Exciting and clever courtroom scenes along with methodical investigative procedural passages - this book has it all and never disappoints. The many twists and turns make for a most delicious read.
If you're a fan of author Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt Victorian era police investigative tales, then you'll be delighted to know that the torch has been passed to their son, young Daniel Pitt, as he begins his career as a barrister. Oh, he's as green as they come but clever and bright, just as his father is. Unlike his father, who is charged with finding a crime's perpetrator, Daniel must defend his client, as best able, regardless of whether his reprehensible client is guilty or not. The value system ingrained into Daniel's being by his parents is truly put to the test and leaves him with a moral dilemma. But defend, he must and cleverly so he does.
If you are new to Ms. Perry's writing, fear not, her character development and setting of place is very well done and you need not know the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series in order to enjoy this first in series Daniel Pitt novel. However, I caution you, once you've read this one, you'll most likely want to go back and read the other series. It too is wonderful.
