  • A decent legal mystery

    In the third installment of Anne Perry's series featuring Daniel Pitt, son of Charlotte and Thomas Pitt of a previous beloved series, twenty-five year old, now a barrister with a noted London firm, becomes involved in two cases in which fires resulted in two deaths. As he proceeds with his defenses of two individuals, Daniel recognizes lies and injustice and works with colleagues to find the truth. I am a great fan of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series and have read the three books in this new series. I have not found any of these new books to be as absorbing as the previous series.

  • Anne Perry’s One Fatal Flaw

    Daniel Pitt is a young lawyer at the prestigious law firm of fford Croft. It is the year 1910. The story takes place in London where there is a warehouse fire with a death occurring. But was the death a result of the fire or a sharp blow to the man’s head? Miriam Croft is the daughter of Marcus. She is a very smart, well educated woman. She is very knowledgeable in the science and criminality. This means that she is out of place in a time when women are considered as inferior and to be seen but not heard. Miriam is essential in Daniel’s defense of the man accused of murder. She presents Daniel with the opportunity to meet Sir Barnabus Saltram. This man is an expert on fires. Miriam had studied with him. He is crucial to the case. Then a second fire case arises with the same circumstances plus an old cold case is brought to light. What will be the outcome? Three dimensional, vivid, colorful characters involved in a fast paced murder mystery with plenty of twists and turns. I volunteered to read One Fatal Flaw. Thanks to the publisher via Net Gallery for the opportunity. My opinion is voluntary and my own.

  • Intriguing!

    early-20th-century, lawyers, London, arson, murder-investigation, friendship, forensics, gangsters The best thing about dropping into a spin-off series by an author I enjoyed in the past but who slipped off my radar is a newer and more evidence biased appreciation of her ability. The original mystery series began before Daniel's parents had even met and continued onward as the constable rose through the ranks and the (demoted as a result of her marriage) society heiress continued to assist him with cases, some of which she dragged him into. Now it's 1910 and their second child, Daniel, is a fledgling lawyer in a fairly prestigious office. When a probably unwinnable and supposedly cut and dried case comes to his attention he calls on friends and digs deep. One memorable aspect (aside from the misogyny of the era) is a look into the early development of forensic application to investigations. Good plot full of twists, misdirections, and red herrings all done very well. I think that her writing has gotten even better and I plan to reread the original series until it's time to catch up to this one! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • A mystery element was revealed right at the end

    Lawyer Daniel Pitt is asked to defend a criminal in a case of arson and murder which seems cut-and-dried, only it escalates into another case. Two warehouses have burnt down and two murders have been committed exactly the same way. He calls upon experts on forensic science to present evidence of what really happened in these fascinatingly complex cases. One Fatal Flaw by Anne Perry is number 3 and the last in Daniel Pitt Mysteries Series published by Ballantine Books. We follow new lawyer Daniel Pitt as he is asked to defend a known criminal in an arson-murder case. Soon there is an identical case, and they both seem disturbingly similar to a case 20 years ago. Daniel gets help from forensic scientist Miriam fford Croft as well as his powerful father, Thomas Pitt of Special Branch, to prove what really happened. Secondary character Miriam fford Croft is an interesting female character with views that would fit right into the 2000s. She is well educated and is frustrated that women are not allowed to earn degrees in England 1910. I think she is hard working and an impressive character despite having had serious setbacks in her personal life. I was pleased to see she found a way to deal with her professional problems and I she is my favorite in this story. The historical setting of this plot is London 1910 when English women were expected to marry. Education was considered a waste of time. Miriam fford Croft managed to complete her studies, but didn’t earn a degree because she was a woman. As Anne Perry’s books are set mainly in 1800s, there are elements of male prejudice against women in most of them. In One Fatal Flaw it is a prominent part of the plot, which I enjoyed a lot in the way I would a horror movie. One Fatal Flaw (Daniel Pitt Mystery #3) by Anne Perry is a quick and easy read with an exciting plot set in a new century. The writing is vivid and the character building excellent. I enjoyed reading Triple Jeopardy #2 in Daniel Pitt Mysteries Series, just as it was released. One Fatal Flaw includes hints to previous stories, giving just enough info about characters for it to work excellently as a standalone as all other works of Anne Perry. I love Anne Perry’s unique cockney dialect writing, and the mystery element of Miriam’s personal life, which was revealed as a little gem right at the end. I am excited to read anything else she releases in future. Fans of Anne Perry will love One Fatal Flaw. As will readers of historical crime fiction. Similar authors to explore might be C.S. Harris or Charles Finch. Thank you to the local Public Library of Kristiansand for providing One Fatal Flaw which gave me the opportunity to share my honest review. All opinions are completely my own. My rating: 5 stars / 5 Main reasons: Excellent plot, superb writing, great characters
