Anne Perry has done it again with Three Debts Paid, the fifth installment in the Daniel Pitt series. Several murders have occurred on the streets of London, and Daniel’s friend from university, Ian, is heading the police investigation. Miriam fford Croft is back from getting her certification as one of the only women pathologists. There is ongoing chemistry between Miriam and Daniel, and Miriam is put in charge of the pathology lab due to Eve’s (her mentor) illness from exhaustion. The personal interactions are interesting, and the underlying suspense and story is filled with ups and downs, as well as building suspense.

Anyone who has read the previous installments in this series, will appreciate the excellent development of characters by Perry. She has done research and is able to capture the ambience of the period so that readers will be able to feel they are actually there. Perry is an excellent storyteller and the book is extremely well-written and easy to follow. Perry’s books are enjoyable because she has done so much research and it is true to form, making it possible for readers to actually learn some English history while reading an excellent murder mystery. The characters seem real, and they fit perfectly into the historical time period.

For those who have enjoyed Perry’s historical thrillers for decades, this series is a much needed addition to well-written, true to period historical mysteries. Perry is the queen of historical thrillers, and this series is a must read for her fans. Highly recommended.
