Author Anne Perry introduces a new generation of Pitts: Daniel, a junior barrister in 1910 London, assists in the defense of an arrogant biographer whose work may touch on and stain the career of Dan’s father. The biographer has been convicted of the murder of his wife and sentenced to hang in 21 days. Pressured by a senior member of his firm, Dan risks using his underground connections to exhume the dead wife’s body for possible answers to the contradictions he has found.
First in a spinoff series, Twenty-One Days can be read alone—and may be enjoyed by fans of the long-running series featuring Daniel’s parents, Inspector Thomas Pitt and his wife Charlotte.
