"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"-- Provided by publisher.

Part of the charm of the Pitt and Monk series was the description of life in Victorian England. Daniel Pitt, operating in 1910, is living in an environment not described as much different than ours. There are still horses around, women are not allowed to do much outside the home, and motor cars going 30 are scary, but otherwise it could be 1980. In this story, nothing much happens for the first 2/3 or so, and then D. Pitt and Miriam begin to figure out what is going on. However, the details revealed in the end don't really hang together, and the real culprit is disposed of in an auto accident, without us getting much chance to find out his motives. I much prefer William and Hester Monk.

I was surprised with a new series and that Daniel was chronologically an adult but very disappointed that Charlotte and Thomas had not inculcated their ethics and intelligent behavior in him. His character was shallow and the plot twisting and turning so the real mystery would be how to carry on reading. Fortunately many of her earlier titles are worth a 2nd or 3rd read. Is it the California environment?

Once again I have been disappointed by a recent Anne Perry novel. She used to write top notch, interesting mysteries with intricate plot points. This one was full of holes, errors, poor editing, and an underwhelming storyline. The characters themselves were the only interesting part of the book. I like the new generation of Pitt 'detectives'.

Anne Perry is amazing - She has been writing the Thomas Pitt and the William Monk series for 40 years and they never get stale and always have an intriguing new mystery. Now we are adding the second generation of the family. Highly recommend both series. Kristi & Abby Tabby

This is the second book in a new series for Anne Perry. The series already feels stale. Year after year, she puts in the time and effort to produce books that are increasingly boring and that are becoming a greater chore to read. Maybe it's time for her to retire--or for me to give up on her.
