A shocking case pits Thomas Pitt against his own son
London, 1910: Junior barrister Daniel Pitt, son of renowned detective Thomas Pitt, is 25 years old and eager to prove himself. When his client, arrogant biographer Russell Graves, is found guilty of murdering his wife, Daniel is dispatched to find the real killer before Graves faces the hangman’s noose—in only 21 days.
Is someone in power framing the biographer to keep damaging secrets from coming to light? This theory leads Daniel’s investigation unexpectedly to London’s Special Branch—and to one of his father’s closest colleagues.
Caught between duty to the law and to his family, Daniel must find the truth in a tangle of dark deception—lest an innocent man swing for another’s heinous crime—as this new series debuts.
