Twenty-One Days Publisher's Summary

Twenty-One Days is the first in an exciting new generation of Pitt novels, featuring Daniel Pitt, by New York Times best seller and the queen of Victorian crime, Anne Perry.

It is 1910, and the century is full of change. Sir Thomas Pitt, Head of Special Branch, has persuaded his son, Daniel, to take on his first case as a newly qualified barrister. Having successfully defended his client and made a lifelong friend, Daniel is summoned to the Old Bailey to assist in the defence of renowned biographer Russell Graves, who is accused of the brutal murder and disfigurement of his wife. When the jury finds him guilty, Graves is sentenced to be hanged in 21 days.

Graves insists he has been framed, and when Daniel discovers that Graves was writing a shocking exposé of Victor Narraway, Thomas Pitt's former friend and mentor from Special Branch, he fears the worst.... This exposé reveals state secrets so damning that someone might have wanted to silence him. And that 'someone' might be Daniel's father. With the reputations of those closest to him at stake, Daniel is in a race against time to uncover the truth and ensure that a man isn't sent to the gallows for a crime he didn't commit.

    It's 1910, and Daniel Pitt is a reluctant lawyer who would prefer to follow in the footsteps of his detective father. When the biographer Russell Graves, who Daniel is helping defend, is sentenced to execution for the murder of his wife, Daniel's Pitt-family investigative instincts kick in, and he sets out to find the real killer. With only 21 days before Graves is to be executed, Daniel learns that Graves is writing a biography of Victor Narraway, the former head of Special Branch and a close friend of the Pitts. And the stories don't shed a positive light. Is it possible someone is framing Graves to keep him from writing the biography-maybe even someone Daniel knows in Special Branch? The only answer, it seems, lies in the dead woman's corpse.

    Daniel Pitt is delighted that his sister is visiting London with her American husband, Patrick, a policeman, and their young daughters. But Patrick's trip has another purpose, for which he enlists Daniel's help. Philip Sidney, 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 Sidney 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.
