What I thought I was getting ie the synopsis on Goodreads Careless of both murder and manners Charlotte Ellison and her sister two determinedly unconventional young women ignore Victorian s and actively join the police investigation led by young Inspector Thomas Pitt into the murder of their servant girlWhat I actually gotCharlotte Oh my These deaths are so tragic I'll say everything that comes to my mind Isn't my brother in law hot Women are so down troddenEmily Oh sure this guy I'm seeing is a philandering gambler who everyone is warning me aboutbut he is titled so its okay I'll make him marry me Women are down trodden but we can use our wilesSarah Do ALL the good works for the poor Women are down troddenCaroline Oh dear my husband is coming Women are down trodden Then there is the back of my copy of this book which adds But it was not panic beating in the heart of pretty Charlotte Ellison And something than brutal murder was on Inspector Pitt's mind Yet such a romance between a society girl and so unsuitable a suitor was impossible the midst of murder So I thoughts I would get a nice mix of romance and mystery The truth is I'm still not sure Charlotte or Inspector Pit are even main characters The writing continually switches POV between the family members which I eventually got used to It was not however the voices of two strong female leads Charlotte and Emily like I expected It is mainly the tragic shock of the women in the house as they discover men are not to be trusted and that even the most seemingly loyal of gentleman have horrible secrets BlehThe romance is mainly Charlotte crushing on her brother in law at the end until for no apparent reason she decides 'That vulgar policemanhe might do I'm now deeply in love' The mystery was obvious There is really only two people who could be the hangman and view spoilerbased on the down trodden rebelling women theme it was obvious which of the two it was hide spoiler

Panic and fear strike the Ellison household when one of their own falls prey to the Cater Street murderer While Mrs Ellison and her three daughters are out their maid becomes the third victim of a killer who strangles young women with cheese wire leaving their swollen faced bodies on the dark streets of this. In July 2003 I first came across Anne Perry’s “Charlotte and Thomas Pitt” series I read 17 of them including this one However I read them all out of order – and many of them were not available at all at my Library so it was a bit of a scrambled mess One thing I do remember I loved reading this seriesWhen I decided to fill in the gaps I noticed that I had not read #2 through and including #5 So as soon as I had an available series spot I decided to rectify this Then I decided to read the very first one over again so there would be a bit cohesion I am very glad I didThis series takes place in the Victorian era in England and Anne Perry did her research So many of the “rules for women in polite society” would probably come as a gigantic surprise to many younger women today It is even possible they might read this and decide it was all made up nonsense but I hope they read my review first I can assure them that this was indeed the way women were reuired to behave and we have come a very long way in a relatively short time historically speakingThen there is Charlotte The middle daughter she is independent in her thinking and freuently gets into trouble with her family for her forthrightness At the same time her mother especially admires this daughter who doesn’t bother to hide her emotions and speaks her mind – possibly because that is what she would prefer to do herselfWe meet the rest of Charlotte’s family in this novel as well There are several murders that take place and the freuency combined with everyone knowing the victims terrorizes the entire neighbourhood as they all take place on Cater Street Inspector Thomas Pitt meets the family – and Charlotte – when one of their young maids becomes a victimAnne Perry is a terrific storyteller and guess what I love reading terrific stories If you are looking for a series that will keep you entertained and absorbed into a different time and place I can highly recommend this series as it will definitely satisfy

The Cater Street HangmanGenteel neighborhood Inspector Pitt assigned to the case must break through the walls of upper class society to get at the truth His in depth investigation gradually peels away the proper veneer of the elite world exposing secrets and desires until suspicion becomes frightening than truth Outspoken Charlott. I read this on a day I stayed home sick from work I felt terrible but escaping into this book gave me several hours of wonderful distraction Perry perfectly evoked the spirit and flavor of the era and what life was like for an intelligent and curious young woman in a time when those were not considered favorable attributes for womenThe mystery is good touching as it does the obsessions the Victorians had for sex and religion The best thing for me in The Cater Street Hangman is the sense of increasing fear that Charlotte suffers as women are killed and she begins to suspect everyone around her She starts to realize that the pleasant faces shown in public hide a multitude of sins hypocrisy and secrets
