Over the years I have enjoyed several of the Charlotte & Thomas Pitt books by Anne Perry. The author has now started a new series, featuring Charlotte & Thomas' son, Daniel Pitt. Daniel has just finished his education to be an attorney and he's glad his father is proud of him. One of his first cases involves assisting a senior attorney with a murder case. Russell Graves is accused of murdering his wife. Graves is to be executed in 21 days for the killing. Daniel has to pull out all the stops and use the investigation techniques he picked up from his father to try and find the real killer before time is up. Can he discover the truth before Graves is executed?

I enjoyed this book. At times things moved a little too slowly, but once action kicked in again it saved the plot from becoming boring. Daniel is a bit naive, but I imagine his character will develop nicely as the series moves along. I like the fact that she is aging her characters and starting Daniel out in a series of his own. Gives the books a dose of realism.

The ending had some sweet surprises that I did not expect. I like Daniel as a main character. He's just coming into his own and using the skills his parents taught him as well as his education. He is a bit too naive at times though. I'm sure he will mature as more books are written in this new series. I did find some places where the plot got a bit confusing because it referred back to events in Charlotte & Thomas Pitt novels that I haven't read. But it wasn't important enough facts to lessen my enjoyment of the story.

Can't wait for the next book in this series! I loved the first few Charlotte & Thomas books when I was a teenager. Reading this book makes me want to go back and re-read them and enjoy the books that I missed in the series over the years.

**I voluntarily read an advance readers copy of this book from Random House/Ballentine via NetGalley. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.** ( )

Fans of Anne Perry have no doubt thoroughly enjoyed her successful and long-running series with Charlotte and Thomas Pitt. In Twenty-One Days, she returns with the first in an exciting new generation of Pitt novels. In 1910 England, Daniel Pitt, junior barrister, is called upon to assist in the trial of Russell Graves, a well-known biographer accused of brutally murdering his wife. Although he vehemently declares his innocence, the case is lost and he is sentenced to be hung in twenty-one days time.

Daniel and the lead barrister are assigned separate tasks during the appeals process, while desperately striving for a stay of execution. Daniel’s new role is that of detective. Is Russell Graves really innocent, and, if so, who is the real killer? During his investigation, Daniel uncovers unsettling facts and is truly in for a race against time, not just for Graves, but for someone very close to Daniel.

Twenty-One Days has so much to offer. For example, how forensics played a huge role in solving this case, at a time when most of it was very new. Also, the person helping Daniel with that part of the investigation being a woman, Miriam, when they weren't treated equally in this field at the time. Along with Miriam, the groundwork was laid for other key players to be recurring characters in future books. I so look forward to diving deep into this series time and again. ( )

I received this book as an ARC from Netgalley.

I am a huge Anne Perry fan, but I prefer the Monk books to the Pitt series. This new series seems very promising though-new characters, a new century to explore, and as always, a good mystery. This one was maybe a bit less mysterious than previous books and more legally focused, but it was a good read.

There's enough out there about the plot, but I'll say I found this to be one of the more fast paced Perry books, while still giving us her usual deep insight into the human psyche. Her characters are wonderfully imperfect and complex, even if they are fairly naive new lawyers. No Sim-characters here with one fatal flaw, but otherwise loads of charm and perfection. Nearly every character is a real human, even if they're awful or boring or otherwise admirable.

If you're looking for a mystery writer that plumbs the depths of the mind and examines dark societal and personal issues (without every book having to be gritty or rough), while still being a fairly quick and active read, Twenty One Days will not disappoint. I only wish her books were twice the length! ( )

Thanks Netgalley and Librarything for a copy to read and review.

Lovely cover and first in a series.... loved it. Daniel Pitt takes after his father in this debut series. As a lawyer things are not always black and white, this case seems to have shades of grey as Daniel moves forward to prove the person is innocent after a guilty verdict. He has 21 days to prove this father did not kill the mother of his children. With the help of his dad and a few friends Daniel sets out on his 21 day epic journey to disprove the guilty verdict. Five stars of entertainment! ( )

This is the first I've read of the Daniel Pitt stories but it won't be the last. The plot is intricate but Perry brings it all together. If I have one hold back it is the incessant thinking by Pitt that he isn't smart enough and then he goes on to demonstrate knowledge and experience beyond his years. ( )
