Publisher's Summary

The second thrilling mystery in an exciting new generation of Pitt novels, from the New York Times best-selling author and queen of Victorian crime, Anne Perry. 

"Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries are marvels of plot construction" (New York Times). 

Daniel Pitt is delighted that his sister is visiting London with her American husband Patrick, a policeman, and their young daughter. But Patrick's trip has another purpose, for which he enlists Daniel's help. Philip Sydney, a young British diplomat, is accused of robbery and assault in Washington, but he has taken diplomatic immunity and fled to England. The perfect opportunity to obtain justice presents itself when Sydney is accused of a small embezzlement at the British Embassy in the USA, but as Daniel digs deeper into the case it becomes clear that vengeance is involved. 

When a witness is murdered in America suspicion of guilt falls on Sydney. But is somebody trying to frame him? And, if so, who and why? Daniel follows a trail that uncovers another murder, and leads from Washington to the idyllic Channel Islands, then to a dramatic scene in court that almost defies belief....

Another fine book in the series

As someone who's enjoyed Anne Perry's Charlotte & Thomas Pitt series, I was delighted to find she'd started another series centering on their grown son, Daniel. I very much enjoyed Twenty-One Days (the first book in the series) so was eager to read this one. It didn't disappoint. I like the characters very much and reuniting with some old favorites is fun. Daniel's growth as a new lawyer is done very well and I will be interested in seeing how it progresses. I would've given the book 5 stars except I thought the ending was too abrupt, but I suppose Perry skipped an epilogue because the next book will pick up where this one ended.

No Thanks

Anne Perry needs to do better. I have been a big fan since I started reading the series with heroes Monk and Pitt. And while all things must change in a popular series (although Agatha Christie didn't with Poirot or Arthur Conan Doyle with Holmes, but I digress) I do not like the series with Daniel and Jemaimah. First off, I realized too late that the book was about Daniel not Pitt and Charlotte. This was an unpleasant surprise. Understand Daniel is young and starting out but he is a thoroughly uninteresting guy. As for Jemaimah - is she going to be written out? Being in the US don't see how she wouldn't be. She barely registers in the interesting department. Secondly, the sections on the grandkids could be left out. Really. Conversations between a three year old and Daniel are frankly boring. Guess they are included to add family color but it was fluff. Thirdly, I have noticed this about Perry's books of late - no wrap up! This one was no exception. While the answer to the who done it was provided - there were a lot of loose ends! I have mentioned this before - instead of going on and on and on about a character;'s inner thoughts and turmoil over every little issue, how about an epilogue? Her earlier books were complete in that sense - they didn't just end in a bang. No postscript is very unsatisfying. I will not read any more about the kids. Hope she hasn't finished writing about the adventures of Pitt and Monk - I must have missed the books where Vespasia and Narraway pass away. Jemaimah mentions them briefly in passing which was a surprise. Anyway - just my subjective thoughts.

Wonderful book!

Just wish narrator could pronounce Potomac correctly. Being from DC, the pronunciation was very distracting.

Took Way too long

The story finished well but I almost didn’t get there. Anne Perry has a tendency to have her characters repeat the same thoughts and speculations over and over. This story dragged terribly.

It was enjoyable.

Usually a reader/performer uses different voices for the different characters. There were times listening to this book where I had no idea who was talking because the characters all sounded so similar. Otherwise it was a good story.

Excellent

I loved the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt novels so I was glad they were able to play a part in this novel. The actual mystery was fantastic. It looked bleak for Daniel Pitt's client but comes to a satisfying end. I look forward to her next novel.

Very good but not great

First the positive: excellent narration. Pleasing voice. Good characterizations. Made me feel that I could easily visualize the settings. Secondly, I don’t really have any true negatives. I thought there was a bit too much redundancy in the descriptions of the situations, and I would have liked a less abrupt ending. I thought a few loose ends could have been tied up. All that being said, I enjoy Ann Perry’s books and will await the next Daniel Pitt story.
