Up until this book, I had not read an Anne Perry book. I am happy to say that I will be changing that in the near future. I found the book set in 1910 Victorian England to be a wonderfully paced novel that had just the amount of intrigue that held one's interest.

I can hardly begin to tell you how excited I am about this new series – and I almost missed it! It takes place in a later time period than I normally read, so I almost passed it by. However, it is by an author whose writing I enjoy and it featured the son, Daniel, of the lead characters, Charlotte and Thomas Pitt, in another series that I really enjoy – so I decided to give it a try. The writing is great, the plot is excellent and I came to really l ...more

I absolutely loved this race-against-the-clock story for several reasons. First, Perry draws Edwardian-era London with the same finesse she loans to her Victorian mysteries. The research (Especially in budding forensics ) is exceptional. I also really loved Daniel. I have to tell you that a much as I love Charlotte and Thomas Pitt, it is about time for someone else to take the stage and Daniel is the perfect hero. A junior barrister assigned to his first case, he has the same curious nature as h ...more

I was a rabid Perry fan back in the day, devouring every book in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt and William Monk series for years; I stopped reading both when I got caught up in other historical mystery series. This new series makes me want to go back and read the Thomas Pitt books I missed, but you can dive in with ...more
i did not realize that anne perry had decided to create a new series, with the Pitts' son being the main character - a very likeable person, still very young at discovering the mean streaks of humankind - there is the same pattern in the daniel pitt stories as in his parents stories or in the he ...more

It’s easier to describe Twenty-One Days as what it’s not rather than what it is.
It’s not a thriller.
It’s mystery, but it’s not complex.
It’s not a romance.

The last of the Charlotte/Thomas Pitt novels ended on a triumphant note as Thomas was knighted by the Queen for his services. After all of his difficult challenges and tribulations it was a fitting and perfect end. Much to my joy, the baton has been taken up in this new novel by his son, Daniel Pitt, a newly minted young lawyer. This effectively gets Anne Perry back to murder mysteries as opposed to foiling anarchists and other threats to the state and will be ...more
