Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas, 1866, and amateur sleuth Charles Lenox, recently engaged to his best friend, Lady Jane Grey, is happily celebrating the holiday in his Mayfair townhouse. Across London, however, two journalists have just met with violent deaths - one shot, one throttled. Lenox soon involves himself in the strange case but must leave it behind to go north to Stirrington, where he is running for Parliament. Once there, he gets a further shock when Lady Jane sends him a letter whose contents may threaten their nuptials.

In London, the police apprehend two unlikely and unrelated murder suspects. From the start, Lenox has his doubts; the crimes, he is sure, are tied. But how? Racing back and forth between London and Stirrington, Lenox must negotiate the complexities of crime and politics, not to mention his imperiled engagement. But as the case mounts, Lenox learns that the person behind the murders may be closer to him - and his beloved - than he knows.

Investigate more mysterious doings with Charles Lennox.

What the Critics Say

"With its vivid evocation of Victorian England and an appealing protagonist, this is a worthy addition to a fine series of historical whodunits." (Booklist)

    I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!

    Story
    "Ah, that's what I need...to relax with a cuppa and a mystery!"

    The operative word is "relax". A "cozy" mystery it is. This one fits the bill entirely!

    The time is before motor cars and telephones. The place is Britain. The "amateur" detective (Charles Lenox) is running for Parliament but not in London where he lives next door to his best friend and love of his life, Lady Jane Grey. They are recently engaged though they've known each other since childhood. Just before taking the train to the district he hopes to represent, two high ranking journalists are murdered on their doorsteps. His asked to handle the case but cannot. He does concede to follow the case via newspapers and telegrams.

    This give us three mysteries: who killed the journalist? will he win against local businessman? how's he going to handle both effectively!?

    James Langton gives excellent voice to Charles Finch's words and characters.

    After listening to two of Mr. Finch's books, I'm adding him to my wish list for the times when I need lighter fare.

    Story
    "Wonderful!"

    The main characters and their development gets more interesting with each book. The plot is intricate, yet still plausible.
    If you like a mystery that is suspenseful enough to hold your attention, but not morbid or vulgar, you will enjoy this series.
    The narrator is perfect!
