Read Book Twenty One Days Daniel Pitt #1 –

Over the years I have enjoyed several of the Charlotte Thomas Pitt books by Anne Perry The author has now started a new series featuring Charlotte Thomas son Daniel Pitt Daniel has just finished his education to be an attorney and he s glad his father is proud of him One of his first cases involves assisting a senior attorney with a murder case Russell Graves is accused of murdering his wife Graves is to be executed in 21 days for the killing Daniel has to pull out all the stops and use the investigation techniues he picked up from his father to try and find the real killer before time is up Can he discover the truth before Graves is executed I enjoyed this book At times things moved a Soft Bots - Changing Roles little too slowly but once action kicked in again it saved the plot from becoming boring Daniel is a bit naive but I imagine his character will develop nicely as the series moves along Iike the fact that she is aging her characters and starting Daniel out in a series of his own Gives the books a dose of realism The ending had some sweet surprises that I did not expect I Soft Bots - Fuzzy Logic like Daniel as a main character He s just coming into his own and using the skills his parents taught him as well as his education He is a bit too naive at times though I m sure he will mature as books are written in this new series I did find some places where the plot got a bit confusing because it referred back to events in Charlotte Thomas Pitt novels that I haven t read But it wasn t important enough facts toessen my enjoyment of the story Can t wait for the next book in this series I oved the first few Charlotte Thomas books when I was a teenager Reading this book makes me want to go back and re read them and enjoy the books that I missed in the series over the years I voluntarily read an advance readers copy of this book from Random HouseBallentine via NetGalley All opinions expressed are entirely my own When an author writes a multiple book series featuring a character or in the case of Perry s original Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series a couple the decision must be made whether to keep the protagonists in a time bubble or to allow them to age Perry began her Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Victorian mystery series years ago with THE CATER STREET HANGMAN first published in 1979 and in that one upper class Charlotte meets Thomas Pitt a owly policeman While they solve this first mystery they fall in Timbre Composition in Electroacoustic Music (Contemporary Music Review love and willater marryOver the years the Pitts have partnered in solving many crimes at Instruments of Darkness least 32 of them because that s the number of books in the series and in raising their children This all started in Victorian times and now Perry begins a new series set in the Edwardian era 1910 for this first book featuring their son Daniel all grown up and a junior barrister at theaw firm of Fford Croft and Gibson As the book begins Daniel is on his own for the first time as defense in the trial of Roman Blackwell former policeman who had worked with Daniel s father before Thomas became head of Special Branch Blackwell now a private detective with his own moral code is still a friend so Daniel feels a special pressure to save BlackwellWell this particular trial is not the real plot of the book although it is uite interesting and takes up the first two chapters However it s just setting us up to see where Daniel is at this point in his career and to give him a personal relationship with Blackwell and Blackwell s mother who are somewhat important to the rest of the story and probably will feature in the books to followThe main plot revolves around Daniel s next case He is assigned to assist senior barrister Kitteridge in the defense of famous authorbiographer Russell Graves who is accused of the brutal murder of his wife The trial does not go well for them and Graves is convicted and sentenced to be hanged in 21 days hence the title of this book Now Daniel has only that amount of time to find the real killer and save Graves from his fate To do this he will be enlisting the help of investigator Blackwell and Blackwell s mother who knows the in s and out s of London society and also the assistance of a very interesting character Miriam Fford Croft daughter of Daniel s employer the owner of the My Uncle Oswald law firm where Daniel is a junior barristerMiriam is perhaps the most intriguing person in this book as a 40 year old single woman who is educated and knowledgeable about both medicine and chemistry Limited by the times she isiving in Miriam had passed all her examinations but was not awarded her degrees and is not recognized by her male peers But she makes a perfect sidekick for Daniel in helping him solve this crime Her observations The Umbrella Man (Inspector Samuel Tay lead to some crucial insights into what s going onThis book has the best of two worlds for me in mysteries 1 There are compelling courtroom scenes which I have always enjoyed and 2 there is the usual methodical investigative procedure with the search for physical clues and the interviewing of key suspects and witnesses Lots of twists and turns here and a few red herrings A very attentive reader can probably figure out the murderer before the Big Reveal but this is still a compelling read and a good beginning to the Daniel Pitt seriesIl be The Witch’s Warning (Aberrations looking forward to watching Daniel mature and even grow older as his parent did before him BTW not to worry fans of Charlotte and Thomas They have cameos in this book They aren t totally out of the picture but they have passed the crime solving torch over to their son Didn t enjoy the book in the beginning but thoroughly enjoyed it by the end Anne. In this first book in a new series Thomas Pitt's son Daniel races to save his client from execution setting him against London's Special Police BranchIt's 1910 and Daniel Pitt is a reluctantawyer 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.
