Description : Excerpt from The Mysteries of the Court of London
Again several minutes elapse; and then with a slow mechanical movement, as if unconscious of the very impulse which she is obeying, Eliza stoops down and picks up the letter which has fallen from her hand - that letter which has pro duced all which we have just been describing. And now she sits down, and reads it calmly and deliberately. Oh, with what a calmness! It is the calmness which the ocean of hyperborean regions displays when frozen into solid ice, - the calmness of that glacial spell which can alone tranquillize the mighty waters that if the tabs manic power were removed, would boil and rage in all the wild ebullition of the tempest. It is the calmness Of the volcano that sleeps under a power superior to its own, when its lava is hard ened into petrifaction-but which, if the spell should be removed, and a spark should be set to the in ammable concrete, would pour forth the gush of the burning levin.
Eliza read the letter mechanically - deliberately - from the first word to the last. It was finished; and then only did she display any outward emo tion: then only was it that a strange expression - a sad expression indeed to be seen upon the countenance of one so young and beautiful - passed slowly over her' features, while simultaneously a. Glacial tremor trailed itself as slowly through her entire form.

Description :

Murder by Misrule is one of Kirkus Reviews' Best Indie Books of 2014
and also won an Indie B.R.A.G. medallion!
Francis Bacon is charged with investigating the murder of a fellow barrister at Gray's Inn. He recruits his protégé Thomas Clarady to do the tiresome legwork. The son of a privateer, Clarady will do anything to climb the Elizabethan social ladder. Bacon's powerful uncle Lord Burghley suspects Catholic conspirators of the crime, but other motives quickly emerge. Rival barristers contend for the murdered man's legal honors and wealthy clients. Highly-placed courtiers are implicated as the investigation reaches from Whitehall to the London streets. Bacon does the thinking; Clarady does the fencing. Everyone has something up his pinked and padded sleeve. Even the brilliant Francis Bacon is at a loss -- and in danger -- until he sees through the disguises of the season of Misrule.

Description : In New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry, the glorious era when Britain reigned supreme has found its most brilliant modern interpreter. Perry’s gripping new Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel invites us back to Victorian London, where greed and ambition never sleep, and passion sometimes runs riot.

As the nineteenth century draws to a close, most of Europe is in political turmoil, and terrorist threats loom large across the continent. Adding to this unrest is the controversial Sofia Delacruz, who has come to London from Spain to preach a revolutionary gospel of love and forgiveness that many consider blasphemous. Thomas Pitt, commander of Special Branch, is charged with protecting Sofia—and shielding Her Majesty’s government from any embarrassment that this woman, as beautiful as she is charismatic, might cause.

When Sofia suddenly vanishes and two of her female disciples are gruesomely murdered, Pitt is challenged as never before. Is Sofia’s cousin, wealthy banker Barton Hall, somehow involved? And why has handsome cricket star Dalton Teague insinuated himself into Pitt’s investigation? Fearful that this sensational crime may trigger an international incident, Pitt welcomes the help of three allies: his clever wife, Charlotte; her great-aunt, Lady Vespasia; and Victor Narraway, Pitt’s friend and former commander at Special Branch. From the narrow streets of Toledo and a lonely monastery high in the hills of Spain, to the halls and wharves of London, Pitt and his friends race against time in their desperate bid to catch a murderer.

Anne Perry is the acknowledged mistress of Victorian intrigue. No one else can match her period flavor, her all-too-human characters, or her haunting truths, which speak so clearly to our own time. The Angel Court Affair may be the best of all the beloved Thomas Pitt novels.

The engagement would be renewed - or rather ro-acknowledged by her parent and if years should still elapse ere she became Bertram's bride, she could wait, happy and contented in the consciousness of possessing his love.
