Set in Oscar Wilde's London in 1891, Perry's new Thomas Pitt mystery is all about the importance of being earnest. Superintendent Pitt is summoned to the Thames when police discover the body of a young man dressed in a torn green velvet gown, manacled to a punt, "in parody of ecstasy and death." At first it seems the victim is Henri Bonnard, a functionary in the French embassy; eventually, Pitt and dour sidekick Sergeant Tellman identify the body as Delbert Cathcart, a gifted photographer. Was there a connection between Cathcart and lookalike Bonnard?

A typical Anne Perry 'who done it' exploring Victorian morals and women's rights (lack of). Interesting twist on the evils of pornography.

We are given an insight into why Charlotte's grandmmother is so nasty and bitter.

Interesting side plots.

Charlotte's away for this one.
