    1. It s the end of the 19th century and a woman comes to London and preaches what many people feel like a blasphemous message and then she disappears and Thomas Pitt must find her.This is the 30th book in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series and this first book in the series that I have read Luckily for me, it was easy to get into the story and to get to know the characters I found the story to be interesting and well written But still I felt sometimes that the story lacked something, I just didn t [...]

    2. I have read 54 of her books before this one and have liked all This is the first I have not enjoyed Was she different or was I Her style seemed similar, her pace slower, the topic not clearly developed in spite of the time spent doing so I found it tedious and her saint uninteresting Usually she follows historical situations and interprets them or redefines them in interesting ways There may have been an incident or set of incidents that stimulated this story but it was not clear, leaving her st [...]

    3. I have been with this series from the beginning and at this point I stick with it as much from feeling the characters are like family than for the mystery itself I say this because generally even installments in the series that are less engaging than others are still really good reading experiences for me This was one of those less engaging ones Still good, but good for reasons other than the reason I picked up the book These historical mysteries are fabulous when it comes to the meticulous hand [...]

    4. I got this set of discs free Great as this is on my TBR List I am a big fan of Anne Perry s work She is outstanding at researching her topic and time period and getting details into the story As usual in her stories, there are several things going on at the same time The meshing of what is Pitt s primary task now that he is commander of the Special Branch, the reality of time passing portrayed by their oldest daughter who fans will remember from all the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt books now 16 And [...]

    5. This was a quick read as I was forced to speed through past overly emotional tale I know I did enjoy the early books in this series years ago, but something is different here It seems like a religious tract, truthfully, rather than historical novel accurately portraying people places time The characters this author carefully created years ago just seem like pieces of furniture in this telling.

    6. The Angel Court Affair by Anne Perry is a 2015 Ballantine publication It s hard to believe this series is celebrating its thirtieth installment I fell in love with Charlotte and Thomas a long while back, but it is another series I lose sight of from time to time, but, I still manage to keep up with.With Pitt finally getting his big promotion to commander of Special Branch, he is now waking up to all the politics involved, especially when he is commissioned to protect Sophia, a young woman who ma [...]

    7. Thomas Pitt, the commander of Special Branch, is still feeling the newness of his position When they re ordered to protect a young woman who is either a saint or a blasphemer, he struggles to comprehend the reasoning and then to focus on than the initial crime to think like a politician rather than a policeman Soon he suspects that Spanish politics might hold a clue, that Sophie s history may draw out the suspect.This is the first of Anne Perry s books at least, the first I ve read that deals e [...]

    8. Not my favorite Anne Perry I didn t find the plot as interesting or the writing as good as her other novels I miss Charlotte s involvement in Thomas cases now that he s head of Special Branch Angel Court had a little too much Anne Perry philosophizing about the meaning of life and what s going to happen to us after death.

    9. I loved Anne Perry s booksuntil Pitt ended up at Special Branch They have lost their interesting characters and complex plots It is all spies, international intrigue and quite frankly boring I think this is the last one of this series I will be reading.

    10. My reading history with Anne Perry is limited to the first five William Monk books and the first book in the Charlotte Thomas Pitt series, so I have no experience with her recent output prior to reading this novel I love the books I ve read previously Unfortunately, this novel does not meet my expectations from her.The premise is an interesting one, or at least has that potential A prominent young British woman starts life anew in Spain after rejecting an advantageous marriage proposal AFter mar [...]

    11. Some reviewers did not like the slower pace and theological focus of this edition of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, but I liked it a lot It shows a sensitivity to people of faith as well as those with questions while discussing the problems of organized religion not only during the Victorian Era, but also reflecting those same problems today I also like how the Pitt s daughter, Jemima, is developing as a character, asking hard theological and philosophical questions of her father as she g [...]

    12. I do enjoy the Thomas Pitt novels especially when Charlotte has bigger role, but since going into Special Services, she rarely gets to do than express her strong opinions at home In this case, the topic is theology and the long, long thoughts on the subject make this a slow read A woman preaching a new approach to religion is kidnapped and her two assistants murdered While PItt tries to find the woman, the juicier part of the investigation goes to Lady Vespasia newly married to Victor Narraway, [...]

    13. Thomas Pitt is now the Commander of the Special Branch He is given the responsibility of making sure no harm comes to Sofia Delacruz while in England Under his watch she disappears with two of her hand maidens The latter were found MURDER and Sofia missing I have been a fan of this series since the first book I while I did enjoy learning about the regular characters I didn t like all the words about religion, morals and political unrest in the world This an interesting story to readFull Disclosu [...]

