In his forties, the Reverend Charles Howard still cut an impressive figure. A married Presbyterian minister in Toronto's east end, Howard was popular with the congregation that elected him, especially with the ladies, and most particularly with Miss Sarah Dignam. Respected in the community, Howard, as Visitor for the House of Industry, sat in judgment on the poor, assessing their applications for the workhouse. But now Howard is dead, stabbed and brutally beaten by someone he invited into his office. His watch and boots are missing. Has some poor beggar he turned down taken his vengeance?

I've read all the books in this series, and always found the characters interesting and sympathetic. Good plotting, engaging historical background.

This series was highly recommended and I was further intrigued by the PBS TV series. The book was well written and evoked the late 19th and early 20th century as well as I've ever read but the subject matter didn't draw me in - I couldn't find any sympathy for the narrow-minded characters. I realize that it's my problem, not the author's, but I couldn't help wanting to slap everyone.
