Publisher Description

Unexpected clues and unexpected dangers...

The death of the doctor's wife in a ferocious fire shocks genteel Highgate Village. But when it proves to be arson, Inspector Thomas Pitt finds himself in charge of a complicated case of murder, in Anne Perry's Highgate Rise. Perfect for fans of C. J. Sansom and Sarah Perry.

'Perry uses her well-mannered prose, satiric wit and sense of place and time to construct a completely believable and human world. A sterling performance' - Library Journal

Clemency Shaw, the wife of a prominent doctor, is killed in a tragic fire in Highgate. But the blaze was deliberate, so was she or her husband the intended victim? Could the doctor have set it himself to inherit Clemency's large fortune? While Inspector Thomas Pitt tries to build a case from the scarce clues, his wife Charlotte retraces the dangerous path that Clemency walked in the last months of her life, finding herself enmeshed in a sinister web that stretches from the lowest slums to the loftiest centres of power.
