A killer is on the loose, targeting victims with a mysterious connection that young barrister Daniel Pitt must deduce before more bodies pile up, in this intricately woven mystery from New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry.A serial killer is roaming the streets of London, and Daniel Pitt’s university chum Ian, now a member of the police, is leading the search. The murders happen on rainy nights, but Ian knows the victims must have something in common beyond the weather. He turns to Miriam fford Croft, Daniel’s good friend and now officially one of the first female pathologists in London, to tap her scientific know-how to find details he and Daniel have missed.With Miriam involved in the murder investigation, Ian passes Daniel the case of Nicholas Wolford, their former university professor. Charged with assault after reacting violently to an accusation of plagiarism, Wolford, a proud, boastful man, is loath to admit he was in the wrong. But Daniel must defend him—whether he likes him or not.As the murders continue with no clue as to who is committing them, Miriam, Daniel, and Ian find themselves questioning everything. Is the “Rainy-day Slasher,” as the newspapers have dubbed the killer, really just one person? Or have the investigators stumbled into a more complicated web of deceit? The answer may lie closer than anyone could have expected.

I love Anne Perry. Thank you Netgalley and Ballentine Books for an ARC of this book. This is a part of the Daniel Pitt series. Daniel and Miriam afford Croft, who has just returned from studying pathology abroad because women can’t study pathology in the UK, Daniel has been given a case of assault due to an accusation of plagarism. Marian and Daniel are concerned about the Slasher victims. Marian finds clues that have been missed by the police. This is a page turning character based novel and again from Anne Perry and Ball engine Books. I love this Daniel Pitt series and anxiously awaiting another next year.#Netgalkey #BallentineBooks
It is three years since Daniel Pitt has joined the prestigious law firm of fford Croft and Gibson and he is taking on a case of accused plagiarism which led to an assault. The case proves to be interesting but the characters and their manipulation even more so. Throw in a serial murderer and it gets very interesting, very tricky and pay attention to the title.Many of the characters from the previous Daniel Pitt series are reintroduced and help to move the story forward. Perry never forgets to remind us of the inherent inequalities in the English education system which allowed women to study, but at a distance, while continuing to deprive them of the ability to qualify for professional careers. Ah, the insanity, allow a woman to gain a degree in Holland and then she can practice in England. I really love being reminded of that despite it being a minor point (prickly though it may be). Anyway, it was uplifting to find Miriam fford Croft elevated to a deserving position as Pitt is coming into his own.There is a good court case, with logic and legal banter. There is a murder mystery with any number of suspects. There are old friends getting together and assisting each other with solving their cases and new relationships are being formed. Anne Perry has mastered the early 1900 English mystery period genre and this book is a welcome addition her newest series.Thank you NetGalley and Ballantine Books for a copy.
If you like cliches and stereotypes, this book is for you. Couple that with a ending out of the blue, and you have a major disappointment.
A worthy rival of Christie.What more indeed needs to be said in order to fulfill this ridiculous word requirement?
I loved Anne Perry’s Thomas & Charlotte Pitt series and was sad when it came to an end. However, the Daniel Pitt series is almost a continuation in that our protagonist is Thomas and Charlotte’s son, who is an up-and-coming barrister. Three Debts Paid is the fifth book in the series, but the first one I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it; who doesn’t like a mystery that features a serial killer. However, I spent much of the book getting to know the various characters. There is handsome Daniel; his friend Ian from Cambridge days and now a police detective; love interest Miriam, a pathologist. Perry books are not quick reads but are good character studies with excellent atmosphere. While part of a series, I had no trouble following the storyline.
