A DEATH IN THE SMALL HOURS
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical
This Victorian-era series combines the best of a serious, complicated mystery: great historical details, a sympathetic main character and exact, beautiful writing. Quiet humor flows throughout, and the contrast between village and London life is interesting. There is even an unexpected romance. Wonderful in every way, this is not to be missed.
Charles Lenox is now a happy husband, father and rising MP. His years of solving mysteries in London are over. When he is asked to make the opening speech for the session of the House, he and his family go to his uncle’s estate in a tiny village to get away from the legislators. Charles is determined to stay out of things — until there is a death. The crimes are connected, subtle and very deadly, threatening someone he loves. (MINOTAUR, Nov., 320 pp., $24.99)
