Second mystery novel in the new Daniel Pitt series by Anne Perry

Triple Jeopardy: A Daniel Pitt Novel

By: Anne Perry

Rating: 4 of 5

Daniel Pitt is a fairly new barrister and is somewhat shadowed by his famous father (Sir Thomas Pitt). Daniel wants to do his best and not have to resort to relying on his father. He is making his way at his new firm with the knowledge that he was hired because of his family and not just his own reputation.

This puts Daniel is a place of working very hard to do whatever is put in front of him no matter if it is to his taste or not.

His new brother-in-law arrives from the United States with a tale that puts Daniel on the spot in asking his boss to take on the case that is related to it. He does, but he assigns it to Daniel, who would prefer that anyone else take it on.

Still, he follows the clues, which seem to lead back to his client and yet, Daniel must defend him.

The charges against his client were repeated a bit too often but it did show that guilt or innocence could be decided based on heresy and not on evidence if that heresy is repeated often enough.

I was able to figure out the whodunnit fairly close to the end. I am looking forward to reading more in this series and by this author in the future.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
