About this item

New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry enters the Edwardian era, and inaugurates an all-new series, as Thomas and Charlotte Pitt's son carries on his family's distinguished mystery-solving tradition. 1910: Twenty-five-year-old Daniel Pitt is a junior barrister in London and eager to prove himself, independent of his renowned detective father's influence. And the new case before him will be the test. When his client, arrogant biographer Russell Graves, is found guilty of murdering his wife, Daniel is dispatched by his superior to find the real killer before Graves faces the hangman's noose--in only twenty-one days. Could the violent death have anything to do with Graves's profession? Someone in power may be framing the biographer to keep damaging secrets from coming to light.
