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, glamour, 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The upper-class amateur sleuth, an endangered species even in historical mysteries, is very much alive in Charles Finch’s charming Victorian whodunits.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Finch succeeds again in combining an intriguing story line with a lead that both newcomers and series regulars will find engaging.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Finch’s mystery debut…shows a distinct talent for scene setting and the creation of not always likable characters that can still get under your skin.”

    Library Journal

  • “A Victorian private investigator teams up with Scotland Yard to solve a case that involves one of their own…Finch’s clever hero overcomes despair and calumny to solve one of his author’s thorniest puzzles.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “James Langton’s cultured but perfectly comprehensible English accent suits the latest Charles Lenox mystery to a tee…Hansom cabs move through gas-lit streets, bobbies blow their whistles, lords act dishonorably, and the criminal class concocts devilish schemes. There are clues, mystery, romance, violence, and villains. Langton’s dialogue is lively, his characters easily distinguishable. His pace is good, and his nineteenth-century- English pronunciation almost perfect. Finch’s story lacks the moral ambiguity and soul-wrenching horror so often found in crime fiction. He’ll keep keep you awake listening without giving you nightmares.”
