Hardback Treachery at Lancaster Gate
Publication year: 2015
Media class: Hardback
Series title: The Inspector Pitt series
Thomas Pitt arrives at a devastating bombing in Lancaster Gate to find two policemen dead and three more gravely wounded. London's anarchists are blamed, but as Pitt and Inspector Tellman investigate they find it looks increasingly like a personal vendetta against those particular men. Did they lie about a drugs raid that went fatally wrong, and let an innocent man hang? The idea of police dishonesty cuts Tellman to the quick - he joined the force to protect society, not exploit it. But he must uncover the truth, however much he wants to resist the signs of blackmail and corruption.
Strangely I found this book a little less absorbing than some of the other Pitt mysteries. But overall a good read
