Seven Dials by Anne Perry
Thomas Pitt, mainstay of Her Majesty's Special Branch, is summoned to Connaught Square mansion where the body of a junior diplomat lies huddled in a wheelbarrow. Nearby stands the tenant of the house, the beautiful and notorious Egyptian woman Ayesha Zakhari, who falls under the shadow of suspicion. Pitt's orders are to protect -- at all costs -- the good name of the third person in the garden: senior cabinet minister Saville Ryerson. This distinguished public servant, whispered to be Ayesha's lover, insists that she is as innocent as Pitt himself is. Pitt's journey to uncover the truth takes him from Egyptian cotton fields to the insidious London slum called Seven Dials, to a packed London courtroom where shocking secrets will at last be revealed.

SEVEN DIALS by Anne Perry is 8 cassettes and approximately 11 hours unabridged. It was narrated by Michael Page. This is #23 in Thomas and Charlotte Pitt Novel.

I really enjoyed this one and Michael Page did a marvelous job with all the voices in this book. I have not read or listened to anything by Anne Perry so this was a good one to listen to. I definitely will be going back to start the series from the beginning and read to at least this point or further.

I really enjoyed the scenes from Alexandria that Thomas described while trying to find information about Ayesha and Mr. Lovett. I really didn't have this one figured out and because I was listening didn't peak at the end.

It had all the ingredients of a wonderful historical novel. Mystery, intrigue, romance and wonderfully created places in historical London and Alexandria.

I am giving this 4 out of 5 stars. I had a little trouble getting through the first couple of tapes, but once I did get engaged, it was hard to stop listening to this wonderful mystery.
