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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Superb…Boasting one of Finch’s tightest and trickiest plots, this installment further establishes Lenox as a worthy heir to the aristocratic mantle of Lord Peter Wimsey.”

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
