    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Young lawyer Daniel Pitt must defend a British diplomat who's accused of a theft that may hide a deadly crime in this compelling novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Twenty-one Days. Daniel Pitt, along with his parents, Charlotte and Thomas, is delighted that his sister Jemima has returned to London from the States for a visit. But it's not on the happiest of terms, since a violent theft just before her departure has left Jemima's good friend frightened and missing a treasured family heirloom. The thief appears to be a man named Sydney--a British diplomat stationed in America who, in a cowardly move, has fled to London, claiming diplomatic immunity. But when Daniel is forced to defend Sydney in court, he grows suspicious that he's not getting the whole story; so the lawyer puts on his detective hat to search out what information may be missing. With the help of plucky scientist Miriam Blackwood, Daniel parses through the evidence, and what begins as a stolen necklace turns out to have implications in crimes far greater--including a possible murder"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 March #2

Moving into a second case after the Graves incident (Twenty-One Days, 2018), Daniel Pitt, junior barrister, finds himself defending a British diplomat accused of embezzlement and suspected of far worse. "Pitt the Younger" is the son of Charlotte and Thomas Pitt, stars of one of Perry's long-running earlier series. This time out, Daniel find himself at odds with his sister, Jemima, while he battles with the Foreign Office to get the information he needs to proceed. Readers may find themselves smitten with Daniel and with the dauntless Miriam Fforde Croft, whose relationship with Daniel deepens in this episode. When they head out together, Miriam is at the wheel, because Daniel can't drive. Primarily identified for her authentic period sets and well-rendered characters, Perry writes in what she has called the "Put Your Heart on the Page" method, with the focus placed squarely on what happens to people under the pressure of investigation. This book is an excellent example of her craft. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

First seen in the LJ-starred Twenty-One Days, Daniel Pitt—the lawyer son of Perry's popular Thomas and Charlotte Pitt—faces a sticky case. His sister Jemima is back in London from the States, as is British diplomat Sydney, who's accused of stealing a family heirloom from a friend of Jemima. Alas, Daniel is set to defend him but suspects that he's not been told the whole story

PW Reviews 2019 February #4

Bestseller Perry's so-so sequel to 2018's Twenty-One Days, likewise set in 1910 and featuring London attorney Daniel Pitt, offers some intriguing plot twists but little more. A visit to London from Daniel's sister, Jemima, and her family, who live in Washington, D.C., puts Daniel in a difficult professional position. Jemima's policeman husband, Patrick Flannery, asks Daniel to help get justice for Rebecca Thorwood, who belongs to one of Washington's most prominent families. The Thorwood home was broken into in the middle of the night by an intruder who ripped a diamond pendant off Rebecca's neck. Her father recognized the criminal as Philip Sidney, a diplomat at the British embassy, who later fled back to England after claiming diplomatic immunity. When Sidney is charged with embezzlement in a separate case, Daniel agrees to defend him in court, but the news that an employee of the British embassy in Washington has turned up dead creates complications. The action builds to an overly melodramatic denouement. Perry will need to inject Daniel with more depth for this series to succeed. Agent: Donald Maass, Donald Maass Literary. (Apr.)
