Summary
Young lawyer Daniel Pitt must defend a British diplomat accused of a theft that may cover up a deadly crime in this riveting novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Twenty-one Days .

Daniel Pitt, along with his parents, Charlotte and Thomas, 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 a man named Philip Sidney, a British diplomat stationed in America's capital who, in a cowardly move, has fled to London, claiming diplomatic immunity. But that claim doesn't cover his other crimes. . . .

When Sidney winds up in court on a separate charge of embezzlement, it falls to Daniel to defend him. Daniel plans to provide only a competent enough defense to avoid a mistrial, allowing the prosecution to put his client away. But when word travels across the pond that an employee of the British embassy in Washington has been found dead, Daniel grows suspicious about Sidney's alleged crimes and puts on his detective hat to search for evidence in what has blown up into an international affair.

As the embezzlement scandal heats up, Daniel takes his questions to intrepid scientist Miriam fford Croft, who brilliantly uses the most up-to-date technologies to follow an entirely new path of investigation. Daniel and Miriam travel to the Channel Islands to chase a fresh lead, and what began with a stolen necklace turns out to have implications in three far greater crimes--a triple jeopardy, including possible murder.

Advance praise for Triple Jeopardy

"Readers may find themselves smitten with Daniel and with the dauntless Miriam fforde Croft, whose relationship with Daniel deepens in this episode. . . . Primarily identified for her authentic period sets and well-rendered characters, Perry writes in what she has called the 'Put Your Heart on the Page' method, with the focus placed squarely on what happens to people under the pressure of investigation. This book is an excellent example of her craft." -- Booklist

"Veteran Perry dials back the period detail and the updates on the lives of the continuing characters to focus on one of her most teasing mysteries, this time with a courtroom finale that may be her strongest ever." -- Kirkus Reviews
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Moving into a second case after the Graves incident (Twenty-One Days, 2018), Daniel Pitt, junior barrister, finds himself defending a British diplomat accused of embezzlement and suspected of far worse. Pitt the Younger is the son of Charlotte and Thomas Pitt, stars of one of Perry's long-running earlier series. This time out, Daniel find himself at odds with his sister, Jemima, while he battles with the Foreign Office to get the information he needs to proceed. Readers may find themselves smitten with Daniel and with the dauntless Miriam Fforde Croft, whose relationship with Daniel deepens in this episode. When they head out together, Miriam is at the wheel, because Daniel can't drive. Primarily identified for her authentic period sets and well-rendered characters, Perry writes in what she has called the Put Your Heart on the Page method, with the focus placed squarely on what happens to people under the pressure of investigation. This book is an excellent example of her craft.--Jane Murphy Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Perry's so-so sequel to 2018's Twenty-One Days, likewise set in 1910 and featuring London attorney Daniel Pitt, offers some intriguing plot twists but little more. A visit to London from Daniel's sister, Jemima, and her family, who live in Washington, D.C., puts Daniel in a difficult professional position. Jemima's policeman husband, Patrick Flannery, asks Daniel to help get justice for Rebecca Thorwood, who belongs to one of Washington's most prominent families. The Thorwood home was broken into in the middle of the night by an intruder who ripped a diamond pendant off Rebecca's neck. Her father recognized the criminal as Philip Sidney, a diplomat at the British embassy, who later fled back to England after claiming diplomatic immunity. When Sidney is charged with embezzlement in a separate case, Daniel agrees to defend him in court, but the news that an employee of the British embassy in Washington has turned up dead creates complications. The action builds to an overly melodramatic denouement. Perry will need to inject Daniel with more depth for this series to succeed. Agent: Donald Maass, Donald Maass Literary.
