Bodies that won't stay buried--is it a practical joke? Or murder? Lord Fitzroy-Hammond of Resurrection Row has been dead and buried three weeks when he turns up sitting atop a hansom cab. Grave robbing, though a crime, isn't Inspector Thomas Pitt's usual fare. But when the macabre joke is repeated, and the man's corpse is found sitting in the family pew the Sunday following his second interment, Pitt begins to wonder if perhaps there's some message in it. The case grows increasingly bizarre as other disinterred bodies appear. A new mother, Charlotte Pitt only takes a cursory interest in the grave robbing case until she hears Thomas mention the name of her late sister's husband, Dominic Corde, as a possible suspect. As Pitt follows leads into the slums and rookeries, Charlotte, too, is drawn into the politics and horrors of greed and exploitation. For Pitt and Charlotte, what begins as a mysterious case of musical corpses, becomes a deadly pursuit through the London underworld of pornographic photographers, brothels, and sweatshops.

Corpses being dug up and appearing in strange places, in odd numbers, create a scandal in upper class Victorian London. They also completely puzzle Thomas Pitt and his wife Charlotte, who he tries to keep in the dark. Except that the first one falls off a hansom cab almost at her feet. Pitt's job is nearly on the line, and so is his marriage, for a while. The couple solve the case, and put their marriage together. The tone is wonderful, full of humor and scandal.

Another great book in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery series. I love Victorian period mysteries and this author never disappoint. Great story!! Outstanding!!!

I think this an excellent addition to the series. Some fine insights here--I love the way Somerset Carlyle works to educate the wealthy young men with political position, or with the possibility of obtaining it. The conversion of Dominic Corde is terrific. Sorry if my spelling is inaccurate.
