"An ingenious mystery and an excellent example of manners and caste systems of the Victorian era."
THE CHATTANOOGA TIMES
While the Ellison girls were out paying calls and drinking tea like proper Victorian ladies, a maid in their household was strangled to death. The quiet and young Inspector Pitt investigates the scene and finds no one above suspicion. As his intense questioning causes many a composed facade to crumble, Pitt finds himself couriously drawn to pretty Charlotte Ellison. Yet, a romance between a society girl and so unsuitable a suitor was impossible in the midst of a murder....

I have been to many many Anne Perry bookstore events throughout this country and at every single event the same question gets asked: when is one of your books going to be made into a TV series? Well, fans everywhere, the good news is that this fall in England a two-hour pilot will air on ITV based on THE CATER STREET HANGMAN. And then in early December finally finally finally it will air in the United States on A&E. THE CATER STREET HANGMAN is Anne Perry's first book and features William Pitt and Charlotte. I can't wait to see the Victorian costumes and the characters that I love come to life on the TV screen.
