Daniel Pitt’s investigation into his colleague’s murder leads him through London’s teeming underbelly to the suspicious dealings of one of England’s most influential shipbuilding magnates in a thrilling novel from New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry.
On her first mission for MI6, the daring young photographer at the heart of this thrilling new mystery series by bestselling author Anne Perry travels to Mussolini’s Italy to rescue the lover who betrayed her.
London in 1910 is the setting of “One Fatal Flaw”, Anne Perry’s third chronicle of the conscientious young lawyer Daniel Pitt, whom a woman begs to defend her boyfriend from a charge of murder. He accepts the case and wins it, with the help of expert testimony from a highly regarded forensic pathologist. Then the same woman demands Pitt (and his expert witness) save her from conviction of an identical crime. Pitt is certain his unwelcome client is guilty. “We’ve got to be seen to try our damnedest to get her off, yet see to it that we fail,” he says after devising a daring double-game to serve both justice and his own conscience.
