Author(s): 

The Charles Lenox series continues to paint a detailed picture of Victorian life while presenting an intriguing mystery. The romance between Charles and his wife is passionate, and supporting friends and relatives are valuable contributions to the series. Finch’s latest shows, in detail, the activities of Parliament in the time of Disraeli and Gladstone, the social attitudes of the period and the harshness of life for citizens of London in 1875.

Charles spends long hours dedicated to his role in Parliament, but part of him misses his former career as a private detective. He often finds himself helping the police and his detective protégé, Sir John, leaving less time for him to spend with his beloved wife and young daughter. When he visits a client for John, Charles finds himself drawn into a complex case involving an innocent country squire’s murder, a mysterious killer and Queen Victoria. Charles must make a decision that will change his life. (MINOTAUR, Nov., 304 pp., $25.99)
