I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a good first book in a new series. The author has an older series that involves some of the same characters. I haven’t read those books, but didn’t feel like I missed too much for not having read them. This book is well-written and had likeable characters.

Daniel Pitt is a young lawyer working in a prestigious law firm. He finds himself entwined in a murder case of a wealthy biographer that is convicted and sentenced to die in 21 days. The biographer insists that he did not kill his wife and Daniel is determined to find the real killer and save the convicted man’s life. He enlists the help of his famous detective father and some new cohorts to solve the mystery.

This book has plenty of action, as well as twists and turns. I will read more books in this series, and may even go back and read the previous books in the other series.
