Reviews

"Readers may find themselves smitten with Daniel [Pitt] and with the dauntless Miriam fforde Croft, whose relationship with Daniel deepens in this episode. . . . Primarily identified for her authentic period sets and well-rendered characters, [Anne] 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."--Booklist

"Veteran Perry dials back the period detail and the updates on the lives of the continuing characters to focus on one of her most teasing mysteries, this time with a courtroom finale that may be her strongest ever."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Twenty-one Days, the first Daniel Pitt novel

"Set ten years after Murder on the Serpentine, [Anne] Perry's excellent new series launch expertly takes the Pitts into a new century and makes use of the scientific advancements of the time, fingerprints and X-rays, to add fresh drama to the courtroom scenes. . . . Fans of Perry's long-running [Charlotte and] Thomas Pitt series will delight in following the adventures of a new generation."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Readers will quickly fall in love with [Daniel] Pitt, following along as he investigates a gruesome murder and chuckling as he throws those involved off kilter. Perry is a master at bringing setting to life, and readers will be taken in by the time and place as they get to know Daniel Pitt and those close to him in this engaging novel."--RT Book Reviews

"The maven of well-crafted Victorian mysteries and author of both the William Monk series and the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries introduces the Pitts' son, Daniel, junior barrister, in this first of what proves to be an intriguing, entertaining, and character-centric new series. . . . In a story that's nicely tied to the characters in the Pitt series, Perry introduces Daniel and his cohort, the brilliant Miriam fford Croft, and raises the knotty question of whether some clients are truly undefendable."--Booklist

"[Perry] seems just as comfortable in 1910 as she ever did back in Victoria's day."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Murder on the Serpentine, the final Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel

"For nearly four decades Anne Perry's riveting detective novels have played out against the backdrop of the Victorian era. . . . Blackmail, double agents, illicit weapon sales and the stench of treason arm this novel with the power to entertain as well as enlighten readers on matters of history, crime-solving, and devotion to queen and family."--The Washington Post
