    One thought on “Callander Square”

    1. I met the tall Charlotte Ellison who lacked a filter on her mouth, her beautiful but conniving sister Emily, the secretive Lord William Ashworth and Inspector Thomas Pitt when I read The Cater Street Hangman The mystery was good and I enjoyed Thomas s character He was a working man s son who was educated side by side with a nobleman s heir His wisdom and speech did not match his disheveled clothes or wild hair He wasn t handsome but he fell in love with Charlotte And he solved the case The young [...]

    2. Second in this series Charlotte has married Thomas, and finds a way to get around Victorian gender rules about the reaspectable wife remaining in the home to get out and help him solve a series of murders that begin with the discovery of some buried infant skeletons in the shared garden of a fashionable cul de sac where some well to do Londoners reside, Callander Square Who put those dead babies there, and why I liked Charlotte s sister Emily even in this volume, for she uses her skills in flat [...]

    3. 3.4 stars.The mystery is good, as usual plenty killed in this story.It was nice to meet Charlotte and Thomas again, they married now and expecting their first child.As we know Thomas is not a well born and budget rather low for these two So, no maid and it was fun to see Charlotte learn how to cook and clean the house The good thing is Thomas was fine with Charlotte read newspapers, and he thought Charlotte is adorable when she talked freely what she had in mind However too many POV in this book [...]

    4. Second in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mystery series set in Victorian London and revolving around a police inspector and his wife My Take Each of the murders revolves around babies while the instigator is sex It s an interesting look at the double standards of the times and the expectations of the wives behaviors as most of the families on the square are torn apart Expectations and beliefs are torn asunder although, I suspect, several of the women affected end up being much happier I did rathe [...]

    5. When the skeletons of two infants are found buried in fashionable Callander Square, it s up to three people to negotiate the labyrinth of social s, scandal and deceit Inspector Pitt, his intrepid wife Charlotte, and her redoubtable sister Emily who arguably is the real sleuth through much of the first half of the book.Overall, this is an intriguing and often disturbing study of Victorian high society, but it suffers from the also Victorian attributes of being somewhat dry and reserved There s no [...]

    6. My second historic sojourn with Anne Perry, whose wonderful suite I m taking in ten years tardy, was also enjoyed at the five star level By an odd personal turn, it was hard to begin this sequel to The Cater Street Hangman because my dear cat unexpectedly died while that book was going We miss you very much, Love I didn t want to associate Anne with a sad event After a few uplifting titles I got back upon the saddle and forged into Callander Square.Exactly like the former, action and activity sp [...]

    7. Callander Square is book two in Anne Perry s Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series The book was published in 1980 The book covers Victorian London s neighborhood s rich secrets Murders don t take place in fashionable Callander Square, so Inspector Pitt s wife Charlotte couldn t resist finding out why one had The plot revolves around the discovery of two infants bodies buried in the square of a high society neighborhood The Pitts are on the case The book is about Victorian society, how they lived bot [...]

    8. The overarching theme of the first two Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries, The Cater Street Hangman and Callander Square, is about the sordid details a murder investigation brings out They may not ultimately be connected to the murder, but they can never be forgotten and they irrevocably change our relationship with those closest to us To write a mystery that is than just a mystery, but without sacrificing the essential elements that mystery readers look for, is a difficult task Perry doesn t [...]

    9. As with other Perry books, the interesting part of the story isn t really the discovering of whodunnit if you can even call this a whodunnit but about learning about the characters I like that we re still spending time with Emily, who almost got screentime than Charlotte in this installment.With a neighborhood like this, it became a bit confusing keeping all the characters straight I constantly got Campbell and the other C family Carlton confused, which was terrible since one was nasty and the [...]

    10. Book 2 of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Victorian mystery series The bodies of two infants are found buried in a park near a wealthy neighborhood, and Inspector Pitt begins interviewing the servants of nearby households, hoping to spot a maid who has secretly given birth and disposed of her baby Charlotte s sister, bored with her high society life, decides to help by exchanging gossip with the local ladies, in case the infants were born to a higher class woman.The Victorian social ill in the spo [...]

    11. I liked this than the first book although there was a nasty ARRGH WHAT moment at the beginning to do with Charlotte and Thomas marriage she s super happy that he intends to be the master of the house and secretly glad to obey , I really liked their relationship and interactions I LOVED getting of Emily, who was my favourite character in the first book Could definitely read of the crime solving team of Emily, clever and ambitious socialite aristocrat, and Charlotte, principled and blunt police [...]

    12. Twisty Victorian AffairsBook 2 of 32 so far in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery series Thomas and Charlotte have married not a spoiler and are expecting their first child Charlotte is adjusting to life on a policeman s salary without complaint, but it is a big change from her previous high society upbringing The book opens with the discovery of the bodies of two infants buried in a garden in the tony neighborhood of Callander Square One of the infants has a weirdly misshapen head Forensic s [...]

    13. Nobody does a Victorian mystery better than Anne Perry and there isn t a better sleuthing team than Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Winners all around.Charlotte and Thomas met in the first book of the series and they are now married and expecting their first child Charlotte s younger sister has also married her titled suitor from the first book Everybody is happy, but Charlotte s sister is getting a little bored with her aristocratic existence So, when the skeletal remains of three babies are found in [...]

    14. Another delightful mystery by Anne Perry I was listening to this on audible so I forgot to put in here as a book I was reading So many interesting characters Although I would like to have seen of the Pitts personal interaction I did not figure out who was the murderer, but the lead up was all very intricate One of the characters was such a coward I really wanted to punch him in the nose, lol I m sure if you like Ms Perry s style you will like this.

