|Summary, etc.:|| "Young lawyer Daniel Pitt must defend a British diplomat who's accused of a theft that may hide a deadly crime in this compelling novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Twenty-one Days. Daniel Pitt, along with his parents, Charlotte and Thomas, is delighted that his sister Jemima has returned to London from the States for a visit. But it's not on the happiest of terms, since a violent theft just before her departure has left Jemima's good friend frightened and missing a treasured family heirloom. The thief appears to be a man named Sydney--a British diplomat stationed in America who, in a cowardly move, has fled to London, claiming diplomatic immunity. But when Daniel is forced to defend Sydney in court, he grows suspicious that he's not getting the whole story; so the lawyer puts on his detective hat to search out what information may be missing. With the help of plucky scientist Miriam Blackwood, Daniel parses through the evidence, and what begins as a stolen necklace turns out to have implications in crimes far greater--including a possible murder"-- Provided by publisher.

Moving into a second case after the Graves incident (Twenty-One Days, 2018), Daniel Pitt, junior barrister, finds himself defending a British diplomat accused of embezzlement and suspected of far worse. "Pitt the Younger" is the son of Charlotte and Thomas Pitt, stars of one of Perry's long-running earlier series. This time out, Daniel find himself at odds with his sister, Jemima, while he battles with the Foreign Office to get the information he needs to proceed. Readers may find themselves smitten with Daniel and with the dauntless Miriam Fforde Croft, whose relationship with Daniel deepens in this episode. When they head out together, Miriam is at the wheel, because Daniel can't drive. Primarily identified for her authentic period sets and well-rendered characters, 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. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
