Publisher Description

Charles Lenox is at the pinnacle of his political career and is a delighted new father. His days of regularly investigating the crimes of Victorian London now some years behind him, he plans a trip to his uncle's estate in the expectation of a few calm weeks. When he arrives in the quiet village of Plumley, however, what greets him is a series of strange vandalisms upon the local shops. Only when a far more serious crime is committed does he begin to understand the great stakes of those events, and the complex and sinister mind that is wreaking fear and suspicion in Plumley. Now, with his protege at his side, the race is on for Lenox to find the culprit before he strikes again.

"I believe this to be one of the best in the Lenox series, maybe because I'm getting to know a bit more of characters on the periphery. I was completely caught unawares of the love interest-but Dallington needs someone soon! The plot of the murder mystery was well thought out and kept me guessing."

    " It was like catching up with a group of old friends. :) Very enjoyable! "

    " I have read books that were page turners and books that I just could not put down. This book was neither. It was in fact hard to finish. I kept waiting for a climax that never came. Most stories have a hero/main character that has some adversity during the story. Who would not want to be the main character, Charles Lenox? His life is so sugary sweet that it almost made my teeth hurt. "

    " Definitely not his best book, but still a good read. It has some suspenseful parts but some other parts were lagging a bit. All of his books have been very different. My favorite was the September Society and wish the author would have stuck to that style more. "

  • Overall Performance: 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5

    " A bit better than the last, but still not much better than OK. Many of the current and recurring characters are pretty much cardboard - even Lenox himself, though fairly well drawn, is mostly two-dimensional. This series still not nearly living up to its potential. "

    " This wasn't as good as the last one(A Burial at Sea), but I still really enjoyed it. "

    " As Charles Lenox feels about his Parliamentary career, I am left feeling a bit iff-ish about this book-I enjoyed it, but feel it could have been better. "

  • Overall Performance: 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5

    " Another enjoyable book in the series although not my favorite. Lennox's ambivalence between being a Member of Parliament and investigative work got a little tedious by the end of this book. "

    " Fluffy stuff! Another gentleman detective and lady sidekick but I read on .. I found the first 2/3s slow and only moderately interesting (although the author had the occasional stop-in-your-tracks poignant observational prose), but enjoyed the last 100 pages of good Victorian detective drama. "

    " I keep waiting for these characters to develop more texture, but in the meantime I'm always happy just to spend a few hours in the company of the 19th century English gentry. "

    " I'm not sure Lenox needed to come out of retirement-- almost half the book is rhapsodies about the new baby or complaints about his work in Parliament. "

    " I enoyed this mystery set in Victorian England and the aging dectective very much. The characters are charming and the small village of Pemberley, the main setting, and its inhabitants are delightful. Thank you Judy for lending it to me. "

    " Excellent entry in this series, containing suspense, humor, romance and resolution - with several interlacing mysteries to contemplate. Light but interesting. "

    " A very pleasant, easy to read mystery with (for a change) very nice people as the leading characters. The mystery is well-plotted and the pace is good and one gets a sense of the period. All in all a nice comfortable read to cleanse your literary palate before going on to more exciting stuff. "

    " Good book, but plot kind of static - kind of boring. The book moves away from the "mystery" itself and has a fine, uplifting ending, however. "