    15. A while back, I tried reading the first few books of the Perry s William Monk series but for some reason I didn t really connect to it The books were well written and well researched but the Monk character just didn t draw me in all that much However, this series is different I enjoyed this book and I liked both Charlotte and Thomas Pitt which is actually important when you re dealing with a series how can you want to read further books if you don t like the characters who reappear in them I did [...]

    16. The discovery of two tiny corpses buried in the middle of London s toney Callander Square sees Inspector Thomas Pitt sent in to investigate at first without his knowledge and then with his consent, his high born wife Charlotte and her elder sister Emily, who s married for aristocratic prestige, help his inquiries by ingratiating themselves among Callander Square s worthies or, as it too often proves, unworthies As the tale proceeds, and dirty laundry comes spilling out It seems the case is goi [...]

    17. I liked this book, particularly the characterization of the people who lived in Callander Square, as demonstrated by their assumptions about who might have murdered two babies and buried them in the central green of the square, and the things they knew, didn t know, and didn t know others knew, about each other Social class mattered at the time, and this is important in the book, as Charlotte mixes with both the upper class and the servants in her quest for information.I really liked the Balanty [...]

    18. 2 in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series In this story the deaths of two infants are really background to the story of the houses and people who live in the London high society neighborhood of Callander Square As Thomas investigates, with a sincere desire to find the culprit, secrets about each household come out including sex with the servants, love affairs, revenge, gossip, politicking in society and murder The rules of society fascinate me thought I would not have wanted to live with them an [...]

    19. Callander Square is the second book in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series by Anne Perry Set in the late 1800s, this novel tells the story of multiple mysterious deaths in a posh area of London Thomas, a police inspector, is called to the central garden of the high society Callander Square after two baby corpses are found buried among the flowers Immediately suspecting a poor servant girl, Pitt begins to investigate each household, causing an uncomfortable mood to hang over the residents of the [...]

    20. This is my first audiobook, and it s been an interesting experience My husband says it s reminiscent of the old radio plays Despite all the flaws in plot and in Davina Porter s delivery, I was enrapt, and have spent many, many hours listening I d have raced through the print edition in no time This is a mystery, but reads like a soap opera The families and staff of this middle class Victorian neighbourhood are linked by class loyalties, business dealings and social ties, but Perry is mainly int [...]

    21. I admit I am not much able to understand much of this story Nor interested I think it has a good story near the end, however Even if, when you read it, you will not like how it spirals to an end But its literal and descriptive conclusion after following literal actions of Pitt s so long that it makes it kind of worthy Pitt found too few clues, he could not support the investigation, and there were no real leads At first I read and reread for instances of circumstantial evidence or missing clues [...]

    22. In Anne Perry s second Pitt mystery, she s still showing signs of warming up to her series It was not as awkward as the first novel, but it was still not as good as some of the later ones that I have read, partly because the urgency of solving the crime was almost absent I wish that Perry were less repetitive I do not need to be reminded once a chapter or sometimes twice that men of the aristocratic class could carry on affairs with the maids of their house without fear of recourse I also wish s [...]

    23. Actually, I think this rating should be between 3 and 4.The writing was good, but it seemed that the main discoveries of the mystery were not revealed by the detectives in the story, but by the characters in the Square talking amongst themselves without any of the investigators hearing of them It made the solution by the policeman Pitt seem to come out of left field.I did like the main characters, Pitt, Charlotte, and her sister Emily, but felt that the Pitts were a bit flat compared to Emily I [...]

    24. I hoped this series would hook me, but I m giving up after the second book I feel really cheated when I m reading a book and the author has created a compelling mystery with an intricate web of characters and in this case a ridiculously large number of them to keep straight , only to solve the mystery on the last page and DONE I honestly thought my book was missing the last chapter What about all the characters I ve invested in How do they feel about the truth coming out What happens to the rest [...]

    25. In una bella ed elegante piazza nella zona bene di Londra due giardinieri trovano sepolti i resti di due neonati Thomas Pitt chiamato a indagare con cautela la colpa di una domestica Sono nati morti Erano i figli di un uomo importante Ad aiutarlo ci pensano la moglie Charlotte, che si dimostra interessata alla storia britannica, e la cognata Emily, esperta di pettegolezzi e scandali.Il mystery in s viene risolto nelle ultime pagine, anche in maniera un po raffazzonata Ma l atmosfera di questa se [...]

    26. He believed that the longer you hid from the truth the less able you were to cope with it when it finally broke through all the barriers, like a dammed river, and carried away the careful structure of your life with it I knew Anne Perry could do it much better than in the first book This plot is fantastic I have been suffering all book not knowing who was the murderer But such a great ending DAndis is not a normal crime fiction novel Pitt is not like Poirot or Sherlock Holmes view spoiler Pitt [...]

    27. The protagonists in this series, Charlotte and Thomas Perry, are not particularly interesting The point of view shifts around to other characters, and Charlotte and Thomas aren t even on center stage that much I had trouble keeping track of the potential bad guys On top of that, the plots are a little week The resolution to this one didn t make a lot of sense to me.Why did I give it four stars The incredibly oppressive nineteenth century setting is what is incredible in these books The narrow, r [...]

    28. Just as I started this book, I found out about the author s past and I am very sorry to say it impacted how I felt about and how I enjoyed the book In all fairness, it is a good book In today s age of high tech and complex crimes and equally complex crime solving techniques, these old mysteries seem too simple The real beauty of the book then is not in the actual mystery but in how the suspects are eliminated We get a deep insight into the life and motivations of each suspect which is where the [...]

    29. This second book in the series has Charlotte and Thomas married and Charlotte expecting their first child The discovery of two infants buried in the shared garden of an upscale neighborhood opens up a host of scandals involving the repressed and double standard sexual s of Victorian England The ending was a bit weak but a very good story overall.
