Publisher's Summary

It’s 1876, and Charles Lenox, once London’s leading private investigator, has just given up his seat in Parliament after six years, primed to return to his first love, detection. With high hopes he and three colleagues start a new detective agency, the first of its kind. But as the months pass, and he is the only detective who cannot find work, Lenox begins to question whether he can still play the game as he once did.Then comes a chance to redeem himself, though at a terrible price: a friend, a member of Scotland Yard, is shot near Regent’s Park. As Lenox begins to parse the peculiar details of the death - an unlaced boot, a days-old wound, an untraceable luggage ticket - he realizes that the incident may lead him into grave personal danger, beyond which lies a terrible truth.With all the humanity, glamor, and mystery that readers have come to love, the latest Lenox novel is a shining new confirmation of the enduring popularity of Charles Finch’s Victorian series.

    "Good as always"
    What made the experience of listening to The Laws of Murder the most enjoyable?

    Charles Lennox is one of the nicest, kindest fictional characters I know. He and his world are always interesting in book version already, with this reader, they are even better.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was gripping and the characters appealing.


    What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

    He is a very good reader, who suits Charles Lennox' character and the story's mood.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think...


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend the book and Charles Finch's other books, less for being kept on the edge of the seat while reading/listening, more for overall thoughtfulness and interest.

    "Enjoyed very much"

    After reading all the others in this series, this was my first audio book of Finch. I enjoyed it just as much as the books. The storyline was well done, detailed and wrapped up sufficiently. The narrator did a good job of changing voices and making it sound more like a drama. Ready for the next....

    "Another solid hit for Charles Lenox series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Laws of Murder to be better than the print version?

    Great mystery and characters that you can care about. I've read all of the Charles Lenox mystery series (so far) and have greatly enjoyed them all. Looking forward to another installment.
