mercilessly devoured. Yet when Inspector Pitt finds in the murdered man’s office a list containing the names of some of London’s most distinguished gentlemen, he begins to realize the magnitude of his duty. William Weems, it transpires, was no common usurer but a vicious blackmailer.

When an obscure moneylender named William Weems is murdered in the humble Clerkenwell district, there are no mourners—and there is more than a little discreet rejoicing among those whose meager earnings he so mercilessly devoured. Yet when Inspector Pitt finds in the murdered man’s office a list containing the names of some of London’s most distinguished gentlemen, he begins to realize the magnitude of his duty. William Weems, it transpires, was no common usurer but a vicious blackmailer. Fortunately, Pitt’s clever, well-born wife, Charlotte, has entrée to London’s best society. Her insights prove to be invaluable to Pitt’s investigation as she observes, at glittering balls and over gossipy tea tables, a world of passion, power, and greed that the police are seldom permitted to see.
  • I've read all 23 of the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt books, and this entry has more than any other of what we love Anne Perry for -- the beautifully drawn descriptions of high and low Victorian life; the interweaving of Charlotte's family's goings-on with the main plot; wonderfully realized secondary characters; etc. In Belgrave Square, we learn for the first time of the deadly secret society known as the Inner Circle, which will return to haunt Charlotte, Thomas, and their families in future books. The main police business at issue -- who blew the head off nasty userer William Weems -- is slightly over-the-top, if undeniably dramatic; but it has several rivals for the reader's attention, including the compelling romance of Micah Drummond and Eleanor Byam (very touching and believable) and the love triangle of Fanny Hilliard, Fitz Fitzpatrick, and Odelia Morden. Thomas and Charlotte themselves continue to grow in interesting ways; here, Charlotte is forced out of her happy-married-woman complacency, learning a new sympathy for the travails of others even when they are not particularly likeable people. There's even a fascinating lesson in colonial economics tucked away in all the plotting and subplotting! But the capper of the book for me is the delicious encounter between Lady Vespasia and Lily Langry at an upper-crust garden party. Every time I reread it, I'm impressed anew by Perry's ability to set a vivid scene and draw her readers into the absurd but deadly serious etiquette games of another time and place.

  • Anne Perry is one of my all time favorite mystery writers. Reading her stories bring you right to Victorian England, the sights, smells, clothing and cooking all brought right to your senses. I love her stories, I’m sure you will also if you like intrigue and mystery.

  • The story takes place in Clerkenwell district of London, a shady area, by all accounts. Pitt is brought in because it involves the gentry and quickly discovers that there are a multitude of distinguished gentlemen on the murdered money lenders books. With the help of Charlotte, who slips into society to get a clear picture of those involved, Pitt is able to determine that along with being a money lender, the dead man is also a blackmailer. The ending a real shocker, that shakes the foundation of the social world and causes Superintendent Drummond to make some life choices.

  • This book in a series set in Victorian times following Detective Thomas Pitt. I was give book nine in the series and liked it to much that I have been buying every book in order from one, a couple of month. Now up to 16 in the series, it follows the Pitt family so well it leaves the reader feeling as if they not only know Pitt but his wife, children, sister-in-law and aunt. etc. After reading 16 of these books in the series, I feel like I know that family..

  • Thomas Pitt is a police inspector in London, circa 1890. He has been removed from more routine cases to handle a special investigation. An unsavory usurer (loan shark) has been killed, and some high placed people have an interest. It seems the usurer was also a blackmailer. Someone else may now have information damaging to various people.
    The novel provides a good picture of the social climbing and snobishness of Victorian England, where the old school tie meant a lot, mistresses were OK as long as you were discreet, and an exposed skeleton could ruin you socially, destroy your children's marriage prospects, and get you blackballed from club membership. People were expected to be seen in the right places, but you could not accept invitations unless you returned them, and a woman could not possibly wear the same dress or hat to two functions.
    Events are compounded by a shadowy secret society that goes beyond the old school tie. People are not telling the whole truth about their relationships, and investigations by Pitt (with some additional nosing around by his wife) reveal well hidden secrets. The novel comes to a surprising conclusion as truths are revealed.
    The novel has some sexual content and violence.

  • Anne Perry worked out the plot so well that I didn't want to skip to see how it ends. Her books are so full of history and she is a genius at imagery. The ending is shocking! The only disappointment is that there wasn't one more chapter about Drummond going forward. Perhaps in the next one which is Farrier's Lane.

  • If you love Anne Perry's other Charlotte and Thomas Pitt books, you will love Belgrave Square. Very engaging mystery will lots of twists and turns. This was the first Anne Perry book I read years ago and enjoyed rereading it again. Definitely a great book for Victorian England mystery lovers.

  • another great story, full of twists and wonderful characters
