About the Author

Anne Perry was the bestselling author of two acclaimed series set in Victorian England: the William Monk novels and the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels. She was also the author of a series featuring Charlotte and Thomas Pitt's son, Daniel, as well as the Elena Standish series; a series of five World War I novels; twenty-one holiday novels; and a historical novel, The Sheen on the Silk, set in the Byzantine Empire. Anne Perry died in 2023.


Paise for The Fourth Enemy

"[Anne] Perry's courtroom drama . . . increases in intensity as the author craftily captures the reader's attention. The richly atmospheric tale brings the summer of 1912 to detail-rich life, from Titanic headlines to Miriam's bright-red Speedster."--Booklist

"Set in 1912, bestseller Perry's strong sixth Daniel Pitt novel (after 2021's Three Debts Paid) finds London barrister Daniel facing major changes in his professional life. . . . The author cleverly makes the most of a plotline not centered on a crime of violence. Four decades after her debut, Perry shows no sign of losing steam."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Barrister Daniel Pitt is thrown into the prosecution of a powerful man accused of a swindle that will remind readers of much more recent times than 1912. . . . [The Fourth Enemy is] familiar fare well served in Perry's plush, comfortable prose."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Three Debts Paid

"The prolific Ms. Perry is expert at summoning the looks and moods of her books' chosen periods, and her characters, from working-class to upper-crust, are well-drawn and engaging. . . . The solution to the mystery [provides] an undeniable jolt."--The Wall Street Journal

"As with the Thomas Pitt stories, author Perry fills her novels with commentaries on the social mores of the times, as well as its legal aspects, giving a mini-history of the period while weaving a complex tale of mystery and murder told from the point of view of Pitt's son, Daniel."--New York Journal of Books

"Perry has another winner on her hands. Once again she is not afraid to show the dark side of the human condition, and she does so with such impeccable style."--Bookreporter

Praise for Death with a Double Edge

"Timely . . . and engaging . . . another terrific mystery."--Bookreporter

"[A] veritable page-turner . . . Perry is a skilled craftsperson, and she delivers an exciting and satisfying resolution."--Historical Novel Society

"Brava Anne Perry--long may we continue to follow the exploits of the Pitt family."--Criminal Element