    14. My first Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery in many years This series had made an favorable impression on me when I read it so I was eager to read this one and to see if the series was still as good as I remember Verdict reliable, worth reading, but not one of the author s better efforts and no page turner Pitt, the former policeman, as head of Special Branch, which deals in diplomatic cases and those of state importance, is tasked to protect an English ex pat, Sofia, married to a Spaniard She is [...]

    15. Thomas Pitt, as commander of the Special Branch, is usually tied up with terrorist cases, but in the case of Sofia Delacruz, he is back to old fashioned murder An Englishwoman, married to a Spanish gentleman, Sofia is the founder of a new religion hardly the material Thomas had been dealing with lately However, she has come to England, not only to preach her new doctrine, but to see her cousin who does not want to see her , Barron Hall, an important banker with influence on the finances of both [...]

    16. More intelligent Victorian mystery This time Pitt is caught in the maelstrom of religious opinions and dissent Pitt has been asked to guard Sofia Delacruz, a charismatic woman who is creating ripples amongst the religious by challenging their fast held beliefs Sofia is an English woman who ran away to Spain and has now returned as a religious speaker She brings with her a message of radical beliefs that is upsetting the status quo Pitt has been charged with her safety at a time when there is pol [...]

    17. This latest in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series is not as wonderful as all the other books in this series have been I received a galley copy of this book and was so excited to read it in advance of publication because Anne Perry has long been my favourite author, and I love both of her long running series Thomas Pitt is charged in this book with trying to keep a particularly controversial woman free from danger Sofia Delacruz is an ex pat British citizen who has lived for many years in Spain [...]

    18. I ve read all the Thomas and Charlotte books, and I really look forward to them, like a visit from an old friend This one didn t have as much Thomas and Charlotte time, and I missed that I m not at all sure about this Victor and Vespasia thingHappy though I may be for them, it combines two good characters, which in turn takes away from what you get out of them, if that makes any sense I can t say I found the Saint all that interesting of a character I don t know, I hate to say it, but this one j [...]

    19. Genul de carte care te face sa regre i c ai cump rat o chiar i de la un anticariat Nu tiu dac romanul se bazeaz pe ceva real, pentru c atunci c nd cau i Sofia Delacruz i apar doar ni te profile de insta i facebook Poate dac era din perspectiva ei ar fi putut devenii mai interesant, dar a a are toate elementele ce s l clasifice la plictisitor Mult dialog obositor la pachet cu descrieri lungi i enervante.Pe l ng faptul c se dore te a fi un mystery interesant se mai dezbate mult i f r rost problema [...]

    20. I can t believe I m saying this, but this was awful It took forever to get going, the whole religious sub plot was ridiculous and completely unbelievable, and the main plot was revealed in such a tortuous and convoluted manner and so late in the story, I didn t really care who was behind the plot, I just wanted it over Pitt was uncommonly dense in this onee wrap up was a hurried and unlikely confrontation between the bad guys, and Pitt seemed to be dragged along without being in charge of anythi [...]

    21. I generally like historic mysteries, especially Victorian ones, but this one had periods of very good writing, and periods of meandering plot The basic mystery that Thomas Pitt has to solve is the disappearance of a Spanish woman who has arrived in London to preach, what many people consider, blasphemous ideas She has plenty of enemies who might want to tarnish her reputation or kill her Thomas must dig into her history in both England and Spain to solve this crime Although the summary sounded i [...]

    22. There are about 30 pages of mystery and the rest is basically a philosophical treatise I was mostly bored and disappointed I ve stuck with this series for 30 books and this one seems phoned in Hopefully the next installment is back to the usual high quality I ve come to expect from Anne Perry and the Pitt series.

    23. Charlotte Thomas Pitt have become the least interesting characters in their own series view spoiler And the whole story relies on Thomas being an incredibly incompetent detective, let alone head of Special Branch hide spoiler

    24. Very disappointing I have enjoyed Anne Perry s Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels for many years, but with this one she lost me in the first chapter, and I don t intend to finish it I m not interested in her religious views Too bad she had to ruin a great series.

    25. The Angel Court AffairAnother excellent storytelling that held my interest throughout the entire read I have read all of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels with great satisfaction I will be anticipating the next episode.

    26. Definitely not a good book The plot did not seem to work at all and it was a true struggle just to finish this book I look forward to September and the next Monk story
