Murders just don't happen in fashionable areas like Callander Square-but these two have. The police are totally baffled. Pretty, young Charlotte Ellison Pitt, however, is curious.

Inspector Pitt's well-bred wife doesn't often meddle in her husband's business, but something about this case intrigues her-to the point that staid Charlotte Pitt is suddenly rattling the closets of the very rich, seeking out backstairs gossip that would shock a barmaid, and unearthing truths that could push even the most proper aristocrat to murder.

The bodies of two babies have been found in a garden bed in toney Callander Square. Inspector Pitt is sent into investigate, but finds the inhabitants close-lipped and snobbish. To that end, his wife, Charlotte, with the help of her sister Emily, goes undercover in one of the big houses to help her husband catch a murderer. What she finds is layers of scandal, gossip and old wounds that indicate that almost anyone could be guilty.Second of the Pitt mysteries, this one's ending is a bit quick and doesn't connect well to the rest of the story. Still, Charlotte is an engaging heroine and Pitt's love of her shines through much of this story. The gossipy wealthy's stories are thoroughly engaging and help make-up for the mystery plot weaknesses. It was interesting to see how certain characters managed to gain power even within the very strict confines of Victorian society.
