Death in the Devil’s Acre by Anne Perry is the seventh book in her Charlotte & Thomas Pitt series. This book was similar to the other books in the series in that there is a murder that Inspector Pitt tries to solve and his wife Charlotte becomes intrigued and usually secretly tries to help him. In this book Perry explores how difficult society could be for some women. Superficial things are given such importance and noticed and discussed that it can be stifling for some women. I found this to be an interesting topic to explore and seeing where Perry is going becomes as page turning as learning who did the murder.
One thing to note about Death in the Devil’s Acre is that it is a must to have read the second book, Callander Square. I had read it but it was awhile ago and I had a hard time remembering enough so there were parts that were confusing to me
