An international affair
Daniel Pitt is delighted that his sister, Jemima, and her family have returned to London from the States for a visit. But the Pitts soon learn of a harrowing incident: In Washington, D.C., one of Jemima’s good friends has been assaulted and her treasured necklace stolen. The perpetrator appears to be Philip Sidney, a British diplomat stationed in the nation’s capital, who, in a cowardly move, has fled to London, claiming diplomatic immunity. But that claim doesn’t cover his other crimes…
It falls to Daniel to defend Sidney, but when an employee of the British embassy in D.C. has been found dead, Daniel grows suspicious about Sidney’s alleged crimes and searches for evidence in what has blown up into an international affair.
