Anne Perry Treachery at Lancaster Gate Chapter 1 Pitt stood in the middle of the street looking at the smoldering ruins of the house. The fire brigade had thoroughly hosed the small bursts of flame here and there, and the water had puddled on the floor and settled into the craters left by the bomb that had detonated approximately forty-five minutes ago. It was midday but the sky was still clouded with smoke and the stench of it was everywhere. Pitt moved out of the way as two ambulance men ...

Anne Perry The Sins of the Wolf Chapter 1 Hester Latterly sat upright in the train, staring out of the window at the wide, rolling countryside of the Scottish Lowlands. The early October sun rose through a haze above the horizon. It was a little after eight in the morning, and the stubble fields were still wreathed in mist, the great trees seeming to float rootless above it, their leaves only beginning to turn bronze on odd branches here and there. The buildings she could see were of solid gray ...

Anne Perry Blood on the Water CHAPTER 1 Monk leaned forward, resting on his oar for a moment as he stared across the water at the Pool of London. Ships from every country on earth lay at anchor, riding lights swaying in the dusk wind. The sun was low in the early summer sky and streaks of red flared across the west. Behind him, at the other oar, Orme rested also. He was a quiet man who had worked on the river all his life. Good sight, eh, sir he said, his wind-burned face creased in ...

A Spanish saint he said, struggling to keep his voice more or less level. Shes not Spanish, shes English, Sir Walter replied patiently. She merely lives in Spain. Toledo, Im told.

Anne Perry A Sunless Sea CHAPTER 1 The sun was rising slowly, splashing red light across the river. The drops thrown from Monks oars glowed momentarily in the air, like wine, or blood. On the other seat, a yard or so in front of him, Orme leaned forward and threw his weight against the drag of the current. They worked in perfect rhythm, used to each other now it was the last week of November 1864, nearly two years since Monk had taken command of the Thames River Police at the Wapping Station. ...

There was blood on the shards of glass as well, and some of it had already congealed. Splinters lay on the steps below and above. The January wind whined across the open stretch towards the gravel pits in the distance. And the maid is missing Pitt asked quietly. Yes, and sorry, sir, the police sergeant said ...

The light from the chandeliers sparkled on necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Between the somber black and white suits of the men, the womens gowns blossomed in every color of the early summer: delicate pastels for the young, burning pinks and golds for those in the height of their beauty, and wines, mulberries, and lavenders ...

Henry Rathbone tucked the blanket around his legs where he sat in the pony trap, his luggage beside him. Yes, thank you, Wiggins, he replied gratefully. The wind had a knife-edge to it, even here at the railway station in Penrith. Out on the six-mile road through the snow-crusted mountains down to Ullswater, it would get far worse. It was roughly the middle of ...

It was the end of a very long journey and she was aching with tiredness and from the biting cold. First there had been the early morning ride to the station in London. The platforms had been crowded and it had been difficult to push their way to the train with all the luggage in tow, trying not to bump into people. She had been glad ...

Dedicated to all who look upward HENRY RATHBONE LEANED A LITTLE FARTHER forward in his armchair and regarded his visitor gravely. James Wentworth had an air of weariness in his face that made him look older than his sixty-odd years. There was something close to desperation in the way his hands fidgeted, clenching and unclenching on his knees. What can I do Henry asked gently. Perhaps nothing, Wentworth answered. As he spoke, the logs in the fire settled deeper, sending up a shower of sparks. It ...

At the foot would be the brightly wrapped presents for her husband and children. All through the house there would be candles, wreaths ...
