Resurrection Row

Resurrection Row  - Anne Perry, Davina Porter I had read this back when it originally came out (1981! I can't believe it was that long ago). But it had been so long that as I listened to the audiobook I kept thinking it sounded familiar. Then about 3/4 of the way through I remembered the ending.

This is after Thomas Pitt and Charlotte are married and have a little girl. He's still insecure about her losing her position in society by marrying him and being okay with it. She's happy with her life as it is, chores and all. Pitt is called to investigate a case where a corpse (and then several) keep popping up. I remember being appalled at the workhouse conditions and the woman who worked in a match factory that fumes? somehow affected the condition of her jaw to where it was misshapen. Even knowing the end of the book, it was still intriguing about who-done-it. And of course, Davina Porter does a wonderful job with both the male and female voices. Would recommend this book/audiobook.
