Book Review by Susan Herrick, Reference Librarian at FADL
If you love a good mystery, Anne Perry’s books are for you. Daniel Pitt, the protagonist of this novel, is a young lawyer who is engaging and thoughtful. He is drawn into this mystery through a case of mistaken identity. It isn’t his friend who was killed, but a partner, Drake, who was killed in a place no one could imagine he would ever visit. Perry evokes London’s dark side so clearly I felt the chill in the air.
Daniel investigates Drake’s life, talking with powerful people and learning enough to move up the line. He is careful not to offend as he closes in, but word is spreading. Those desperate to remain unknown have taken offense and are threatening his family; his father is head of a special branch and his mother is an investigator in her own right.
This story is such a compelling tale I had to keep reading just one more chapter. Hopefully Perry will continue with Daniel’s story as she did with his parents’ stories. You can place a hold on this library book, available in several formats, at https://bit.ly/2SGf5w0
